With the release of its sixth album, From the Corner to the Block, Galactic reaffirms its standing as one of the funkiest outfits in the known universe. Featuring a cherry-picked guest list of some of hip-hop’s most dynamic lyricists – including Juvenile, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Lyrics Born, Ladybug Mecca (Digable Planets), Mr. Lif, Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Vursatyl (Lifesavas), and Boots Riley (The Coup), the new album exposes Galactic’s organic grooves to an urban ear while still maintaining their essential funk aesthetic.
How odd that I didn’t realize that Stanton Moore was part of Galactic!
