Performer is super excited to premiere a new track by NYC’s Every Flavor Weather Machine. The song is called “Bullhorn (Get to Work)” and fans of Rubblebucket and like-minded artists are sure to dig it.
NYC-based Wonka-funk, keyboard-driven octet, Every Flavor Weather Machine, announce the release of a new EP by dropping first single, “Bullhorn (Get To Work).” Drawing their influence from classic tones of the funk, soul and blues golden ages, Every Flavor Weather Machine utilizes these dynamic old-school meters to create a vivacious, modern-pop-rock sound, complete with a zing of signature horns. “Bullhorn (Get To Work)” is a great introduction to the capabilities of the group. It brings the nostalgia of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, while capturing the essence of other art-pop bands, like Rubblebucket, and adding a dash of indie-dance influence from acts such as Arcade Fire.
Originally formed in 2009 at Tufts University under the moniker of The Smoking Jackets, Ben Anshutz (keyboards/vocals) and Will Maroni (bass) toured the eastern seaboard during their college years. When lineup and location changed in the summer of 2011, so did the name of the band and Every Flavor Weather Machine was born. Today, Anshutz and Maroni are joined by Graham Roggli (drums), Gordon Bartow (trombone/backing vocals), Veronica Gonzalez (trumpet/backing vocals), Chris Diasparra (baritone saxophone), Ele Bernstein (vocals/percussion) and Audrey Bartow (backing vocals). With all new members assembled, the band released their debut full-length album in March of 2013.
Every Flavor Weather Machine has graced the stages of notable NYC venues, such as Brooklyn Bowl and Mercury Lounge. During live shows, the group enjoys putting on a high-energy danceapalooza, sometimes complete with a live painting expose. Matt Miller from Rounder Records went on to say that Every Flavor Weather Machine, “does with disco what Zeppelin did with the blues and the Clash did with reggae: grab it by the balls, stuff some raw attitude down it’s throat, and fire it out of a 100 watt cannon built from pure rock ‘n roll.” Be sure to be on the lookout for more from these modern Wonka-funkers!
