The Apples – Funk and Electric Jazz
I was just introduced to the Apples, an excellent band out of Israel that fuses jazz, funk, turntables, and electronics. If you like Liquid Soul, you’ll love this group. Their MySpace page describes them as a “blend of funk, jazz and electronic music, forgoing the traditional use of guitar, keyboards and vocals. Instead, they center around four turntables, flanked by a sharp horn section served up by thick double bass lines and steadfast drum beats, fed through an attentive sound console and organic effects.” I haven’t found any of their music available in the States. Thankfully, we have the Internet so geography won’t preclude me from buying their music at an online store elsewhere.
