As our latest addition to our Original Artists / Funk & Soul category, Lucybrownsville describes their sound as "70's influenced rock and soul in the genre of sly and the family stone/rolling stones/otis redding, etc...". Judging from the deliciously distorted electric piano and modulated vocals that introduce "Drown" from their their Myspace page, I'd say that about nails the vibe. Of course this isn't exactly a new direction for singer/keyboardist Marcus Christy and drummer Paul Winterhalter. You may recall those names from our 2004 review of Four Deep. Now the pair have matched up with bassist Mike Wilbur and singer Rebekah Hopper to create Lucybrownsville. Check them out live upstairs at The Berkley Front on Dec 19th at 9pm.
