SONG OF THE DAY Ghost Funk Orchestra – What Now

This band’s title, Ghost Funk Orchestra is interesting enough in itself, but if you connect the substance of sound with the style of name, what you get is a very dynamic blend of DIY psychedelic soul, latin funk/jazz, hip hop and surf.

Ghost Funk Orchestra is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based Seth Applebaum and a collective consisting of nine band members.  As a group they only started performing together live in the last few months which, considering how consistently packed-out all of their shows have been, is an impressive feat.

Today’s track is a haunting instrumental with chunky beats and an eerie, hypnotic melody; easy on the ears, think David Lynch meets Portishead!  Check it out above.

Something Evil was released just over a week ago, listen/purchase the whole EP from here.
