One Time Weekend is a funky carnival of sounds too good to pass up, plays BRYAC Black Rock 06.28

Letting its reggae and funk influences lead the way, the group from Collinsville, CT known as One Time Weekend has crafted a record you can move to. Weekend at the Circus is jam-packed with hip electric guitar solos, fun changes in tempo, rapid-fire vocals, and piano notes that shine among the carnival of sounds. The lead vocal melodies on tracks like “Gandalf” and “Cavity” have the magnetism of great orators like Sublime’s Bradley James Nowell or Gym Class Heroes’ Travie McCoy; the instruments move the party along with groovy basslines to spare. One Time Weekend’s summer tour continues with a stop at BRYAC Black Rock in Bridgeport, CT on June 28th. We are streaming “Cavity” below for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar

   

Album Premiere: Radio Free Honduras "Mis Sueños"

We are proud to be able to premiere the new album, Mis Sueños, from Radio Free Honduras.

The album, their first in five years, finds guitarist and lead vocalist Charlie Baran and Musical Director and Guitarist Dan Abu-Absi at the top of their collaborative game. The goal of the group has always been to spotlight the talent, charm, and songs of Baran and this album does that perfectly.

You can help the band celebrate the release of the new album on June 28th at Sleeping Village with ÉSSO and Kaleta & Super Yamba Band.

Oakland's Makeunder (aka Hamilton Ulmer) just released another single off forthcoming album Pale Cicada and it's a force of soul and funk, Prince-esq vocals and gyrating horns and baselines. There's so much going on in track "In Between My Dead-End Jobs" that you've got to give it a couple listens. The full album comes out June 28 on Good Eye Records and it's a fun experience of songs that are full of passion and positivity, despite messages full of struggles and loss. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

About Time debuts intoxicating jazz-fusion record, plays Radio Bean 06.30

The rich history of jazz and funk's marriage is in good hands thanks to groups like About Time, a six-piece band that knows how to get down. The upbeat songs of the Vermont-based group flash some elegant chord progressions and right down sticky basslines. The groovy rhythms and harmonica solos that decorate the tracks of the band's latest record I Don't Think I Belong Here mix well with smooth saxophone arrangements and the playful vocals of Lauren Kelley and Stephanie Jacobs. The group is having fun in this debut record: the album has an experimental feel to it with the main ingredients of jazz, funk, blues, and rock measured beautifully for a compelling listening experience. About Time will be performing at Radio Bean in Burlington, VT on June 30th in promotion of the new record. We have the group's superbly engaging song "Rose Colored Glasses" streaming below. - Rene Cobar
