Blow Back - MKG
a hard rain’s a gonna fall
We've been on the authentic-yet-different afrobeat tip since we dropped Antibalas' Who Is This America? back in 2004. The evolution of music is the driving force that keeps this whole thing spinning, and now Will Rast of Antibalas brings the next phase to reality with The Funk Ark. Serious players, serious business, serious groove. That's what this band is all about, so dig in right here and get busy.
Our new resident rockers, Kalen & The Sky Thieves, are hitting the road in support of their new record, Bluebird. Tour starts tomorrow right here in Philly Town and you know they are gonna throw down. Check the dates right here, get hip at this spot, and preorder the new album right over here. And watch the sky carefully.
MKG Takes You Home
If you dig that deep southern soul, MKG is where you want to be. The powerhouse band from Atlanta GA delivers two new records - Music Without Words and Music With Words - over the next two weeks.

Dig the new site right here, preorder the combo right over here, and put your work aside and spend a little time watching right over here. Take a ride with MKG.

All About Kalen & The Sky Thieves
Bluebird is the debut album from Brooklyn-based Kalen & the Sky Thieves. Produced and recorded by the band and John Davis at The Bunker Studio, Bluebird runs the gamut from modern alternative to old time rock and roll. The album serves to fulfill Kalen's dream of making a proper rock record, while providing a platform for her to exercise her considerable vocal talents. The band consists of Kalen's long-time Sky Thieves, Jay Giacomazzo (I, Revere) on bass, Will Hanza (Loop Grass) on guitar, and Wayan Zoey (Russ Kaplan +7), and the majority of the album was recorded live in the studio to enhance the raw power of people making music together with real instruments.
