The New Review
Boston based group The New Review bring a raw and powerful energy to their focused style of old-school funk & soul music, with a modern originality. Arrangements by group leader and guitarist Jesse Baskin are intuitive, catchy, and accessible. Powerhouse lead vocalist Aubrey Haddard, rounded as a velvety vocal trio with Sally Rose and keyboardist Pat Carr, ignites any stage in fits of vocal fury and pure-form energy. Heavy-hitting rhythm section Ben Atkind and Van Daalhuyzen showcase an endless and effortless groove on drums and bass respectively, while trumpeter Matt Hull and saxophonist Sebastian Molner easily snap in and out of line with punchy melodies and free form jazz expressionism. With nods to Sharon Jones, vintage Aretha, and the Philadelphia-era David Bowie, The New Review start a party anywhere they play, horns raised, mic's and amps blazing.
Evolfo
Evolfo
What began in 2011 as a basement-party band in the pits of Boston, MA exists today as the Brooklyn garage-soul group, Evolfo. Characterized by a three-piece horn section and a connection that only old friends can share on stage, Evolfo is reputed for their live show. And yet, even with all the glitter and upbeat energy of their performance, there is darkness — an almost imperceptible stain — in the collective soul of Evolfo. Like Robert Johnson or Faust, their past dealings remain shady at times; the status of their eternal soul is debatable. They write from the other side of a vision quest, armed with unsayable truths they work to define through song. Evolfo’s music is not nostalgic, but one could say that they are not afraid to dig into the past for textures that suit the tales they have to tell.
