Funk You Gets Supernaturally Grooving On Their Debut Album, Apparitions [Premiere]

first_imgJam out with the album, and follow along with our own review of the release below:From the very first blast of the opening track, “Resolution,” the listener is pulled in by the invitingly familiar blast of horn laden soulful funk that greets them like a welcoming friend. As is often the case with funk, the lyrics speak to the mind with a higher purpose, calling for equality and compassion while the music itself speaks to a more physical part of the body, urging boogie time on the floor. The next steps on the band’s musical journey around the world finds a fiery guitar lead and gypsy-esque tilt-a-whirl feel rolls around the sonic landscape in the song “Ghost For Me,” rising to an organ break that would fit in the most majestic cathedrals ever constructed.The musical travelogue continues as Funk You takes you “Drifting” through a lazy, calypso infused intimate journey between two lovers. When the clapping hands and popping horns burst joyously into a wild series of  flourishes there’s a call to the dance floor that’s practically irresistible. With their musical bonafides already impeccably established, Funk You starts to build upon the many facets they’ve displayed by delivering one of the best songs of the disc, “She’s So High.” The band crafts a powerful, mature and sultry song that commands attention. Through dramatic tempo shifts that go from the depths of a sexy piano and sax interlude to brash brass punctuating a passionate call and response between Hamilton and an enticing guest singer distill the very essence of attraction and seduction into sonic form.Capable of creating wide open spaces to let concepts and sounds stretch out as easily as a runaway locomotive, Funk You shows great insight in how to use a concept without overusing it.  Miller’s guitar work has an element of the majestic to it in his solos for songs like “Your Soul,” but he regularly pulls back to sparse leads and funky rhythm sections. Achingly simple piano leads alternate with sky high organ fills from Foster, while Gavin Hamilton imparts the same amount of evocative emotional resonance in everything from a whisper to a shout. More impressive than what they can do separately, it’s when the band moves as one, united seamlessly in motion, whatever the pace, that moves them above and beyond what music fans have come to expect from funk based bands.On the album’s closing track, “Ghost For You,” the band keeps the paranormal theme that has pervaded Apparitions’ compositions lyrically, connecting the nature of haunting to an obsession in a very insightful manner.  All the most engaging elements are called back for one last hurrah, as “Ghost For You” rises and falls in ever shifting ways, like an infinite variety of waves crashing against the shore of consciousness. The inevitability of the manic acceleration of the song’s finale was preordained by the amazing momentum built up throughout the piece, and the silence in the moments after the last note fades has a very real edge of sorrow that such an enjoyable ride is finished.With Apparitions, Funk You has moved well beyond any expectations the music world had set for them, promising much for them in the years to come. They’ve given the world a clutch of songs that elevates the spirit and feeds the soul, while rarely not also giving the toes something to tap along with. Though it’s hard to predict the future, even with the help of some Apparitions, if the effort and talent shown on this album is any indication, Funk You will be casting inescapable incantations for many years to come.Apparitions is due out April 22nd, and you can find more information about the band on their official website. The group also has some exciting appearances coming up soon, including a Sweetwater 420 Festival after party/album release show on April 22nd, and a performance at the fest proper on April 23rd.Also, don’t miss this funky bunch when they hit the Augusta Common to open up for the James Brown Band, as part of the James Brown Birthday Bash on May 3rd. With an amazing ensemble featuring players from Brown’s actual band, as well as special guest spots from haron Jones, George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Ty Taylor (Vintage Trouble), Chris Rob (Nasty Delicious), Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), and more, this is one night that should not be missed!Tickets and more information can be found here.Check out the credits for the album below: Funk You has shared their debut album, Apparitions, showing off an amazing confidence and impressive diversity from this Augusta, GA based collective. The dynamics that singer Gavin Hamilton, guitarist Evan Miller, keyboardist Will Foster and the rest of the band display on the album is truly marvelous. Over the course of the eleven tracks, the band shows such seemingly effortless competence in so many distinct styles that you start to wonder if they have a few extra members hiding behind a curtain somewhere.The band has generously offered us a full stream of the album to share with you funkophiles of the world, so tune in below:last_img read more

Is old fashioned marketing still in fashion?

first_imgTraditional Marketing is dying. Or so it’s been said. But is it really? There has been much debate on the topic and while it cannot be denied that many traditional marketing channels have seen dramatic decreases, it doesn’t necessarily mean the audience for these mediums has disappeared.Digital and traditional marketing can give your members a unique experience in their own ways. Traditional marketing, however, offers something that digital marketing cannot – engagement of more than two senses. And for credit unions who are all about the member experience, and for the consumer who wants to be drawn in by an experience when they come in contact with your brand, it becomes hard to completely dismiss traditional efforts when devising your marketing plan.Let’s take a look at what some traditional marketing channels still can offer:Direct MailEveryone, for the most part, still receives direct mail. It’s a great way to get your message directly into the hands of potential members. It’s also relatively inexpensive and still proves to be highly effective. And, despite all the “junk mail” we think we get, direct mail often has fewer distractions than the increasingly cluttered online ad space. Instead of competing for attention with social media, video, and other online ads, use those channels to support your direct mail efforts with keywords, sponsored social media posts and by creating content that is interesting and will engage your target audience when they search for you online. Make it easy for them by always including your website and a call to action for other ways they can engage with you online, for instance “Visit us on Facebook for more, etc…TV Television is still one of the most effective marketing tools. Most people still have cable or satellite TV, and many still watch live TV, meaning they watch television commercials. TV is also a great way to reach a specific market. It is a bit more expensive, but many credit unions have found TV to be a profitable means of marketing and it’s a great means to keep you top of mind with target audiences.BillboardsAnother great marketing method is through large billboards. Not only are they hard to miss, advertising on a billboard allows you to market your products or brand on a large scale. When placed in strategic areas and by making them memorable with a clever tagline or attention-grabbing image, billboards leave an impression, whether the consumer realizes it or not.Radio AdsLike television, commercial radio is still thriving. Marketing products and services on radio through commercials or other means can still be effective even in this age of satellite radio and online streaming services. Most commuters still listen to the radio to and from work. And like billboards, with a catchy jingle or fun script, radio adverting leaves an impression. And, for those who claim to only listen to “commercial-free” satellite radio or streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, and even YouTube, there are still advertising opportunities within those mediums giving you a chance to reach potential members through both traditional radio and streaming radio.Bottom line: traditional marketing can still work in our increasingly digital world. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. The most comprehensive marketing strategies involve the best of both worlds in fact. Your members’ overall experience with your brand should be part of story that involves multiple touch points within digital and traditional media. After all, your existing members were more than likely first introduced to you through direct mail, print ads, billboards or other traditional marketing efforts. These are now the perfect targets for your “untraditional” efforts moving forward. 63SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jeff Kjoller Jeff has extensive experience in branding, art direction and graphic design, having served employers and clients in a creative capacity for more than twenty-five years.
