ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from the frosty shores of Lake Superior, Floydian Slip branch off from the "Jam Band" tradition pioneered by The Grateful Dead, Phish, and the Allman Brothers Band.

Combining the eclectic guitar and vocals of Andy Noyes, the hypnotic rhythms of drummer Jeff Kriner, the razor-sharp playing of guitarist and singer Olaf Kirsten, and the bone-shaking lines of bassist Marlin Ledin, Floydian Slip blend a sharp pop sensibility with serious improvisational abilities.

Sets move from well-crafted pop songs to extended improv jams to pulsating reggae and back again, often without stopping for air.

Songs become other songs on the fly, funk becomes reggae becomes rock becomes dub becomes jazzy blues becomes something entirely new, and a concert or dance becomes an event.

Going to see Floydian Slip play is more than just going out to hear a band-it's a commitment to join the players on a musical journey.

Floydian Slip shows often feature audience members dancing onstage with the band, band members playing on the dance floor, and everyone involved throwing themselves completely into the experience.

In a theatre, in a bar, in a coffeehouse, at a college dance, or at an outdoor festival, Floydian Slip must be heard-and experienced- to be believed.

Better Than A Trip To the Zoo
Being a "jam band" fan, I am always looking for new bands that can produce magic in the moment. The trouble is that many times these bands are unable to capture much of the enthusiasm and spontaneity of a live show onto a CD. I have had the pleasure hearing FLOYDIAN SLIP'S CD "Field Trip". This is one band that stacks up.

It is hard to believe this is just a quartet, because they have such a full and fun sound. One of the strongest tracks, "My Brother" is an excellent example of this. This single has an infectious groove, insightful lyrics, and hot licks. What more could you want?

Another favorite tune is "Another Way".

"She was joined by thousands who all came to see
The whole world sing out in perfect harmony
People were laughing, people were dancing the whole world was saved
She said I told you son, there's got to be another way."

Olaf Kirsten's voice (vocals and guitar) is unique in that it almost sounds fragile at the start, but then has a tendency to creep up on you. Before you know it, his voice is strong, fierce and solid. Aside from sounding great, his originals are inspiring, often hitting on deep and meaningful issues, and all the while, delivered in a danceable, funky tune.

Andy Noyes' (lead guitar) guitar licks and leads are unbeatable. I am surprised I have never heard him before on any studio work. Without being overbearing, he is able to weave his hooks and lines in and around a melody in the most pleasing and funky manner.

Jeff Kriner on drums (a former student at Berklee College of Music) is a master. His grooves are tight, solid and inspiring but his fills are downright scary. As he breaks into a polyrhythmic fill, you think for a moment "where is he going...how can he get back into the groove?" but in an instant he is back, never loosing a beat, and winning over the respect and admiration of the listener.

Josh Munter (bass) is as solid as they come. Never loosing the groove, he rarely steps out of the box, but when he does, it is only to provide a most satisfying and fat fill. Then he is back to the funky groove, something all great bass players do.

This band has something positive and new to say. In a world of over-produced, self-indulgent, self-important musicians who have traded in their muse for radio play and residuals, I say "kudos" to Floydian Slip. With a sincere and honest sound, they are doing it right. They are independent, inspired, and open.

This CD has been in my player for almost three weeks straight, and I am not sick of it at all. That says it all right there. I continue to hear new things that amaze me. Even though this band has a grassroots beginning, I predict they will be a breakout band shortly. They are making a name for themselves in the Midwest. Check them out if you can. Their live show is a treat.

This band has found pockets of music others would have never reached
I really dig this music! They have a fun little sound and can really jam around! The sax puts me in the groove while I'm in the shower or riding in the car. Either way, their music has an ability to explore certain realms of conciousness! Hands down a great psycedelic trip and a journey to vast lands of melody, rhythm, and harmony!

floydian slip road trip
what can i say? some day you will be wishing you had the autographed first-run copy of this disk that I have. their cd's, even the live one, just don't quite live up to the real live floydian slip experience. i even bummed rides from chicago all the way to appleton, wi to see them.

Love it more than beer
What can I say? I would hitchhike to see these guys and often have. The CD's are great, but their live shows are killer. The best part is both CD's have live cuts on them. You guys jam!

It's so far out, it's right on.
I love these guyzez music. It leaves quivering in my muckluks and wanting more! I've seen them a bunch of times! It's so good! I'm surprised there not huge! I sometimes hide outside their homes and take secret photographs of them, and then go home and paste them on my walls in my room!

Ethan

AHHH YES!
This music makes me wanna give up the city slicker California life, get a big old plot of land out in northern Wisconsin, get a bunch of musical instruments in a barn, brew my own beer, then call up my friends to jam.
