"Night Walker" by Ghost Funk Orchestra
BTR Live Studio | ep665.5 | Dec 4, 2017
Seth Applebaum (also of Brooklyn psych-surf freaks, The Mad Doctors) is apparently pretty prolific when it comes to experimental, groovy, weirdo jams. Ghost Funk Orchestra is more no-wave than the funk in their name may imply, but either way, they’re definitely all party. The massive band crammed themselves, horns and all, into Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this lively session.

GFO’s Demos & Outtakes is available now.

Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
