At The Funckyard

GMF – Grand Mother's Funck have been reinvented. This Swiss band has been spreading cheer and packing concert halls for over a decade. Now, you can let the party roar into your own living room with "At The Funckyard", the latest release of this eight-piece groove machine. "At The Funckyard" is a multi-faceted masterpiece that highlights each member of the band. From the very beginning it’s clear that a lot of work has gone into in this new GMF production. The first track "GMF Intro" is a clever sound collage of the album’s songs and gives a taste of what’s to come. And then the sound takes off! "Ecstasy" is an impressive showcase for guest singer Tatiana Ferraro. With its heavy bass, pumping beats, crisp horns, and three and a half minutes of full vocals, it’s not just the length of the track that screams pop - but hey, it's funky, so what! “Blame It" is more relaxed, but also very groovy and very danceable. The song is a hilarious conversation between the hopeless music junky Rich Fonje, GMF's lead singer, and his musically-challenged girlfriend. Music aficionados will enjoy the intentional references to well-known soul classics. The next track, "Sympathy", is more down to earth. Here Rich plays a priest lamenting the lack of compassion in the world, with Bean on saxophone and the GMF horn section preaching right along with him. "Why Not!" seems pleasant and polished enough at first, but on closer inspection reveals an edge. Bernie’s energetic guitar licks are in constant dialogue with Chnufi on keyboards. And when Rich lasciviously groans "Why Not!" into the mike, well, she’s just got to go with it! Things slow down with the moving ballad “Stay with Me”, composed by trombonist René Mosele. Here, the artistic choir arrangements serve to further showcase Tatiana Ferraro’s voice.
