DUMPSTAPHUNK - WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE - LTD BRONZE/GOLD VINYL
Where Do We Go From Here is Dumpstaphunk's first album in seven years, released on The Funk Garage, an imprint of Mascot Label Group.
Over the past 17 years, Dumpstaphunk have earned a reputation as the most well-regarded next-generation New Orleans live powerhouse, the type of band whose live shows attract sit-ins from legends like Carlos Santana, Bob Weir and Trombone Shorty. Alongside Hall, Daniels, Alex Wasily, Ryan Nyther and drummer Devin Trusclair, cousins Ivan and Ian Neville have built upon their family's iconic NOLA legacy as they've transformed Dumpstaphunk into the city's pre-eminent 21st-century funk-fusion export.
The band's mix of classic and modern influences can be heard throughout the party-friendly mix of R&B, funk, rock, swamp-pop and blues of Where Do We Go From Here, from the slap-bass rave Make It After All to the band's contemporary renderings of NOLA R&B rarities (the 1975 Blackmail gem Let's Get At It) and early '70s classics (Sly and the Family Stone's In Time).
Where Do We Go From Here is perhaps the best evidence yet of Dumpstaphunk's ability to strengthen and transform their singular NOLA roots in combination with the deeper outside musical and philosophical influences on which the band is founded.
