Listen to the new song “The Getaway” here!
Review: As I await my new chili peppers album THE GETAWAY, on limited edition vinyl, I’m getting restless…Is it June yet?
No…..BUT…The Red Hot Chili Peppers did release a youtube audio track and sent out the mp3 of “The Getaway”! This 11th studio album, by the Californicated crew we all love, is a bit of a change to say the least. Many RHCP fans have wondered…”what would the Chili Peppers sound like with a different producer”? After making albums with Rick Rubin since 1991’s Blood Sugar Sex Magic, the RHCP have decided to branch out to producer, Danger Mouse (friend to the band and one time band mate to Josh Klinghoffer while playing with Gnarls Barkley)
Although I love Rick Rubin’s producing (System Of A Down, Danzig, Eminem, Slayer, etc.)…I am really happy to hear the peppers switch it up. This track has movement and is nasty in such a chill way. Funk flows from Flea like fluid fractals of fiery madness. His bass playing has amazed me since the early 90’s. Anthony really sounds awesome, and the vocals are fresh ta’ def. Josh sounds really comfy now on his guitar duties, but I may be biased because I’ve been a fan of his since the Bicycle Thief days. His drum, guitar and vocal work on John Frusciante’s solo albums are beyond inspiring, they are elevating. Chad Smith is on my top 5 drummers list, so of course I feel he’s holding it down nicely on drums. His hi-hat work on the track is worth a mention for sure. There’s a synth type part with a rotary effect on it that makes the whole track very unique. Overall, this song makes me want to blaze one, turn it up and take a drive in the summer time with the top down! Looks like the Chili Peppers aren’t done making hits just yet…Album drops officially on June 17, 2016. I highly recommend
