2014 countdown - The Funk Ark

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.
