Galactic::From the corner to the block

New Orleans based Galactic will be releasing their new album “From the corner to the block” on August 21st on Anti- records. Galactic are known for melding funk, hip-hop, and electronica into a fiesta of sound, and can usually be found somewhere on the jam band circuit playing monstrous happenings like Bonnaroo. “From the corner to the block” continues with the same, but shows the band are constantly improving their craft, writing sharper songs with better lyrics. The album definitely leans more in the hip-hop direction with the inclusion of such stars as the Soul Rebels Brass band and Juvenile. There is however still the textbook Galactic explorative instrumental such as the brass flavored Bounce Baby and the guitar based Sidewalk Stepper. The funk is out, and “From the corner to the block” is an inspired effort which should cement Galactic in the annals of New Orleans musical history.
