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.
Their latest EP, Something Evil gathers together an appealing collection of both instrumental and vocal-based songs with fitting titles such as Evil Minds (great opening track), Night Terrors and Fear, fusing together male/female vocal leads. 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.
