Dumpstaphunk – Where Do We Go From Here

Dumpstaphunk announces their new album “Where Do We Go From Here”, set to release on April 23, 2021. Furthermore, this release marks the band’s first full length album in seven years. As well as undeniably the most powerful and politically pointed of their career. Previously released singles include “Justice 2020,” recently called one of the “Best Songs of 2020” by the New York Times.

Which also features Chali 2na and Trombone Shorty. Be sure to check out the contemplative title-track “Where Do We Go From Here”. Needless to say, the record is a sharply relevant statement, even more-so than the group anticipated. During their writing and recording sessions just prior to the devastating events of last year. 

Meanwhile, the band’s arsenal of classic and modern influences can be heard throughout the new album, a distinctive mix of genuine New Orleans funk, old school R&B and guitar fueled modern rock; from the slap-bass rave “Make It After All” to the band’s contemporary renderings of NOLA R&B rarities (the 1975 Blackmail gem “Let’s Get At It”) and early Seventies classics (Sly and the Family Stone’s “In Time”). Even more, “United Nations Stomp.” packs a powerful punch which is a cover of Buddy Miles.’ Including searing guitar solos from special guest, and rising blues guitar phenom Marcus King.
