Ghost Funk Orchestra’s “A Song for Paul” is a dazzling experimental jazz record. The New York-based collective describes their sound as “blurring the line between soul and psychedelic,” and that rings true on A Song for Paul.Dedicated to group founder Seth Applebaum’s grandfather, the album opens with the soft, yet dizzying “Intro”. Elsewhere “Walk Like a Motherfucker,” is a groovy, old-school-sounding with blazing horns track that harkens back to the psychedelic music of the past. The titular song is a Latin-jazz influenced track with steady drums and piano. The closing “Outro” leaves listeners with an ambient track filled with muted guitar notes. Ghost Funk Orchestra is making music on their own terms and A Song for Paul is a solid entry point to their sound.


Ghost Funk Orchestra are a mystery. Plain and simple. Dirty, soulful production, verbed and fuzzed out guitars, mysterious vocals that feel like a lost score to a Quentin Tarantino film. The brainchild of one-man producer/musician/arranger Seth Applebaum, GFO is forging new territory and blurring the line between soul and psychedelic.
We are uber-proud to present their first full-length effort for our Karma Chief label imprint. This is just the tip of the iceberg for this group, already well into producing their follow up LP, this is a group we truly believe will become a prolific force in the modern psychedelic scene.
Written, arranged, and performed by Seth Applebaum
Released August 23rd, 2019
