Tip the Artist
“The Cutdown” gets its name from a late-night harvest on the eve of Polyrhythmics’ departure to their annual late-night appearances during New Orleans Jazz Fest. Guitarist Ben Bloom imagined the track setting the scene for a vibrant late night on Frenchmen St late at night during the city’s flagship musical gathering where modern electronic sounds are met with spirited funk bands performing to eager crowds at iconic venues. “The Cutdown” is the soundtrack to stepping outside to get some air, running into friends casually swaying to a second-line street party, and raising the vibes even higher. This track is off of the group’s 2020 full-length LP ‘Man From the Future’ and the digital single release is in celebration of the record’s second vinyl pressing coming out on Color Red in spring 2022.
