Grand Analog’s latest work, Modern Thunder, was produced collectively with each band member adding their unique talents and flavor. The record keeps Grand Analog’s genre traditions alive, while fine-tuning the sound and solidifying it as a cohesive package. It’s Hip-Hop’s new folklore; skillfully and subtly blending anything from afro-beat to rock.
Ironically, the music of Modern Thunder dwells on everything classic. The album opener, Lion Head, fuses early afro-beat rhythms on hard hitting hip-hop drums while the electro-hop sounds of heart the lonely Hunter lends a Joni Mitchell-type vocal to the chorus. Wild Animal Print flirts with classic house while Guys & Girls has the funk.
