Vulfpeck Just Released A New Jam That’s As Silky Smooth As Land O’Lakes Butter
As mentioned before, the meteoric rise of Vulfpeck over the last few years is easily one of my favorite things currently happening in live music. If there was a freshman list for rad innovations in thoughtful jazz-funk, I’d put Vulfpeck, Snarky Puppy, Lettuce, Turkuaz, and Kamasi Washington at the very top of it. If you get a chance to check them out on what’s left of the festival circuit this summer, do it. Personally, I’m stoked to be front-and-center for their Friday set at Lock’N in late August.
When Vulfpeck drops new tunes, I kinda start freaking out. Earlier today they released visuals for a cover of Joey Dosik’s “Game Winner,” a soulful sports-themed song with Charles Jones belting away on vocals and rhodes. Vulfpeck has had “Game Winner” in their live set rotation for a couple months, but today is the first we get to hear a high quality studio rendition of the jam. Musically, it’s as silky smooth as a stick of Land O’Lakes, making it perfect for those not-so-subtle late night Spotify playlists with titles like “dimmed lights” and “love badger.”
It’s so good to have new Vulfpeck in our lives, Bros.
