Vulfpeck: 1612

Vulfpeck is back with a brand new album, Fugue State – and it is killer.

This video features the second track on the album, “1612”. Joe Dart is laying down the killer groove as usual, and singer Antwaun Stanley makes a return appearance. Jack Stratton is on guitar (and composed the tune), Theo Katzman is on drums and Woody Goss is on the wurlitzer

Jack sent me the details:

“Joe used a MusicMan Sterling with Thomastik Flats thanks to Amazon Prime’s rental program. Don’t try that at home. I doubled the bassline on bridge-pickup palm-muted Strat. All that plus the kick drum makes a very punchy bassline. The instrumental is a nod to Wardell Quezergue who wrote some of my favorite basslines like ‘Mr. Big Stuff’ and ‘Groove Me’. His basslines are secretly the hook.”

Fugue State is available from Vulpeck’s Bandcamp page and will soon be available on iTunes.

    This is the dopest crap EVER. I forgot how killer these cats are. I’m going to have to watch/listen to this again to find out what 1612 is; but I DIG!!! It’s all about groove and melody for me. Great stuff!

  7. When I listen to this song I turn into Baloo the Bear.
