Bubonik Funk

“Oddfish” mixes Southern-fried blues-rock, smooth and sunny 311-style funk, and the quirkiness and attitude of early Red Hot Chili Peppers – a formula its tweaked on its fifth release.

Gedeon Luke & The People

Memphis-raised, New York-based band leader Gedeon Luke released his full-length debut album “Live Free & Love” with his eight-piece band the People on June 3. The album and Luke himself is a throwback to gritty soul and funk greats Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone. There’s a spiritual undercurrent that recalls the best uplifting and unifying anthems that runs throughout the record.
