Vulfpeck (previously) was " a German version of the Funk Brothers – session musicians who performed most of the instrumentals on the 1960s Motown records [previously]. The idea was to channel that era of the live rhythm section."

On August 26th Vulfpeck released their fourth record, Fugue State (other three: Mit Peck, Vollmilch, My First Car).

Vocalist Antwaun Stanley tells the story in 1612.

Needs more hi hat.

Listened to some of the other tracks linked, though, and was glad to find that actual drums are in use. These guys are performing a noble public service, and I commend them.

The "previously" is tltiled "Imagine the Ramones led by John Cage and managed by Andy Warhol" - so, the Velvet Underground then?

Thanks for the post, and man do I LOVE these guys since I heard them on an episode of WeFunk Radio (which probably deserves a post of its own when I can get to it) a few years back.

I also love how they leave interesting studio background noise in the back of some of their tracks. This is an extreme example but there's a lot more subtle ones...
