Made up of the Bay Area’s E Da Boss (of Myron and E on Stone’s Throw) and Trailer Limon, The Pendletons are a long-standing boogie-funk and modern soul project. The duo is here with a brand new release on Brooklyn tastemaker label, Bastard Jazz. Titled “Funk Forever,” the new single stands as the first cut from a soon-to-come EP of the same name due out on March 30th.
“Making ‘Funk Forever’ was a new process for us. Instead of starting with a beat, usually a sample by one of us, we went into the studio with musicians and recorded them playing together to get a more live sound. We wanted the energy of the musicians playing off each other to reach through. After we got a good framework, we went back and wrote the lyrics. Then we went through and added all the extra funky goodies, back-up vox, additional Synth horns and percussion. We are both really happy with the result and it’s fun to play it live.” -The Pendletons
After the release of the Funk Forever EP, the pair will gear up for the release of a full-length album to follow later in the year also via Bastard Jazz.
