Polyrhythmics at The Ruins (Hood River, OR)
This show will be in The Back Room, the indoor venue at The Ruins. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

Rich with bold brass and hypnotic percussion, Polyrhythmics latest album, Caldera,showcases the instrumental eight-pieces impossibly tight grooves and virtuosic musicianship as they tear through a singular blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock,R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat. Calling to mind everything from Antibalas and the Dap-Kings to The Meters and Fela Kuti, its without a doubt their strongest work to
date, merging the infectious power of their live show with a sleek and nuanced studio
sophistication.

Named for the smoldering crater left after a volcanic eruption, Caldera was written during a band retreat to rural Oregon, where Polyrhythmics embraced truly
collaborative songwriting for the first time during a marathon session in the shadow of Mt. Hood (itself an active volcano). The resulting album is a blistering declaration from a band thats progressed beyond the sum of its influences to come fully into its
own. From the downtempo, Afrobeat trance of Stargazer, to the triumphantly anthemic, high-octane pump-up funk of Marshmallow Man, Caldera is instrumental
music at its best: emotional, evocative, mesmerizing. On Cactus Blossoms Polyrhythmics craft an eerie, retro gem straight out of a 70s film score, while the
trippy effects and wah-wah guitar of Goldies Road suggest a psychedelic journey (or perhaps a bad trip), and the shuffling Vodka For My Goat draws on Stax soul while hinting at BB Kings merger of the blues and jazz. Its an eclectic collection, tied together by the melding of eight distinct musical voices coming together as a cohesive
whole.

The record follows the Seattle bands stellar third album, Octagon, which earned them tour dates around the country along with plenty of critical acclaim. The Stranger
dubbed Polyrhythmics a group to watch, hailing their sophisticated slinkiness and expressive brassiness. while WNCW praised their modern afro-psycho-beat blend
and the Seattle Times dubbed them funk maestros. The band was invited to perform live on influential Seattle NPR station KEXP, shared bills with everyone from Snarky
Puppy to Booker T, and played massive festival stages including Bumbershoot, High Sierra, and Vancouver International Jazz Fest.

Polyrhythmics are:
Ben Bloom: Guitars, Grant Schroff: Drums, Nathan Spicer: Keys. Lalo Bello: Percussion, Karl Olson: Percussion, Jason Gray: Bass, Scott Morning: Trumpet, Elijah Clark: Trombone, Art Brown: Sax and Flute
