It's been a while since The Funk Ark proved to be one of the most dynamic funk bands out there on "High Noon". It was about time to get the news that the band from Washington signed with Ropeadope Records to release a new record entitled "Man is a Monster" in mid October.
Though the funk genre is obviously the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of this group, they already showcased their ability to integrate various rhythmic elements in their musical approach like reggae or afrobeat. It is the latter that is especially the case on the title track for the new album "Man is a Monster" which is already available on Youtube. A steady uptempo groove and dynamic horns make this tune definitely worth watching out for the full length album.
