As a New Yorker, it can be quite common to conveniently forget that other cities across the country have vital music scenes. Granted, they may not exactly compare to New York as far as actual size, but they’re just as important when it comes to gaining a sense of a larger musical scene. Interestingly, the state of Colorado has a music scene that has received quite a bit of attention nationally – in particular, Denver, CO and Fort Collins, CO have had a number of bands who have received love nationally, especially if you think of indie rock, folk, and funk.
Analog Son, is the latest project from Denver, CO funk all-stars Jordan Linit and Josh Fariman, best known for their work in Kinetix; however, where Analog Son differs is in the fact that the project’s sound is a funk based fusion song – so their compositions employ elements of rock, jazz and of course, funk as you’ll hear on the Maceo Parker-sounding “Fried Grease."
Analog Son’s debut effort will see a June 10th release, and it features an all-star roster of guest stars including Ryan Zoidis and Eric Bloom (The Shady Horns, Lettuce, Soulive), Joe Tatton (The New Mastersounds), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Joey Porter (The Motet) and several other national and regional funk titans to flesh out the album’s sound.
