The Whitefield Brothers

April 26, 2011

So, I’ve been trying to put together a post about this band for, something like weeks now. I think I’ve been toiling over it so long because I really really love this album and wanted to write some cosmic words about its greatness to inspire the masses to dig in and listen. Well, it didn’t happen. Instead …. I pondered and wrote notta. Idiot. I know.  So here goes … written stream of conscious style: My Love Affair with The Whitefield Brothers. Their album Earthology has been out for over a year and I’m just finding it, but, seriously, just glad I stumbled upon. It has become one of my absolute favorite things to groove to. It’s the perfect collective of world, funky, raw soul, afrobeat, hiphop, jazz, and groove. It’s got a real throwback sound, yet lots of fresh newness to it. Never have I come across this perfect of a blend of styles and past/present sounds.  The fact that these are German dudes still blows my mind. Ridiculously relevant. You owe it to yourself to listen up. The best thing I own right now.  You can check out some sample sounds here. So do it.
