SONG OF THE DAY The Olympians – Sirens of Jupiter

a3392801707_10Today’s funky, fresh and soulful bundle of instrumental joy is the lead single from Daptone’s new super band, The Olympians.

Led by Toby Pazner (Lee Fields & The Expressions, El Michels Affair), this NYC-based band are a product of a fever dream Pazner experienced in Greece.

The story, as described on his Bandcamp page, goes like this: After repeatedly being visited by a strange messenger in his dreams while on tour in the islands of Greece, Toby Pazner became consumed with a vision to tell the stories of The Olympians through music

Following this vision he returned to New York and began to round-up a selection of musicians who would later become, The Olympians.

The band consists of, Thomas Brenneck (Menahan Street Band, Budos Band, Charles Bradley), Dave Guy (Tonight Show Band, The Dap-Kings,) Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields, El Michels Affair,) Nicholas Movshon (The Arcs, Lee Fields, El Michels Affair,)  Homer Steinweiss (The Dap-Kings, The Arcs), Michael Leonhart (Musical Director for Steely Dan, David Byrne), Neal Sugarman  (The Dap-Kings, Sugarman 3 & one of the founders of Daptone), Aaron Johnson (Antibalas, El Michels Affair), Evan Pazner (Lee Fields), and of course the Olympian champian, Pazner.

With their debut album due out this October, first single ‘Sirens of Jupiter’ is now ready and waiting to escort you on a cosmic, soul-filled instrumental journey…all you have to do is step on board and check in and check it out above.
