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 search for more stuff by Joe.

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.
