Recommended by Dave Segal


You say you’re going to do a set of songs by New Orleans funk immortals the Meters, makers of some of the most deathless and libidinous grooves ever? Well then, SpiceRack, we should all do what we can to witness this humanitarian gesture. The Seattle quartet—guitarist/composer Tristan Gianola, drummer Thomas Whiteside IV, Hammond B3 player Jake Sele, and bassist Nick Lonien—are supremely well suited for this task, as a listen to their 2015 album So Hip It Hurts testifies. Every musician can play in the pocket—as exemplified by the motherfuckin’ Meters—but these SpiceRack guys can also go off on florid tangents, psychedelicize with tastefulness, and write a memorable melody—even while they sound like they could win a Battle of the Jam Bands competition at Bonnaroo. So, “Cissy Strut” on down to the SeaMonster, y’all. DAVE SEGAL
