Hipster 03:35


An artistic statement on night life in the modern world, with a slinky, searching vibe. Also includes a dub version, in tribute to the roots dub master, King Tubby.

With a similar vibe of other instrumental rock acts, such as Khruangbin, Thievery Corporation, and New Mastersounds, the Joe Olnick Band continues to evolve and adapt to modern times.

"Sometimes in the studio the band is just on fire, and in this case it was recorded in very high quality," says Olnick. "The hipsters of the world have had to adapt to the modern age with all of its challenges, and with night life currently shuttered due to the pandemic, the music really reflects that vibe of cool people searching for somewhere to go where they can be seen and enjoy themselves. Yet, that funky groove is still within them, just a little subdued. It's a fundamental part of who they are, going from club to club in normal times. The surreal world we live in now is mirrored in the music and accompanying videos."
