At first there shouldn’t be many music addicts around who wouldn’t give a chance to a band called Freudian Slurp. In this case, ‘curiocity won’t kill the cat’ we may reassure you, and the Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, may feel more than happy about being their atypical Godfather.
But let’s move on to the main dish and the music, and the exclusive video premiere on Last Day Deaf, which captures those dudes in perfect coordination, genuinley performing “Pt. 3 of The Getaway Car Trilogy a suite of cinematic songs that illustrate a heist being plotted, executed and a sweet car chase scene!”
Fans of sacred improvisational jazz, Chick Corea and Frank Zappa should by all means invest!
Freudian Slurp was founded in 2012, by Seattle Native, guitar player and composer Ian Hughes. The band is comprised of Ian, on guitar, with his brother Dylan Hughes on the Electric Bass. Jon Goneau (Keyboards), Tyler Graves (Drums) and Adam Robb, the most recent addition, on the Trumpet and Flugelhorn.
In April of 2017 the band solidified their sound with the release of their second album: Get It? Its release show was a stellar evening at the Seamonster Lounge including a variety of special musical guests, including the renowned Marina Albero on the Hammered Dulcimer, and Shyam Joseph Raja on the Tabla. Slurp has played festivals and clubs around washington state, Including Folklife and The Bite of Seattle.
Recorded live in front of an audience in the Chapel Performance Space in Seattle, The Getaway Car stresses groove, musicality, and improvisation over a palette of cinematically influenced instrumental jazz and rock. The music has been compared to older fusion, like Chick Corea or Weather Report, as well as newer fusion in the vein of Kneebody and Snarky Puppy. Their music always strives to tell a story or paint a picture.
