Album Review: “New Day” by Flyjack

front-cover-fists-500px

The Austin, Texas band Flyjack considers their record New Day to be “a love letter to late 60’s and early 70’s rare groove, soul and deep funk.” There certainly is a throw-back to these eras, especially with the opening track, on this record. There is also, however, a modern approach that show Flyjack’s own musical sensibilities that is full of unbridled love for music and social justice. The record is a groove-fest (especially with the drums and bass) that also touches on issues of racial and gender inequality here in the United States that our society often ignores.

The psychedelic angle of New Day is a welcome return to an era where music was legit, but the band also gives their own approach. New Day is a fun ride.
