FREAK MOTIF

ACROSS THE NATION, SELF-RELEASED

Freak Motif is an all-original Alberta legend, spawned of the Calgary hotbed of summer festivals and underground venues, such as the sorely missed Area in Inglewood. Whether grooving on the the freaky days of Halloween Howl, Freak Motif put the funk in many of the now-defunct best performance venues in the city, such as the Uptown Stage and Screen. With an ambient and unfailing brass section to boot, Freak Motif features some wicked percussive flavours, led by drum-kit master Victor Ulloa, often seen fronting the seven-to-nine-piece group. The group is also led by guitarist Stu Wershof, who is known to put on a just-right-feeling show of his own with loop pedals and backing vocals, under a fine touch of expert electronic sweetness. Danceable funk vibes swing and rattle in the oft-touring group, who travail national Canadian circuits with a special namesake.

The latest release Across the Nation, available for “name your price” on Bandcamp, is an absolute must-have for Calgary music lovers. The EP is an extraordinary example of indie production at its finest — the cool sound hits all the right buttons. Dedicated to “all the musicians who have rocked with us and who continue to inspire us,” the group’s sincere focus and impressive charm can add a little something to any mix. Whether into reggae, trance, hip hop, world, funk, jazz or Afro-beat, Freak Motif’s newest release provides just the right feel for everyone from the newbie listener to the touring groupie.
