Honeycut’s Future Funk

Honeycut has been funking up the CD player in our house with great frequency ever since their debut The Day I Turned to Glass came out on Bay Area indie hip hop label Quannum Projects (and made my Best of 2006 list). With Bart Davenport (Loved Ones, the Kinetics, Persephones Bees) on vocals, RV Salters (Femi Kuti, Lifesavas, Lateef &The Chief, DJ Mehdi, Lyrics Born, Blackalicious) playing keys and Tony Sevener tapping a souped-up drum machine they create a truly unique sound from an blend of styles as diverse as soul, funk, techno, jazz, pop, ambient, bossa nova and rock. When my nine year old wants to hear it more than Green Day you know they’re killin’ it.

I’ve been getting a little too video happy lately but this short little documentary now playing at Current TV is such a good introduction to one of my favorite local bands I had to spread the word.

Two of my favorite tracks from The Day I Turned to Glass:

Crowded Avenue
Exodus Honey

Honeycut are tearing up the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Friday, March 7 with Sugar & Gold (another fantastic local band) and Her Grace The Duchess.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
