MP3 of the Week: The Macrotones "Flutenbier"

Photobucket

Although the MACROTONES aren't niche snobs who get aggravated with the “world music” label often thrust upon them, vague pigeonholes hardly do justice to this Charlestown 10-piece, which romances any number of micro-scenes on a regular basis. Originally formed three years ago as an Afro-funk collective built to break authentic grooves à la Antibalas, they've evolved into a hybrid fit for freaking fans of jazz, boom-bap, roots reggae, and acid-worthy jam bands. Their second studio album, First Signs of Danger — which they're celebrating at Johnny D's this Saturday — demonstrates this infinite crossover appeal. Its lead track, “Flutenbier,” is a choice selection for horn-pumped mid-summer sweatbox animal sex. Grab the MP3 now.
