Playlist: Big brass throwback
Posted by Stephen Hoffman
For Marketplace Friday, July 23, 2010
This week something strange happened, we had a lot of last minute edits, fixes and changes to the show - the result? I didn't get a chance to really think about our bridge music ... but sometimes it works out for the best.
Digging through the Marketplace musical crates I happened upon something great - which happens when you dig through crates sometimes - "Wolves," by Dosh, a Minneapolis-based musician and producer.
Although he goes by Dosh, his given name is Martin Luther King Chavez Dosh ... that in and of itself is amazing. Even though the album that the song comes from, "Wolves and Wishes," was released in 2008, it has a total throwback feel. A time when a band had a multi-piece brass section. Think of a James Brown, think of Maceo Parker, think of Parliament Funkadelic ... when I heard Dosh, that's what I thought.
