Since the release of Big Mean Sound Machine's fourth album Runnin' For The Ghost, released in April on Peace & Rhythm (North & South America) and Blank Slate (Europe & Asia), the band has continued touring relentlessly, winning new fans every time out with their avant-afro-psych-funk. The album has gotten a lot of radio play and excellent support from publications & blogs such as Downbeat, Afropop Worldwide, Okay Player, Global A Go-Go, Afrobeat Blog, Funkish, Grateful Web, Brooklyn Vegan and more. Word on the street is that this is one of critic's favorite albums of the year.
We're also pleased to announce the third annual Big Mean BBQ, August 26th! It takes place at Grassroots Festival Off-Site Campgrounds at 3150 Agard Road in Trumansburg, New York. There will be a full 24 hours of music from some of our favorites including Driftwood, Thunder Body, Mosaic Foundation, The Blind Spots, late night with Buffalo Zydeco (Donna the Buffalo) and DJ Gourd and more! And of course Peace & Rhythm will also be there, with DJs Andujar & Bongohead spinning P&R records from an Airstream DJ booth. Ithaca Beer Co will be there and the place is going to be bonkers!
