New York, New York (PressExposure) June 25, 2013 -- Following GI Blythe's recent announcement to provide periodic free music downloads of songs from their successful CD release Lost in Space, and the offering of their first, "Run Rabbit Run," they are now providing a second free cut written by Geoff Blythe. "Falling" is a sardonic, relentless groove from start to finish, the tale of a profligate upstart who may--or may not--have reached the end of his adventurism. In the wake of a highly successful national radio campaign and last year's triumphant CD release tour of the East Coast, beginning with a CD release party at Connolly's Klub 45 in New York City and closing with a CD release concert at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY, GI Blythe will be offering further free song downloads in the months to come, so stay tuned! As many fans are already aware, GI Blythe is a group of seasoned musical pros from a variety of impressive musical backgrounds who've come together to fuse a high-energy hybrid of wit and horn-centric good-time Rock, which is amply demonstrated on Lost in Space.
Lost in Space is an exhilarating introduction to a band that has already piqued some discerning ears and raised some diverse eyebrows. Along with the humorously macabre "Run Rabbit Run" and the ironic and witty "Falling" the CD contains other original tunes written by Blythe, Archie Brown & Jim Paterson--including the instrumental "Freedom March" with some swinging, scorching Jazzy moments--and their funky and haunting "The Narrative of G. Bristol Groot (Vampyre)" (also a video available on YouTube), which like many cuts on the album just might bring you out of your chair. So be forewarned: before you put on this music be sure to put on your dancing shoes!
GI Blythe is a band of exceptional players from the U.K. and the U.S. that have outrageous chops and share a pure joy of making music that is both exuberant and street savvy. Several members of GI Blythe have worked together in various music settings over the years--including Dexy's Midnight Runners and Black 47--and along with Geoffrey Blythe have collectively played and/or recorded with a number of diverse artists from Elvis Costello, Paul Simon and Nick Lowe to Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and The Funk Brothers (of Motown fame), to name but a few. The band's foundation is provided by drummer Crispin 'the Pump' Taylor and bassist Joe 'Bear Claw' Burcaw--and these guys cook! They provide a solid pocket that energetically propels the band and allows lead singer Archie Brown and the horns of Blythe and 'Big Jim' Paterson (trombone & backup vocals), along with the keys of Pete Levin and guitars of Larry Baeder, to alternately punch the rhythm section and float above the smooth ride effortlessly. Although the band's players are accomplished pros, they retain a raucous, authentic post-punk attitude resulting in a sound that's soulful, sometimes Jazzy (with tasteful flashes of dissonance--and a funky beat!), rockin' and audacious--all at the same time!
