OKP Premiere: The Rebirth - 'Being Thru The Eyes Of A Child' [LP Stream]
The Rebirth is an LA-based ensemble of funkateers that belong to that ultra-exclusive “10-years-in-the-making-follow-up” demographic of musician. Well, good people, the wait appears to be over and their name is taking on a whole new meaning these days, delivering the fruits of a decade’s worth of fine-tuning in the OKP premiere of their Being Thru The Eyes Of A Child LP. From the get, you receive nodes of jazzy triumphs, fusion-funk grooves and a litany of soulmatic sonic concoctions that lay somewhere between a more polished, straightforward take on Herbie Hancock‘s Headhunters cannon and the poppy, jazz-laced dance music of Thundercat. For those that have been waiting this should be a hearty helping of what you come to know of Breakestra alum Carlos Guaico and his new crew of soul-stirrers and for those that are just getting acquainted, you’re welcome. Hit the player for a taste of The Rebirth’s Being Through The Eyes Of A Child LP ahead of it’s official drop tomorrow and if it’s as god to your ears as it’s been to ours, preorder the record in iTunes today. Keep it locked for more gems from The Rebirth in the weeks and months to come and read a word from Guaico below.
“We challenged ourselves to keep the soul band idea alive, while pushing the genre forward, hopefully elevating us to just being considered simply – just a great band. Our only expectation was to create the most purposeful record we could manifest. The rest we let the universe decide if it’s worthy. “
