While the group has already earned a dedicated following from coast to coast with their bold sound, tight grooves, and expert musicianship, the buzz around the band is growing with the upcoming release of their new album, Caldera, which is due out September 22nd. Caldera comes as a follow-up to Polyrhythmics’ critically acclaimed third studio album, Octagon, which catapulted the group into the national spotlight and earned them spots on bills with Snarky Puppy, Booker T, and more, as well as on lineups for big-name festivals, such as Bumbershoot, High Sierra, and Vancouver International Jazz Fest. For their fourth studio effort, Caldera is set to be similarly well-received, with the band offering a mesmerizing and eclectic album that showcases the unique sound rooted in funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat.Polyrhythmics Expand Fall Tour Ahead Of New Album’s ReleaseAhead of the release of Caldera next month, Polyrhythmics is giving our readers a taste of what they’re all about with the release of the music video for “Goldie’s Road” off the new album. “Goldie’s Road” itself is slinky and trance-like, simultaneously laid back and eerie, all the while evoking tunes of the 1970’s with its old-school groove, psychedelic effects, and wah-wah heavy guitar. As trombonist Elijah Clark tells Live For Live Music, “‘Goldie’s Road’ is about the journey along a never traveled highway, and the experiences that an individual finds along that road are the destination itself. The song was composed primarily on melodica and trombone, the only two instruments I had at my disposal. It’s a piece written from the limitations of a location, but the freedom of a seemingly endless supply of time while trapped outside of city life. During the writing of ‘Goldie’s Road’, I was listening and absorbing a lot from Amharic musicians and songs such as Mulatu Astatke, Tilahun Gessesse, and Eritrean Krar music. I hope that a bit of the trance-like beauty of the Ethiopian and Eritrean tradition shines through in this song that is indicative of the sound of Polyrhythmics at a certain interval.”This new music video compliments the sound of “Goldie’s Road” nicely, with its sepia-drenched and ever-changing video collage using its simplistic presentation emphasizing the complexity of the music born from Polyrhythmics’ eight individual members. Live For Live Music is proud to present the premiere of Polyrhythmics’ new music video, and you can check it out for yourself below.

A mobile app that shines with 5 stars

first_img continue reading » Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union($2.3B, Saint Paul, MN) has been busy.In the past three years, the second-largest credit union in the Gopher State has undergone seven major systems conversions, including changes to both its core and digital banking providers that allowed it to introduce an entirely new digital experience to members.“Members couldn’t fully self-serve digitally, which led them to call us or come into the branch to do their everyday banking,” says Maha Brauch, director of digital services at Affinity Plus.According to Brauch, the credit union’s previous vendor dictated its digital roadmap and strategy, and the overall experience for members wasn’t mobile-first or as all-encompassing as the institution wanted.
