ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New York City singer/songwriter/guitarist Evan Jaffee (22) has a wiggle in his vocals to the point where you don’t exactly know when he’s being serious or kidding. It gives the music of Real Be Easys the kind of quizzical edge that puts their funk in your face. With Brooklyn bassist/vocalist Paulie T (21) and Queens drummer/vocalist California Leighton (25) providing the stop-on-a-dime precision syncopation fit to twitch to, Jaffee’s insinuatingly snakey leadlines dance atop the melodies like a stripper twining herself around a pole.

In “Defunkt,” which opens their 10-song self-produced, self-distributed debut Lost Paradise, they take a Red Hot Chili Peppers motif and expand upon it as if David Byrne was trading vocals with Anthony Kiedis. In track after track, Jaffee sings with a rapper’s sense of rhythm, rhyme and phrasing, yet still plays up to the psychedelic underpinning that’s at the heart of this band’s music.

Musically wise beyond their years, inventive wordplay (“Ipso Facto”) crosses with a Les Claypool type of bass pop (“Bullet”) and the kind of dynamics (“On The Road”) that, in and of itself, raises the premise of original intent into solid rock’n’roll. Lost Paradise is the kind of album that sticks in your soul like a tattoo on the brain. “Life With My Knife,” for instance, gets positively dark and utilizes progressive-rock elements while “Jam On” exhibits an eccentric acoustic whiteboy soulfulness a la Beck, forcing the realization that there are no genre controls in place here.

And that’s just the thing about Real Be Easys. Just when you think you’ve figured them out, they go all haywire on you, daring you to keep up. The final track, “Rick Rubin” (which actually precedes a hidden jam), is a “tribute” to an artist they admire. Taken in its totality, Lost Paradise could lead one to possibly ponder the future musical direction of such an eclectic brew. The promise of this band, the swagger, the intriguing blending of disparate elements, all point to a multitude of potential avenues that Real Be Easys could traverse. Their future is more than bright. It’s downright blazing.
