Mumpbeak: Mumpbeak

The band Mumpbeak consists of Ray Powell/cav-pedals, Pat Mastelotto/dr-perc and the double bassed team of Bill Laswell with either/and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz, Lorenzo Feliciati and Tony Levin. The music, as expected by the lineup, is heavy on the heavy, with lots of stress being put on your sub-woofer on tunes like “Biscuit” and “Monocle.” The tunes are deep rivulets of groove, with solos provided by Powell and Laswell that are thick and rich. Sort of a throwback to the prog rock days the 70s, but with a bit of extra techno and rhythm and a bit less on the European melodies of life.
