REDUX BACK IN RELIX MAGAZINERedux won the Relix Jamoff Contest this month, earning us a spot on the CD sampler in the February/March issue of Relix. Major Tom is on there, accompanied by tracks from The Black Crowes, Ween, The Drive-By Truckers and several others. It's on news stands now. Rock star status pending.
WE GOT A NEW NAMEIt took 4 months of nit-picking, obsessive madness, but we've finally settled upon Redux. Defined as "a new interpretation of", it represents the next chapter in our music. We will of course still be playing songs off Under The Microscope, but a whole a batch of new ones are steadily emerging. So if you ocassionally see "Ripplegroove" on this site DON'T BE CONFUSED. We are now REDUX.
NEW MP3 DOWNLOAD AVAILABLEWe've updated our Downloads page with a new mp3. It was taken from our live show at the Knitting Factory on 8/3/07. The track is Dana's Lick, and it's one of the first recordings of us with our new drummer RJ. Check it out.
OUR NEW DRUMMER HAS ARRIVEDWe'd like to welcome RJ Rabin to the drum throne as our new skin slappin', beat rippin' head hitter! We're lovin' his sound and gellin' like nobody's business. He's a welcome new arrival to the team. Check out this latest video clip from The Knitting Factory on June 9, 2007 to check out the personnel.
NEW CD ARTWORKAfter we ran out of our first run of Under The Microscopes, we of course had to make more. But we revamped the artwork with the help of an additional artist and an additional photographer. Abby Getman lent a daft artistic touch to the graphics, and Fred Jourdain sent us some outstanding photos from our show in Quebec City. Fred is a phenomonal artist and photographer so please go check out his site at www.fredjourdain.com. You can see a handful of pictures from the Quebec show on the band page.
JAMBASE AND RELIXWe're in the press! That's right. Both Jambase and Relix have shown a little love for us. Go to Jambase.com and check it out. A very articulate (and former-fellow San Diegan) Josh Klemons gave UTM a great review and we're happy to receive it. And, in the October/November issue of Relix we're featured in the Listen Up section, courtesy of Sonicbids. So that's it. We're world famous rock stars. Or, national...famous rock stars. Or, no....national kinda-famous jazz-rock stars. Uuuuh, national, lightly-buzzing, jazz/jam/rock up-and-comers? Whatever.
(recorded under previous name "Ripplegroove")
Under The Microscope
"...lush backgrounds, rocking solos, funky bass lines, and solid drum beats."
