Buzz Alert: Jelani Sei Unleashes Ethereal Funk in New EP, Kaaria

Transcendental indie-funk band Jelani Sei has released a genre-bending second EP in Kaaria, a study in ethereal soundscapes mixed with soulful vocals and nasty funk grooves.  The vocal work is exemplary, with complimenting performances from Kayana Guity and Evan Lawrence that work seemlessly together to create a unified voice.  Catchy hooks, inventive songwriting, and tight instrumentals make Kaaria a release that is not to be missed. -Brian Varneke





Baeja Vu Plays Thunder Road Music Club 2/2

The Cambridge 7-piece, Baeja Vu, is a one-of-a-kind mixture of throwback R&B, hip-hop, and funk.  Sporting dual vocals, the counterpoint of soulful melody vs acrobatic hip-hop flow is backed up by a Motown-style band that makes sampling seem outdated.  Check them out at Thunder Road Music Club with West End Blend and Slam Kitchen and find out if you're their #1 bae. -Brian Varneke





Sip that Soul Syrup with Tribe Mars Tonight

Have yourself a hefty pour of some sensually funky soul syrup with Tribe Mars, who amid a lineup change still boast the same incredible output. Now featuring the talented Vaughn Kimmons (of POPgoji and as Brown Alice), the group's interesting arrangements are only elevated by the ardent vocality of Kimmons.

Rescheduled from its original weather-postponed date and location, Tribe Mars will be joining Blossom tonight at new downtown nightclub NYX for some Sunday Sessions vibes, hosted by multitalented singer-songwriter-producer Fritzwa.

It's free, so let your soul glow up in the city's newest spot with music starting at 9pm.
