Epically Cracked is among the vanguard of new artists fusing jazz, funk, rock and electronic music in exhilarating and musically rewarding ways. April Fletcher’s bass is deep in the pocket, hard-grooving and emotionally poignant by turns. Andre LaFosse marries his raw yet effortlessly melodic guitar with thrilling electronic interpolations for a boundary-breaking sound brushed with psychedelia. Lisa Edelman’s trumpet and flugelhorn ground the music in its jazz roots while daringly incorporating unique mind-bending distortion effects. The whole sound is punched along by Chuck van Haecke’s muscular yet intensely thought-through drumming. This is a crack unit with a fully realized musical conception, well worth your time to study, contemplate, and most of all, dig. – JazzTimes Magazine
