More blistering jazz rock from New York's downtown scene...c'mon, what did you expect?

Jazz-punk smartasses Gutbucket released Flock earlier this year, their fifth album after being together for 12 years. It’s very much a “this-is-what-we-do” statement after trying to justify their existence for so long. Be it saxophonist Ken Thomson’s jazz leanings, guitarist Ty Citerman’s hard rock distortion or the fact that the rhythm section of drummer Adam D. Gold and bassist Eric Rockwin are caught somewhere in the middle, Flock strangely doesn’t favor a particular style, composer or performer. This is democracy, in action.


The below video is a lighthearted look back at the band’s 12 year history and some live footage of these new songs. Titled include “Fuck You and Your Hipster Tie” and “Born Again Atheist Suite: Part Two – Sacrificial Vegan.”

The primary interest of this music lies in the rampant juxtaposition of styles, themes, moods, rhythms, and melodies, all very much chosen on purpose and carefully planned out along the way.
