Here’s Vulfpeck’s video premiere for the album, “Funky Duck,” with vocalist Antwaun Stanley. Always great to get some new Vulfpeck in the mix. Thrill of the Arts is available today...

Bass Transcription: Joe Dart’s Bass Line on Vulfpeck’s “Beastly”

“Beastly” is the opening track from Vulfpeck’s first EP Mit Peck. I’ve loved this piece since I first heard it and it’s been on my “transcribe list” for a while now. Fortunately, the isolated bass track cropped a while back, making the task of transcribing it a little easier.

Vulfpeck: Poinciana

It’s always a good day when Vulfpeck sends us a new video. The creative quartet decided to tackle the classic standard “Poinciana” with some influences and a twist. “[It’s a] minimal rendition,” Jack Stratton tells us. “The Four Freshmen were one of the first vocal groups to not sing the root in the harmony. All it needs is someone holding...

Vulfpeck: Christmas in L.A.

Vulfpeck is one of our favorite bands around here. So when Jack Stratton emailed me there was a Christmas video, I couldn’t wait to share it. “This song follows true Dartonian Physics,” Jack shared, referencing Vulfpeck bassist Joe Dart. “Meaning, groove for two minutes and then freak out during the last 1/8th of the song.” As if that wasn’t enough,...

Vulfpeck: First Place

If you’ve been enjoying Vulpeck’s latest album, Fugue State*, I bet you’ll really enjoy watching the guys recording the album too. “First Place” is their fourth video released in support of the album. The tune was written by the multi-talented Jack Stratton, who plays piano on the track. As always, Joe Dart is laying it down on bass, with some...

Vulfpeck released their next video from Fugue State, and this one is the terrific title track from that album. By now you know the guys, starting with our hero, Joe Dart on bass, with Jack Stratton on drums, Woody Goss on Wurlitzer (and the composer) and Theo Katzman on guitar. These guys just bring it, every time.

Vulfpeck: Sky Mall

Vulfpeck’s Jack Stratton sent me the latest video by the band, from their new album, Fugue State. The tune, written by Jack, is anchored as always by bassist Joe Dart. Jack shared this: “Somewhat funny backstory: When we did the Amazon rental (again, don’t try this at home) we ordered the wrong scale flat wound Thomastik strings. So we’re looking...

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...

Vulfpeck: A Walk to Remember

We hear from a lot of readers who say they discovered Vulfpeck thanks to No Treble sharing their awesome videos. And we’ve said it before – all of Vulfpeck’s members are stellar musicians. But it is bassist Joe Dart who really knocks us out every time we hear one of their tunes. The guys in Vulfpeck surely know what a...
