A Bunch of Dead People make alternate dimension funk, play Baby's 7.31

Brooklyn’s A Bunch of Dead People is the experimental funk solo project of Ruben Sindo Acosta that “has since become a cult,” in their own words. Listening to debut Your Eternal Reward helps illuminate why the band chose this self-descriptor. Over the course of seven, fuzzed out tracks, Acosta lays down groovy vintage bops, accentuatedby a preference for time signature changes, discordantly off-kilter synths, and enormous sax lines. His eccentric take on funk music challenges the listener’s expectations, delivering a full length effort that feels like what funk music would sound like in an alternate David Lynch-inspired dimension. Stream the delightfully freaky LP below, and catch A Bunch of Dead People at Baby’s All Right on July 31st, alongside Irrevery, Francie Moon, and Wooter. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Kleptokrat release new EP, play Rose Gold on 7/9

Combining elements of pop, jazz, soul and heavy rock into an appealing progressive mix, Brooklyn's Kleptokrat is a band intent in expanding the parameters of alternative rock. Their newly released sophomore EP “Momentarily, to Grace” boasts five impeccably recorded, genre-twisting tracks. Soulful horns and sweet, jazzy female lead vocals establish the mood on opening song “The Great Leap Forward.” Over the track's four minutes, precise, angular structures give way to floating ambient interludes that merge together with beguiling charm. “Jumping Ship” applies those light and airy vocals to a lyrically dense story of relationships coming undone, punctuated by heavy bass, sax and drums. “Kleptocito” further adds touches of latin rhythms to what becomes an over five minute instrumental tour-de-force. Final cuts “The View at Bethlehem” and “Body in the Room” bring back those engaging, honeyed vocals over alternately dreamy-to-frenzied compositions. The band kicks off their summer tour at Rose Gold on 7/9, followed by a stop in Philly on 7/11. Full tour dates can be found here. - Dave Cromwell

Music Blesses America at High Sierra Music Festival

Looking for something fun to do this 4th of July weekend? Do you love you some great mountains majesty, music of all shapes and genres, and food? Beverages? Trees? Camping? We recommend the High Sierra Music Festival for some good ol’ fashioned American purity. From Dispatch to Jim James, Del & Dawg to The New Mastersounds, the festival has something for most musical tastes. It’s like Burning Man but peaceful. Local favorites include Midnight North, Royal Jelly Live, Rainbow Girls, More Fatter and Eric Long. The festival runs from July 4th thru 7th in the lovely Quincy, Ca. We hope to see you there and tell us post-fest: which acts were your highlights? Land of the free, home of some killer music. May music bless America! - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
