If you’re searching for “post-nuclear music,” look no further than Electric Kif, an outstanding quartet from Planet Earth (possibly South Florida). They claim to play experimental music, which to our ears includes jazz, funk, metal and fusion. They are a sonic delight.
Electric Kif are: Digo (Rodrigo Zambrano), bass & Moog bass; Eric Escanes, guitar; Jason Matthews, Hammond SK2, Fender Rhodes & Moog; and Armando Lopez, drums. They have played lots of festivals, including Hulaween and the recent inaugural GroundUp Music Festival, and lots of club and concert dates as well.
And now Electric Kif are releasing their new album Heist and launching a tour that begins this Thursday at the Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival (with pedal steel wizard Roosevelt Collier) and works its way up to New England and back with 13 more dates.
New album Heist will be made available on all digital platforms on March 10th. We’ve had a chance to listen to the new album, which is simply superb, and we will post a complete review next week. In the meantime, click here to listen to the new single, “Little Louie.”
