Rise Of The East


RELEASE DATE: 2/18/2015

SFSE get back to the essence on this “Rise of The East” 45. It’s a cinematic stroll through SoCal as the lads get smooth and funky in a soundtrack of their own creation. What we dig about TSFSE is that you can picture any of their outputs as a back drop to Hollywood film, the music cresting as the protagonist gets the bad guy’s money, kills bad guy, and drives off into the sunset in their ’68 Jag out in the desert. You dig? Because we do. They continue to stay in their own funky and soulful lane on this track. The flip, “Sunny Santa Ana” is a mellow gold trip: Latin tinged horns and guitar with a tropical flavor, slow riding you out with B-Side fun. It also combines a surf flavor, and reminds us of our early days when Pops used to take us on road trips playing surf music compilations on cassette from sun up to sundown in his ’69 Chevy step side.- Flea Market Funk
