I play keyboards and act as a sideshow producer in a finnish funkrock band called WGF and we’ve been working on our first demo. Now we’ve pre-released it over at SoundCloud! Bandcamp and Spotify/iTunes/Amazon should be coming later this month/early next month and CD is behind the corner as well (will be available for people outside Finland from Bandcamp).
But for starters, here’s a link to Soundcloud! No Renoise used in this release though, boo. Hopefully at least some of you find this music enjoyable
The music sounds all pretty cool… With no#2 i was waiting for the Black Betty act, but it didn’t came
It seems pretty hard to write ballads with Funk right? (Noticed there aren’t any slow tracks around)
We actually jammed yesterday and accidentally ended up making a slower song. But yeah, ballads aren’t really the thing we want to do although there are a lot of grand examples of such songs in legendary funk albums.
It doesn’t matter much, but acting a single style repetoire can turn up boring on the longer run for certain styles, but there are similar styles next to funk (e.g. boogie woogie) that could give it a nice twist. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a ballad, but chill-out can also be.
