Bifunkal is a two-piece band based in Chicago that believes in live looping, vocal bass, and the power of rock.
Triceratops is the first single off the new Bifunkal album entitled Animals. Triceratops features the guest vocal effects of My Boy Elroy (Digital Tape Machine, Liquid Soul).
Animals was tracked on two-inch tape in Austin, Texas by Matt Simon (Voxtrot, Tele Novella) at Eastern Sun Studios.
Animals was mixed by Chris Harden (The Pod, Ike Reilly Assassination) at IV Lab Studios in Chicago, IL, home of Umphreys McGee, Fallout Boy, Billy Corgan, Rachel Yamagata, Plain White T’s, and many other greats.
Bifunkal is Hershyl Edwards (drums, vocal bass, loops, vocals) and Jesse Crydeman (guitar, loops, vocals). Hershyl is a unique bird, in that he sings the bass lines (into an octave pedal) while playing drums. Sometimes he even loops the vocal bass, and then sings–all while playing drums.
