Funk and soul music is not something you can throw together off the cuff, it has to have a groove, a feel that makes it more than just the music itself. James Brown, Otis Redding, George Clinton & P-Funk, Prince, etc. all channel that power into their music. To categorize Phildelphia’s Swift Technique as just another band playing a blend of funk, soul and hip hop sells what they’re doing far too short. They know how to channel that groove, with some of the best musicianship I’ve seen in recent memory and a stage show overflowing with unbridled energy. The times I saw Swift Technique were easily two of the best shows I saw all this past year.

They have quite a few shows coming up including their Boston debut tomorrow night. I highly recommend you get out and see them if you can. Go, they’ll make you a believer too.

Don’t forget we have a really great show coming up this Sunday November 16th at The M Room in Philadelphia. Up until about a month ago I had never heard of Swift Technique, but after having seen them, how they remain one of Philadelphia’s best kept secrets I don’t know. Playing a unique blend of horn infused funk, soul and hip hop with a Philly edge, they are one of the tightest bands I have seen in quite a while. Blew me away the first time I saw them, trust me you’ll be kicking yourself for a long time to come if you miss this one on Sunday, they’re hot. Also on the bill are Dear Althea, with a sound somewhere between Sonic Youth and Sleater Kinney, they prove that the girls rock as hard as the boys. And opening the night. a relatively rare appearance by the noisy art phenomenon that is Rogue Thief.
A varied and amazing night of music all around. See you there.
