Dylan Sullivan It's like the best Funk-Pop-Jazz stir fry you've ever had. Addictive melodies will leave you in withdrawal after their moments pass as lovely vocals cool that easing sensation as you lust for more. That and some great horn solos make for an enticing album and one of my favorite releases of 2015. Favorite track: Sun Spat.

Didrik Amadeus Lindsholm Heard Sun Spat once and had to buy it right away! It was so worth the wait of 2 months before it was released. Real good vibes on this one :) Favorite track: The One.

Dr. Beaf Smashing stuff spiced in grooves and funk where the genre could be described as Pop Brass. Horn section is straight cut top notch quality, the arrangements complex that reflect in some very, very, very tight performances and the rhythm section comes direct from the 70's. It helps the early morning vibes. Look out for the Leslie's chorale and tremolo as it's lovely if you listen hard enough Favorite track: 40 Watt.

about

Presenting EMEFE: a concept album debuting the band's fearless funk-pop music in an unparalleled listening experience.
EMEFE is about breaking through static, the undefinable noise and clutter of everyday life. The album’s concepts were inspired by French author Jacques Lusseyran’s And There Was Light, chronicling a blind man’s realization of light and love in his time during the French resistance movement. After years of creating an original and fearless pop style showcased through their live performances, EMEFE’s signature style is finally exhibited on their new record. EMEFE’s beats are a cross between Fela Kuti and Prince, with vocals reminiscent of the Talking Heads’ candor and the Beach Boys’ lushness... all with a unique pop sensibility. Coming to terms with frustration, anxiety and fear, the album pits complacency against change. The first half of the album (the ‘Tension Suite’) descends into these static emotions without ever escaping them; the second half (the ‘Release Suite’) ascends beyond, into a place of clarity and peace.
