MP3 of the Week: The Macrotones "Flutenbier"


Although the MACROTONES aren't niche snobs who get aggravated with the “world music” label often thrust upon them, vague pigeonholes hardly do justice to this Charlestown 10-piece, which romances any number of micro-scenes on a regular basis. Originally formed three years ago as an Afro-funk collective built to break authentic grooves à la Antibalas, they've evolved into a hybrid fit for freaking fans of jazz, boom-bap, roots reggae, and acid-worthy jam bands. Their second studio album, First Signs of Danger — which they're celebrating at Johnny D's this Saturday — demonstrates this infinite crossover appeal. Its lead track, “Flutenbier,” is a choice selection for horn-pumped mid-summer sweatbox animal sex. Grab the MP3 now.
