Psychedelic funk super group Star Kitchen have released a brand new single today, an instrumental track called “Entirely,” via Color Red Music. An official press release sent out with the new single also states that the new track will be followed with more releases from the band throughout 2020. You can stream “Entirely” below at the bottom of the article, courtesy of the band’s official YouTube page.
Consisting of bassist Marc Brownstein of The Disco Biscuits, guitarist Danny Mayer of The Eric Krasno Band, keyboardist Rob Marscher of Addison Groove Project, and drummer Marlon Lewis of Lauryn Hill, Star Kitchen officially hit the jam scene only recently but has already generated a noteworthy buzz of popularity, playing sets at events like Peach Music Festival, Electric Forest, and Jam Cruise. The new single “Entirely,” with it’s blend of soulful sounds and rhythmic intensity, comes as the latest evidence of the band’s combined musical potential.
Yet for the new track, the band brought in even more star power, in getting guest musicians Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds and Nate Werth of Ghost Note to lay down on the track as well. About halfway through the instrumental, you can hear Roberts shred an inspired guitar solo, while Werth’s deft percussion work can be heard powering the groove through the entire song.
Star Kitchen released a personal statement about the the new single, discussing the story behind recording it as well as their thoughts about its style. Taken from the single’s official press release:
“Entirely” is a bold lead single that blends boogaloo funk, psychedelic rock, and improvisation influences into a head-bobbing, danceable concoction. On an early 2020 Colorado run anchored with Live for Live Music’s Denver Comes Alive, the band had a few days off and it was a natural fit to stop into Color Red Studios and lay down a few tracks to tape in the old-school, analog setting. During the sessions, bassist Marc Brownstein was recovering from eye surgery, but that didn’t stop him from being a trooper and seamlessly laying down grooving bass lines and pitching ideas during the band’s writing sessions. All songs were composed and arranged in the studio. “Entirely” was arranged in about 30 minutes and showcases an array of influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Phish, James Brown, and more. Produced by Josh Fairman, the band then passed the track to Color Red founder/New Mastersounds’ guitarist Eddie Roberts to guest on guitar and Nate Werth of Ghost-Note/Snarky puppy to overdub percussion parts.
