Get Realization by SCHFViLKUS

This record is FUNKY and WEIRD (two of my favorite words, especially when used together in a sentence). Mix some charged big band swing, a DJ, wacky guitars and a kickin' horn section and the result is pretty darn cool.

With the additional talents of producer Chris Grainger (Sixpence None The Richer), Jeff Coffin (Bela Fleck), and DJ Viper, this Nashville, TN quintet goes to town with odd melodies, strange samples and a box of other oddities.

While you are seeing a lot groups trying to aggregate the funk and electronic thing, there is a stretch between effort and accomplishment. SCHFViLKUS is one of the few groups I've heard to mix all of these things really well, and in the tradition of great jam bands, they lay down some nasty horn-happy grooves you can really dig. Add a little space rock and some drum and bass, you have something something new and different for your palette. Check them out; if you're tastes are broad and adventurous, you will not be disappointed.
