We were blowing down some piffery last night prior to the fam over at All Good Recs putting us on to Fort Smith (AR) based duo RECESS. Made up of guitarist/producer Drew Birch and keyboardist/producer Ian Gilley, RECESS channels everything from jazz to funk to EDM to hip-hop.
Their debut project, Brothel Gospel, “weave(s) whirling melodies and cranial chord structures into powerful grooves that create a unique listening experience and make for an eccentric live performance”. In other words, their music is a trip and you should grab tickets to their next show.
“Cuttin’ Class” was the piece of content that grabbed our attention. Glossy guitar, swanky bass lines, slapping synthesizers and a whole lot of other mind warping elements blend together for some Future Funk from a neighboring galaxy.
