    先日発表された『Get Lucky (Daft Punk Jazz Cover)』も、Single『The Lottery』も話題の中、The Stepkids待望の2ndアルバム『Troubadour』がVinylでも登場!!

    既にご存知の通り、Alicia KeysやLarlyn Hillなどのバックバンド・メンバーとして活躍してきた、言わば筋金入りのベテラン・ミュージシャン揃いの3人組=The Stepkids。前作は『ネオ・フラワー(ヒッピー)・サウンドの異端児』と称されるサウンドでしたが、今回はよりジャズ、フュージョン色を濃くした内容!!

    まるでSteely Danを彷彿させるクールなグルー「Moving Pictures」。などなど彼らのサウンドの懐の広さと、奥の深さを思い知らされる良曲が連発です!!

    繊細なプロダクション、アレンジ、、、確実に前作越えを果たしているのではないでしょうか!!!

    The Stepkids are a trio who came together in 2009 after a decade of working in bands with some of the industry's biggest names, creating a unique brand of modern psychedelic soul. The Bridgeport CT based band-- Jeff Gitelman (guitar, vocal), Dan Edinberg (bass, keys, voc) and Tim Walsh (drums, voc)-- gleefully blend classic jazz, R&B, funk, 70s pop/rock and countless other genres and styles.

    The release of their 2011 self-titled debut album and the praise for their visually psychedelic live show led to tours with Kimbra, Mayer Hawthorne, Grace Potter, Mates of State and The Horrors. The result of the experience gained and lessons learned since the release of The Stepkids can be heard throughout new album Troubadour, out September 10 on Stones Throw Records.

    The album features “Sweet Salvation,” released as a single and video in late 2012; “Moving Pictures,” performed by the band on NBC’s Last Call With Carson Daly last fall; and “The Art of Forgetting”performed recently as part of the “In The Red Bull Studio” series. RollingStone.com just premiered new single “The Lottery” a song that Gitelman describes as being about “the gamble of different sides of life: The gamble of love, the gamble of business, and the general risk of following your heart.”

    The Stepkids will continue to bring their music to stages across North America including upcoming performances at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Electric Forest Festival and Celebrate Brooklyn! at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, NY. The band also recently launched a series of jazzy covers of pop songs from the likes of Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and one of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”

    “I really believe that we still haven’t discovered some of our most exciting stuff,” enthuses Gitelman. “Everybody is so deep musically, there are whole sides of us we haven’t really explored yet.”

        再入荷!!

        大推薦!!
        フリーミックス「People Make The World Go Round (Inspiration Information Mixtape)」も最高!!

        本作にも収録されている先行7inch「Every Body Love The Sunshine」でも話題を集めた、フランスのトラックメイカーMedlineによる、ヒップ・ホップのサンプル・ソース等で馴染みのジャズファンクの名曲の数々のカヴァーを収めたフル・アルバム!!

        鮮やかな高揚が際立つ「A New Day」に始まり、アルバムタイトルにもなっており、Innerzone Orc.のカヴァー等でもお馴染みのStylistisc「People Make The World Go Round」のパーカッシヴなジャズ/ソウル的カヴァー、Yusef Lateefでお馴染みのモーダル〜スピリチュアル「Ebonees」のYNQを思わせるカヴァー、惜しくも他界したばかりのDonald Byrdの「Wind Parade」カヴァー、どこかメローネスを讃えた形で解釈されるHeat Bro「Smilling Billy Suite」、どこかエキゾチックな雰囲気を感じさせる「Red Clay」、そしてダンサンブルでグルーヴィーな「Expansions」と、文句無しに素晴しい作品に。

        これは、パワープッシュさせて頂きますよ!!

        Medline is a musician, producer and DJ from Rennes, France with roots in Chile. Born Orlando Diaz Corvalan, Medline calls his music brown music - a mix of afro, latin, funk and jazz with a hip-hop state of mind.

        With his debut album "People Make The World Go Round" the French producer is taking us on a trip down memory lane by paying tribute to the jazz funk masters who's music shaped the musical DNA of hip-hop. From Roy Ayers and Lonnie Liston Smith to Freddie Hubbard and the Heath Brothers. Songs like "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "Red Clay" or "Smilin' Billy Suite" have been a staple amongst hip-hop and jazz fans alike for a long time. But the album is more than a sample song-book of 90ties rap. Medline reinterpretates the songs in his very own way. A beatmaker by trade, Medline acts as a one man orchestra playing every instrument himself. with a strong focus on the flute. Think Herbie Mann joins Yesterdays New Quintett with a headnod towards broken beat. On three songs he is joined by Roni Alkekengi who's sultry vocals (and French accent) are a perfect match.
