The New Mastersounds have definitely been a band I’ve been paying more attention to in the past few year, and it’s a good time to be a fan of this band considering they’re about to release their new album, Breaks from the Border, due out to the public a week from this Tuesday on August 9. I was front row for their recent show here in SF at Brick and Mortar celebrating the album’s release, and the band tore through a set of funky tunes with plenty of new cuts that got me excited to hear the new tunes from the studio.
This new album is being recorded at Sonic Ranch and the band has been releasing videos showing some documentary style footage of the recording process and a bit more about the environment they immersed themselves in to get this funkiness down on tape. The third in the series was just posted the other day; check out 1, 2 & 3 after the jump. Good stuff.
