Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

FUNKTION

Funk Prelude

2009-09-06

Out of Kalamazoo, Funktion offers soul-tinged blues on this, their debut release. Andrew Schrock does a nice job with the vocals, sometimes doing it soulfully, such as on "Hypnotyze" and sometimes doing it hip-hop style, such as on the title track. Horn solos abound, but are kept tastefully short, such as Terrence Massey's trumpet solo on "#4". Funky soul can be had on the track "Funk Spot" and on the slightly slower "Make You See". All in all, this is a fine debut album of dance floor-filling, radio-friendly blues. Rebecca Ruth
