This just in and I LOVE it! Play this MP3! Had Kimmer dancing around the office!
Brooklyn's CSC Funk Band will be releasing their debut album 'Things Are Getting Too Casual' tomorrow on Fat Beats Records on CD/Vinyl/Digital. The band that Time Out NY says, "Hectic '70s-style jams nodding to James Brown, Fela, and other icons of groove." will also be celebrating in NYC with 2 release parties.
In 2010 the group released two 7”s on drummer Jim Thomson’s Electric Cowbell Records: “Bad Banana Bread/Caneca” and a split with Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Iron and Wine). Once the band’s Electric Cowbell 45’s caught the attention of Brooklyn’s legendary Fat Beats Records, the idea of a proper full-length release for 2011 began to take shape.

The album balances slightly urgent and mildly aggressive tracks such as “Canaca” and “Fiesta” with more chill and casual tracks such as “Bad Banana Bread” and “Funk Shoppe.” Explains Jim, “The latter could be the soundtrack for when you’re searching for that spot in the grass to put your picnic blanket while the former tracks mentioned have that car chase under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway at the end-of-the-world-Mayan-calendar vibe.”

The band is hot on the heels of two sought after 45′s, an Official Record Store Day 2011 limited edition 7” featuring an exclusive remix of “A Troll’s Soiree” and a 7” single featuring a track from critically acclaimed Light in the Attic DVD “Wheedle’s Groove.” Two great collector tracks to keep you satisfied until the band’s debut drops. Things Are Getting Too Casual will be released via full-length vinyl, CD, and digitally.
