Something for Spring from CSC Funk Band
Here’s a couple of cool tracks to put some spring in your step. Brooklyn’s CSC Funk Band played a Guru tribute last year which inspired them to record an instrumental single that builds on vintage Gang Starr beats while adding an original bite and edge. The A-side, A Little Weight is a hip-hop joint with jaunty violin as the lead instrument – when’s the last time you heard that? There are jazz groups who do stuff like that – Zach Brock’s trio comes to mind – but this is definitely something different. The B-side, A Little Planet is trippier and rocks harder, with CSC’s trademark organic groove. A limited vinyl pressing is available from Electric Cowbell and of course through your favorite independent record store.
