Funkadelic Shares Grooving New Remix Featuring Kendrick Lamar And Ice Cube

first_imgThings are about to get funky up in here.Storied funk legends Funkadelic came out with a grooving new album called First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate back in 2014, with the soulful tune “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?” The song took on a new life in 2015, when George Clinton released a remix of the track featuring Kendrick Lamar and Louie Vega. While that certainly rocked, the song has found yet another revival with a brand new mix, getting into an R&B-type rhythm with verses from Lamar and Ice Cube.Listen to the new tune, courtesy of Complex, below:last_img read more

Watch The Black Keys And Cage The Elephant Members Sit In With Prophets Of Rage In Nashville

first_imgLast night, the Rage Against The Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets Of Rage brought their “Make America Rage Again” tour to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, and they invited some local special guests to help them out on stage. Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant, both Nashville residents, joined the band for their cover of MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams”.Prophets of Rage had previously been joined (twice) by Foo Fighters man Dave Grohl on the cover, but this super-charged version may take the cake. The performance was certainly high energy, with Shultz’ wild skills as a front man on full display as he sprinted around the stage. Auerbach added his trademark bluesy guitar solos as he traded licks with Tom Morello towards the end of the track.Thanks to YouTube user Bert McCarley, we can watch the awesome guest spot in all its glory.

Lettuce Carves Their Impressive Legacy Onto “Mt. Crushmore” [Stream/Review]

first_imgHot on the heels of their most recent release, Crush, funk futurists Lettuce return with Mt. Crushmore, a collection of tracks that are easily some of the finest they have produced. Though a majority of the material on their new EP is from the Crush sessions, that speaks more to the amazing quality of that album than it does to the strength of the material here. In fact, with a focus on their spacier and more open and experimental facets, this will quickly become one of the most beloved parts of the band’s already impressive catalog.Listen to the new EP below, and read on for our take on the new release.A majestic, time dilated hook from The Shady Horns provides a regal introduction to the amazing space jam on title track “Mt. Crushmore.” The pulsating, stutter start beat from drummer Adam Deitch is all modern, but the lush instrumentation that surrounds it is pure timeless soul and funk. Simultaneously evoking the spirit of badly dubbed martial arts films and the fiercest dance floors, this disc seems a natural source of tunes for future film makers to mine for super fly sound track fodder.Starting off their EP with what is easily the band’s most pure distillation of their disparate discography is a bold statement about the quality of the material being presented here. On “116th St.”, they show how adept they are at working together. The rhythm section and the melodic side share the duties of driving the musical narrative forward down a slinky, sassy road. A break out solo from Eric “Benny” Bloom sees him skip along the ever speeding melody, neither wanting or needing for a slower pace to shine.That mix of skill and attitude is reflective of the entirety of the player in the Lettuce squad. After the long running “Lude” returns for installment number five, Lettuce plays a game of follow the leader on “Elephant Walk.” Marrying the guitar and organ while using them to double the bass and drums allows the organ and horns to explode from their respective prisons. The use of drama generates lush waves of warm and enveloping madness that sweeps all the world’s cares away.“Ransome” shows the band capable of a slightly sinister side in an ominous opening before getting down to the organ driven boogie that is at the heart of the piece. Guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno turn in a series of performances that, when looked at as part of the body of work that also produced the full length Crush album, have to be taken as some of the finest work in the funk field. The spacier solo work contrasts so perfectly with the sped up rhythm strumming on “Ransome” that this should serve as a text book example of how players can compliment each other and still truly speak in their own musical voice.The penultimate track is also the first single from Mt. Crushmore, “The Love You Left Behind,” and features guest vocalist and frequent collaborator Alecia Chakour in a sultry and stunning display of instant connection. That instant rapport makes her call for embracing the love around you afar more urgent and personal message, a word to the wise from an old and trusted friend. The only negative of the album is realizing that the band most known for their instrumentals could also be producing stellar work like this. Check out the track HERE.Finally, to close out the album, the “Interlude” we have been getting peeks at for some time now is given a bit over a minute to further worm itself into our collective musical subconscious.The real take away from Mt. Crushmore is just how much Earth shattering music Lettuce is creating right now. Even though this album just dropped, another trip into the studio would do us all a world of good. They owe it to themselves and fans of music all around the world to see just how far they can go and how down and dirty their funk can get.Don’t miss Lettuce tonight and tomorrow night at the PlayStation Theater in New York, NY, performing with support from The Floozies and Red Baraat.

first_imgOn Saturday night, the legendary drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie took to Denver for an intimate performance at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox.

L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Live Collaborations Of 2017

first_imgmoe.queous, “Plane Crash” | Brooklyn Comes Alive | Brooklyn, NY | 9/23/17In late September, Brooklyn Comes Alive returned to Williamsburg for a weekend of unique collaborations, ambitious tribute sets, and one-time-only performances from many of the most inspiring musicians in the live music scene. One of the most highly anticipated sets at this year’s edition of BCA was moe.queous, a combination of jam-scene-upstarts Aqueous and guitarist/vocalist Al Schnier and drummer Vinnie Amico from moe. Aqueous and moe. both hail from Buffalo, NY, so the connection between the bands coming into this performance was strong. It quickly became clear during this set that Aqueous and moe. are cut from the same cloth, and it was one of the most memorable sets of a weekend filled with many highlights.Schnier and Aqueous guitarists Mike Gantzer and Dave Loss showcased great chemistry together, attacking their guitars both separately and at-once like true masters. If you closed your eyes during the set, it often sounded like missing-moe.-guitarist Chuck Garvey was up there harmonizing with Schnier, a key to re-creating moe.’s dual-guitar sound. Without percussionist Jim Loughlin‘s unique multi-instrumental presence, Amico and Aqueous drummer Rob Houk made up for his absence in spades, delivering a thunderous double-drum connection that gave the whole set a super-charged feel. Evan McPhadden was in the pocket throughout, masterfully recreating the bass sound of moe. bassist Rob Derhak, who was then in the midst of his battle with cancer.As a result of Derhak’s battle with cancer, opportunities to hear moe. songs in a live setting at the time was up in the air at the time, so the performance already had the makings of a special and emotional show. Making the set all the more special was the band’s epic performance of Derhak’s classic anthem “Plane Crash”, which served as the centerpiece of the entire performance. Schnier made sure to take some time to say a few words about Derhak, dedicating the song to his longtime musical compadre before handing the reins to Gantzer to lead the band through “Plane Crash”. Gantzer was on fire throughout, and clearly had the time of his life up on stage playing alongside some of his musical heroes.See below for a full, multi-cam HD video of moe.queous performing “Plane Crash” at Brooklyn Bowl from Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017!“Plane Crash” As the year comes to a close, it’s time to look back at the wild ride and whirlwind that was 2017. For this series of Live For Live Music staff picks, we’ll be reliving many of the glorious musical moments from the past year. We’ve already taken a look at a select few of the awesome jams, bust outs, live covers, and music festivals that went down this year, and today, we’re revisiting our staff’s favorite live collaborations of 2017. Enjoy!L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Jams Of 2017L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Bust Outs Of 2017L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Live Covers Of 2017L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Music Festivals Of 2017Hampton 70 | The Fox Theatre | Atlanta, GA | 5/1/17There’s no narrowing it down. In what will become one of Rock and Roll’s greatest stories, we continue to dissect what transpired at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on May 1, 2017. For nearly four hours, different combinations of world-class musicians graced the stage with Colonel Bruce Hampton, performing joyous renditions of classic rock and blues covers along with seminal Bruce Hampton material to a packed house (and countless more via live stream) in honor of his 70th birthday. It was a joyous celebration; a highly potent, awe-inspiring display of musicianship; a moving show of respect and admiration for one of the most influential performers of his generation.Stranger Than Fiction: The Cosmic Curtain Call Of Col. Bruce HamptonEven before Hampton collapsed and died during the show’s encore, this was a performance of epic proportions, a night of music that would be talked about for years to come. Many of the jam scene’s most talented and respected players–including John Bell, Dave Schools, Jon Fishman, Warren Haynes, Karl Denson, Oliver Wood, Jimmy Herring, Chuck Leavell, John Popper, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer and so many more–came out to pay their respects to a the jam scene elder statesman.It would be impossible to replicate the energy in the room, and the reality of the experience is inconceivable to those who were not there, but thanks to the advancements of technology, there is at least sound proof of the Colonel’s last magic trick. Listen to the full show below, courtesy of Dfries81: Below is a full list of musicians that performed at Hampton 70: Col. Bruce Hampton, Peter Buck, Warren Haynes, Daniel Wytanis, Brandon Niederauer, John Popper, Vince Herman, Tyler Greenwell, Derek Trucks, Emil Werstler, Duane Trucks, Jimmy Herring, Drew Emmitt, Jeff Sipe, Yonrico Scott, John Bell, Susan Tedeschi, Jon Fishman, Tyler Neal,  Carter Herring, Darren Stanley, Oliver Wood, Jeff Mosier, Joe Zambi, Dave Schools, Kevin Scott, Jake Peavy, Matt Slocum, Kevin Kinney, Chuck Leavell, Tinsley Ellis, Johnny Knapp, Hardy Morris, Karl Denson,Darick Campbell, Denny Walley, and more… Jim James With Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, “Been Caught Stealin’” | LOCKN’ | Arrington, VA | 8/25/17Anything is possible at LOCKN’. Promoter Peter Shapiro is behind the Arrington, Virginia festival—the same man who reunited the surviving members of the Grateful Dead with Trey Anastasio for the 50th anniversary Fare Thee Well shows. During the late hours of Friday night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead took to the Relix Stage for their first of two late-night sets this weekend. Continuously straying away from a “traditional” set, the Grateful Dead-inspired quintet–Joe Russo, Scott Metzger, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, and Dave Dreiwitz–delivered a stellar showcase packed with curveball surprises.Jim James, frontman of My Morning Jacket who had performed a solo set earlier in the evening, joined the group for a shocking debut cover of “Been Caught Stealing” by Jane’s Addiction toward the end of the set. My Morning Jacket delivered one of the most memorable performances at the 2016 LOCKN’, so it’s no wonder the festival tapped James to return for a second year. James stuck around to help close the set with “Brown Eyed Women” before returning to the stage with Nicole Atkins for an emotionally-charged “Brokedown Palace” encore, blowing the minds of all in attendance in arguably the most exciting collaboration of all LOCKN’s time.You can also watch the collaborators execute “Brown Eyed Women” and “Been Caught Stealing” below, courtesy of monihampton.“Brown-Eyed Women”“Been Caught Stealing” Trey Anastasio with Tedeschi Trucks Band | “Delta Lady” & “Mountain Jam” | Beacon Theatre | New York City, NY | 10/14/17On the final night of their six-night run at the Beacon Theatre (marking the band’s 27th performance at the venue to date), Tedeschi Trucks Band played two full sets of rock-and-roll originals, covers, and sit-ins from the one-and-only Trey Anastasio. The Phish frontman helped the 12-piece ensemble close out their second set with a pair of covers, “Delta Lady” by Leon Russell and a 33+ minute “Mountain Jam” for the ages.Trey handled the lead vocals for “Delta Lady”, a tune that Anastasio’s Trey Anastasio Band debuted during the spring for their own tour and that has been in Tedeschi Trucks Band’s rotation in recent years. However, the crowning jewel of the collaboration was Anastasio and Tedeschi Trucks Band’s awe-inspiring cover of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Mountain Jam”, marking the first time Trucks and Anastasio have collaborated since with the Allman Brothers Band at the 2014 Wanee.With the recent passings of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, the ABB song was an especially poignant choice. It was also the debut version from Tedeschi Trucks Band, which soared between various versions of the composition–including early Donovan’s “There Is A Mountain” and inspiration from the Grateful Dead and Herbie Mann renditions, as JamBase noted–with an extended “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” mid-section. Certainly, an interesting take on the beloved instrumental, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummers J.J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell were each given plentiful space for their individual remarks, morphing the performance into a space-shifting presentation of a song with many legs.While Anastasio has been known to hold back in this shared stage space before, he visibly pushed through to match guitar hero Derek Trucks in what became a patiently-timed, glorious dual between the two. Still, it was obvious who the leader on stage was–understandably, and respectfully–as Trey used the experience to appreciatively soak in the glory of the Tedeschi Trucks Band. You can watch complete videos of “Delta Lady” and “Mountain Jam” below, courtesy of Marc Millman:“Delta Lady”“Mountain Jam” Brandon “Taz” Niederauer w/ Ghost-Note | DROM | New York City, NY | 6/15/17Ghost-Note made their way to Manhattan’s East Village for a performance at DROM earlier this summer. Led by Snarky Puppy percussionists Nate Werth and Robert “Sput” Searight and featuring rotating cast of talented players like MonoNeon (Prince), Jonathan Mones, Sly5thave, Dominique Taplin, Nick Werth, Alvin Ford Jr., A.J. Brown, and more, the avant-garde jazz-funk outfit makes a sonic statement every time they take the stage. During the New York show, Ghost-Note welcomed a special guest: young guitar phenom Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, fresh off a performance of School of Rock: The Musical on Broadway.The diminutive ax-slinger lent his impressive chops to three songs, as the band made the most of their chance to have the prodigious talent onstage with them. In the video below from the middle of the 3-song segment, Sput speaks about having Taz–who he refers to as “The Grown Man”–sit in: “When we bring it all the waydown and play real soft and funky…So since we got him onstage, we might as well give him another solo right? So Taz, I want you to take your time, man. Just take your time and play from your heart, brother.”Taz responded to Sput’s call with a delicately melodic solo over a billowing, funky back-beat that built to a high-voltage peak with Brandon intently enthralled throughout–to the audible delight of an ecstatic crowd. Check out video of the collaboration via MonoNeon below. See you in 2018!last_img read more

County Officials Approve Permit For 2-Day Dead & Company Festival In Wyoming

first_imgToday, Jackson Hole News & Guide broke the news that the Board of Teton County Commissioners have unanimously approved a permit that would allow Dead & Company to host a two-day festival at Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch in the summer during a special meeting called for the application’s review. Late last month, James Deighan, owner of Highline Sports and Entertainment, filed the approved application for the permit for the two-day concert that would take place in South Park, WY, on August 18th and 19th. In his application, Deighan estimated that 15,000 – 20,000 people would attend.However, as noted by Jackson Hole News & Guide, while the permit was approved, the commissioners green-lighted the festival only with the caveat that Highline Sports and Entertainment submit a detailed security and traffic plan by April 1st as well other mitigation plans by May 1st. Other conditions for the festival’s approval included that the county staff’s daily workload would not be “unduly impacted by planning for the event.” The board also noted that, rather than the proposed end time of 10 p.m. each night, they were interested in the music ending at 9 p.m., and that they’d like to make sure that locals have prioritized access to tickets.However, while the Dead & Company festival has secured the necessary permits from the county, this does not mean that the concert is guaranteed to happen. At the initial hearing, Deighan noted, “The only caveat is we are up against a little bit of time…to properly plan this event and execute it in the proper fashion that not only the town deserves but the event itself as well.” Today, Deighan explained to Jackson Hole News & Guide ahead of the county’s special meeting to approve the permit, “If in fact we do move forward today as a group, that doesn’t mean we’re hitting the go button.”last_img read more

Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of ‘A Go Go’ In Denver

first_imgLast night, John Medeski, John Scofield, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood came together for the first of two nights at Denver’s Ogden Theatre, marking the band’s first performance since their headlining performances on this year’s Jam Cruise. The quartet of jazz legends has been celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first collaborative album, A Go Go, which was released on April 7th, 1998, and followed up by 2006’s Out Louder, 2011’s In Case The World Changes Its Mind, and 2014’s Juice.For their Friday performance, Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood offered up a primarily groove-centric show, shying away from some of the more spacey and ambient tunes that Medeski, Martin & Wood are known for in favor of more danceable and upbeat numbers. For much of the show, Scofield took command on guitar, with the remaining musicians on stage giving him ample space to lead songs. As John Medeski explained to Live For Live Music in a recent interview:When [Medeski, Martin & Wood is] playing with John, as a trio, it gives us the opportunity to play the rhythm section, and we get to play together in a different way. When it’s the three of us alone, it’s this organism creating music as a whole. When we have John, we can be the backup band while he’s soloing and that gives us the opportunity to do a totally different thing.However, that’s not to say that Medeski, Martin & Wood merely took on the role of a “traditional” backing band; rather, all the musicians on stage gracefully weaved through solos and leads, highlighting the two decades-plus experience they have working with one another and cultivating a near-psychic ability to read one another.The show started with “Sham Time” off the quartet’s most recent studio album, Juice. Medeski led in the main theme of the tune, with Scofield at first offering tasteful accents. The funk-jazz fusion tune was a feel-good and upbeat opener, with Scofield truly unleashing for the first time of the night ahead of a quick drum break down offered by Billy Martin and slide-heavy solo from Chris Wood on the upright bass. The next tune, the namesake of the band’s first album together, saw the group taking their time, and the smooth tone of the song was beautifully contrasted by percussive interludes led by Martin, and later Medeski.Moving on, Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood offered up their first cover of the night, a high-energy and dynamic reworking of The Doors’ perennial classic, “Light My Fire”. The group followed up “Light My Fire” with A Go Go‘s “Chicken Dog”, which saw Scofield laying out one of his most reaching and climactic guitar solos of the first set. This tune also allowed Chris Wood to step forward, first with some interesting interplay between him and Medeski and later, toward the song’s triumphant close, with Martin and him riffing off one another.  As the first set wound to its close and technicians worked on an issue that arose with Chris Wood’s speakers, the band offered up a more exploratory and aggressive interlude, which showcased the full breadth of the quartet’s varying sounds. From this, a groove slowly emerged, and eventually, Martin’s propulsive beat led the song into a cascading and slinky portion that took on an almost Latin feel.The band contrasted this delightfully exploratory jam with Juice‘s “Juicy Lucy”, whose main riff draws from the traditional early rock and roll sounds of the 1960’s. While the former jam was avant-garde at points, this return to a widely familiar form re-grounded the performance before the band launched into “Helium” led in by a Billy Martin solo. Slowly adding Medeski and then Wood, who busted out some of his infamous dance moves, the rollicking rendition of “Helium” was made all the finer by the song’s discordant bridge, triumphant resolution, and Scofield’s thoughtful and decisive solo that closed out the first set.After departing the stage for set break, the four all-star musicians returned for set two with Martin leading the way with an opening drum solo to kick off “Chank”. Following the traditional funk-fusion number that saw a fiery Scofield solo right off the bat, the band moved into a groovy rendition of A Go Go‘s “Boozer”. One of the main highlights of the show was Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood’s rendition of “Deadzy”. Intentional and eerie throughout, the song and its extended jam eventually built to a satisfying resolution with a shred-heavy solo from Scofield.While appropriately the show focused on the band’s original catalog, up next were two crowd-pleasing covers, first Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say” followed by Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”. “What’d I Say” tapped into the song’s old-school rock vibe, with Scofield given free reign of the melody and eventually leading an energetic call and response with the crowd. After the song’s huge close led in by a patient Scofield solo, the band dropped immediately into a dubby rendition of “Sunshine Of Your Love” (which appears on 2014’s Juice), which was used as a jump-off point for a wild jam. Medeski was a highlight of the rendition, with the pianist leading a brief, glitchy interlude before the band doubled down on the reggae feel of the song, as well as performing a stand-out solo on the melodica.Finally, as the show wound to its close, Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood closed out the second set with crowd-favorite A Go Go tune, “Hottentot”. The groove-heavy song was another highlight of the show, with Scofield’s powerful guitar leading the song from start to finish. The respective members of the group were all given their moments to stand out during the number before the song’s tight jam closed out the frame in full. Coming back for an encore, the group tapped into the spirit of New Orleans with “Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing”, a number off Out Louder, making for a feel-good end to the show.Setlist: Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 3/30/2018Set One: Sham Time, A Go Go, Light My Fire, Chicken Dog, Tubes, Juicy Lucy, HeliumSet Two: Chank, Boozer, Tube, Deadzy/Shuffle, What’d I Say, Sunshine Of Your Love, HottentotEncore: Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thinglast_img read more

first_img[Video: Brosef Wilson]Other highlights included the band’s energized, fan-favorite rendition of “Tell The Truth” early on during the show, which followed the band’s opening numbers of “Anyhow” and “I Want More”, as well as the group’s set-closing “Whipping Post”. The latter, “Whipping Post”, came out of the group’s standout rendition of “The Storm”, and was not initially included on the setlist for the night.“Tell The Truth” Load remaining images Photo: Vic Brazen [Video: Brosef Wilson]You can check out photos from last night’s show below, courtesy of Vic Brazen.Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion | Gilford, NH | 7/7/2018Set: Anyhow, I Want More, Ball and Chain, Tell The Truth, Just As Strange, Down in the Flood, It’s So Heavy, Idle Wind, Rollin’ & Tumblin’, More & More, The Storm, Whipping PostEncore: Going Going Gone, Let’s Go Get Stoned, Always, Ain’t Nothing Wrong, Work To Do, Thespian Espionage, Your Last SongTedeschi Trucks Band | Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion | Gilford, NH | 7/7/2018 | Photo: Vic Brazen Tedeschi Trucks Band continued their 2018 Wheels of Soul tour on Saturday night, stopping in Gilford, New Hampshire for a performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

Most notably, the band opened their encore with the “Going, Going, Gone” cover—a tune off 1974’s Planet Waves, which was likely also used as a tribute to the late Gregg Allman, who covered the song on his final album, Southern Blood.“Going, Going, Gone”last_img read more
