Vulfpeck Releases “My First Car”

Regular No Treble readers will instantly recognize the name “Vulfpeck”, thanks in large part to bassist Joe Dart, who first wowed us with the first video we shared of the group. The studio musicians-turned-band has just released their third album, My First Car. As we mentioned in our exclusive track preview last week, the album’s name was inspired by Dart’s...

Vulpeck is releasing My First Car next week, and we have an exclusive first track from the upcoming album. My First Car is the third album by the group of studio musicians-turned-band. The band of course is anchored by bassist Joe Dart, who served as inspiration for the album’s name. Band leader Jack Stratton shared the story with us: “Dart...

Vulfpeck: Joe Dart’s Isolated Bass Track on “Beastly”

Jack Stratton sent me this video, which made my day. We’re all huge Joe Dart and Vulfpeck fans around here, and so it was a nice treat to hear Joe’s bass line to the tune “Beastly” in all its glory. If you want to hear the original, we have that too. And if you dig that, you’ll also want to...

Vulfpeck: Adrienne & Adrianne Happen to Bossa Nova

Ever since Vulfpeck released Vollmilch about a month or so ago, the tunes have been in constant rotation in my playlist. This video (along with the one for “Outro” we featured three weeks ago) are among my most favorite tracks from the album. Joe Dart, as usual, is head bobbing and laying down some sweet bass on this one, and...

Vulfpeck: Outro

They’re back. One of my favorite bands over the last year, Vulfpeck, has a fresh set of tunes out and a new EP they “snuck in last week”, according to Jack Stratton. Bassist Joe Dart is a monster, and Vulpeck has more than their fair share of monsters on every instrument. Check out Joe’s fills on this tune! Dang. The...

Groove Spoon: Barney Miller Theme Bass Jam

I spent some time working out the bass line to Vulpeck’s awesome “It Gets Funkier”, which of course was recorded by the excellent Joe Dart. Which led me to searching for more stuff by Joe. Which brought me to this awesomeness: a bass duet of the Barney Miller theme. Joe is joined by Jack Stratton, who stepped away from the...

Groove Spoon, Featuring Joe Dart: Dance Week (Groove is Right!)

Groove Spoon is a band that clearly knows how to have fun and knows how to get down. And that’s thanks in large part to one of our favorite groove bassists, Joe Dart, who is a member of Vulpeck, along with the drummer in this video, Jack Stratton. (Jack is a total trip on this one!) The band made this...

Vulfpeck: “Prom”, Live in Studio

I’ve been listening to Vulfpeck’s EP, Mit Peck a lot lately. The band – which is the Vulfrecords Records’ house rhythm section – is so funky, thanks in large part to bassist Joe Dart who just lives in the pocket. But the whole group just grooves, with drummer Jack Stratton, keyboardist Woody Goss and guitarist Theo Katzman. This tune, “Prom”,...

Vulfpeck: It Gets Funkier

We first featured Vulfpeck last June and became instant fans of the band and bassist Joe Dart. Check out this video of the band recording their score for a short film by Baltasar Vilhjálmsdóttir entitled, “Cold Cold Wet”. Joe really gets down on this, especially around the 3 minute mark. This tune is available on Vulfpeck’s EP, Mit Peck. Hey...

Vulfpeck: “Beastly” Live in Studio

Facebook friend Noah Sider shared this with us. This is Vulfrecords Records’ house rhythm section showing their stuff. Check out the funky bass by Joe Dart proving that it is, in fact, all about the bass. And yes, there’s even some cowbell, and some of the smallest drums I’ve ever seen.
