Check out Paul’s sexy new Farfisa and his sensitive man music. Don’t worry, he also delves into the darker side with what he calls increasingly irritating sounds, although they sound better and better to me, so I don’t know what to say about that!
Seriously though, this is one hell of a great video if you didn’t get that from the title. There is like math and and science and history and stuff, and super extra awesome bonus points for including the cat!
If you don’t know about the Budos Band, please check them out. I was witness to their sheer funkiness a few years ago when I saw them in Brooklyn open up for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Their set was phenomenal. Check out this video from their performance this summer in Chicago’s Grant Park.
Check out this stellar old Farfisa Drum Machine video demo from your wonderful German friends at AnalogAudio1. Another one that I have never heard of. I bet this one never made it over to the states.
Playing around the Farfisa “Melodic Rhythmer” CER-60. It’s a very rare analogue drumbox from the seventies. Also known as “GOYA Melodic Rhythmer”. There are CANCEL tabs for several sounds: CYMBAL, CLAVES, COWBELL, BASSDRUM. With these tabs you can mute them.
This box has a funny design, it looks like a guitar amp. There is no speaker inside. It’s also perfect for your next prank with a guitar player 😉
Granted the keyboardist plays an Elka organ, not a Farfisa, Los Peyotes from Argentina should be on your radar. Their live set looks amazing, there are plenty of videos on youtube for your review. Here is my personal favorite.
