Jahman Brahman Shares Funky New Single “Hyperion Vs. Cotahuasi” Ahead Of New Album [Premiere]

first_imgIt’s been a wild ride for Asheville-based roots band Jahman Brahman over the last couple of years, as the band lost two members and spent time building things back up with new musicians. Once they felt comfortable enough, the band zipped into the studio to record a new album, titled Choose Your Channel, their first full-length effort since 2010.Choose Your Channel has something for everyone, capturing the essence of the whole band as well as the spirit of each of its members. The rich textures come forward from the band’s soulful songwriting, as the band’s ten years together have proven to create a mature and distinguished sound. The new album is an aural journey for the senses, and the band consistently proves themselves in the live setting as well. We love the Jahman Brahman groove, and you can catch a digital download of the new album here.In honor of Choose Your Channel, we’re delighted to premiere a stream of the first single, “Hyperion vs. Cotahuasi.” Featuring Derrick Lee Johnson of Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, the upbeat new single is sure to put a smile on your face! Tune in below.Says drummer/vocalist Chuck Knott, “A few years back, I decided to write a funk tune while trying to incorporate other musical elements; odd chord changes, and key changes in the arrangement. I opted for James Brown-esque lyrics to invoke the kind of phonetic vocal stabs that don’t necessarily need to bear much weight as far as subject matter goes. If I remember correctly, it went something along the lines of “My baby wears a low cut shirt, looks so good it makes me hurt. My baby dances on stage all the time, don’t care who’s watching, she don’t mind.” When I brought it to the table, the band suggested trying for a little more substance in the lyrics… so, naturally, I went “over the top and off the deep end” with metaphors, thus landing on a battlefield between the world’s tallest tree and deepest valley: Hyperion vs. Cotahuasi.Life has extreme highs and lows; that’s no groundbreaking thought, but if you surround yourself with the right people and energy, those peaks and valleys are easier to traverse, and are what moves you forward. A creek or landscape can maintain a uniformness about it for long periods of time and then in the flash of an epic storm, everything’s different. It’s how you come out on the other side that matters… ’til the next storm or meteor shower. Smack on some sweet hornage from Derrick Lee Johnson (Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band) and I think we’ve executed a pretty gnarly journey of a song.At the end of the day, as important as all the elements that brought us to this point are, when we are at a club or festival and everyone’s throwing down and pushing the music & energy along with us, that’s the payoff and fruition of the journey that brought us here.”Jahman Brahman will also be celebrating their new album with an album release party on January 21st, playing the Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC with funk group Backup Planet.

Prophets Of Rage Release New Single, “Living On The 110”

first_imgJust over a year ago, Prophets of Rage–a politically-charged supergroup comprised of Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy, and B-Real of Cypress Hill–burst into existence with an angry bang. The outfit, described by Morello in 2016 as “an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit,” came together for a string of summer amphitheater shows following their widely buzzed-about maiden shows in LA and Brooklyn featuring a mix of material by RATM, Pubblic Enemy, and Cypress Hill. The band also promised that they would be recording original music.The promise was fulfilled last month with the Michael Moore-directed “Unfuck the World,” the first single from the upcoming self-titled debut LP Prophets of Rage–due out September 15. Today, the super group releases the second single, “Living on the 110.”About the song, Morello said in a statement,”‘Living on the 110’ is a song that speaks to the issue of homelessness,” according to Rolling Stone. “The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people. Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times.”Prophets Of Rage TracklistRadical EyesUnfuck The WorldLegalize MeLiving On The 110The CounteroffensiveHail To The ChiefTake Me HigherStrength In NumbersFired A ShotWho Owns WhoHands UpSmashitlast_img read more

The Simpsons Are Going To New Orleans For Jazz Fest

first_imgAerosmith, Jack White, David Byrne, Beck, Jimmy Buffet, Lionel Richie, Sheryl Crow and many more are scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Jazz Fest & Heritage Festival, but they won’t be the only stars at this year’s celebration. At least one other group of American icons is heading to the Crescent City later this month: The Simpsons.NOLA.com reports that the long-running animated comedy series’ titular family will take a detour to New Orleans when the forthcoming episode “Lisa Gets The Blues” airs on Sunday, April 22nd. Fans of the city’s music scene will be in for a treat, as Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is slated to make a guest appearance during the episode.A synopsis for “Lisa Gets The Blues” reads:When the Simpsons’ flight to Gainesville gets re-routed to New Orleans, Lisa is forced to face her failures, and regain her confidence as a jazz musician. Meanwhile, Bart is intrigued by the voodoo in Louisiana, and Homer is intrigued by the drinking.As you can see, it sounds like most members of The Simpsons clan will have their work cut out for them in the Big Easy. And if Marge gets shortchanged, it’s probably because she was already the subject of The Simpsons’ greatest—well, the show’s only—New Orleans-themed episode, 1992’s “A Streetcar Named Marge”. If that classic from the show’s heyday is any indication, The Simpsons’ won’t pull any punches when it comes to satirizing the birthplace of jazz, a place they once called a “putrid, brackish, maggoty, foul” city akin to Sodom and Gomorrah. The Simpsons – “New Orleans” (from A Streetcar Named Marge)Live for Live Music will also be in New Orleans for Jazz Fest, where we’ll be putting on a series of after shows and daze between shows at clubs across town. You can check out our late night guide for a comprehensive list of what New Orleans has to offer during Jazz Fest, and you can take a look at our own late night calendar below.last_img read more
