I talked about New.Body.Electric on Radio West last week, and this is the sort of band that fits my definition of “emerging” to a tee. In case you missed it this week, I've highlighted L'anarchiste, Folk Hogan, Lady Murasaki and The Awful Truth so far -- more to come.
This four-piece has a big, hard-hitting sound that can totter the line between The Meters funk and roots-dub reggae. Yet, it’s so simple a caveman could get his groove on to it.
With only four songs recorded for the Let’s Hang it Like This EP -- be sure to listen to “Funky Shake” and “Dirty Girlz” -- I’m really curious what they can come up with over the summer. Either way, go check them out live, and I’m sure your hips won’t lie to ya.
