"A grab-bag of niche ‘60s and ‘70s musical genres and works the ingredients into its simmering funk base." - Bandcamp: Album of the Day
Ghost Funk Orchestra is the brainchild of composer/multi-instrumentalist Seth Applebaum. What started as a one-man recording project has now evolved into a 10-piece powerhouse live band. It’s a sonic kaleidoscope that defies genre specification but draws heavy influence from the worlds of soul, psych rock, salsa, and beyond.
Their unique blend of genres has attracted praise from the likes of Bandcamp, KUTX, Brooklyn Vegan, Earmilk, and more. Local NY blog Post-Trash described their sound as a ‘psych odyssey of traditional sounds delivered in a non-traditional fashion.’ Bandcamp’s Editorial Director J. Edward Keyes praised the band’s ability to ‘leave no funk-adjacent genre unexplored.’ Now, coming off of their highly regarded 2019 release ‘A Song For Paul,’ GFO is hard at work preparing their follow-up LP, to be released in fall 2020 on Karma Chief.
