Immigrance, the new Snarky Puppy studio album, is all about movement. The idea here is that everything is fluid, that everything is always moving and that we’re all in a constant state of immigration, explains Michael League. Justin Stanton announced today that he will be releasing his solo debut album, Secret Place on May 3rd through GroundUP Music! The album features Robert Sput Searight, Maz, Mark Lettieri, Melany Watson, and Domenica Fossati. Tune in to Highbreedmusic - The Artists That Artists Love on 4/4 where he’ll be talking with Snarky Puppy cohort Maz about his record, as well as premiering the video to What Do You Want, the first single of the album.
Culcha Vulcha marks the first time Snarky Puppy has recorded in a studio in eight years. Between 2006's The Only Constant and this, the Texas-bred, Brooklyn-based collective issued a generous slate of live albums according to a single strategy: capturing a single dynamic performance and messing with it as little as possible. This date proves they can accomplish that in a studio, too. Culcha Vulcha was cut at Sonic Ranch Studios in Tornillo, Texas and in Brooklyn
Snarky Puppy released the debut album Live at Uncommon Ground in 2005. The band's first four albums were released independently, after which Tell Your Friends, groundUP, Family Dinner – Volume One, and We Like It Here were released by Ropeadope. The album We Like It Here was performed and recorded live in October 2013 at the artistic compound Kytopia in Utrecht, Netherlands. Their second release on the label, Culcha Vulcha (2016) earned the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, their third Grammy award. Four members are in the band Bokanté and four were in Banda Magda; both bands record for Snarky Puppy's groundUPmusic label. Former members Cory Henry and Robert Searight won Grammy Awards for work outside Snarky Puppy while they were in the group.

Culcha Vulcha is an album by American jazz fusion group Snarky Puppy that was released on April 29, 2016. The album includes performances by a number of musicians associated with the band and called "the Fam". The band's first studio album in eight years since Bring Us the Bright, it was recorded at the Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas near El Paso and Atlantic Sound Studios in Brooklyn, New York, by Nic Hard.
Culcha Vulcha is Snarky Puppy's first true studio record in many years, with no studio audience or guest-star collaborators. Given their work ethic, it's hard to imagine that League and the "family" would commit such a document to tape haphazardly; it certainly sounds more post-produced than their typical live-to-tape recordings. The intentional nature of the project seems to surface something more at the core of their ethos. At very least, Culcha Vulcha is big, rich and funky - maybe that's enough.
Stream Culcha Vulcha, a playlist by Snarky Puppy from desktop or your mobile device. The album is a slight departure for Snarky Puppy; darker, with elements of Rock along with brilliant flourishes of R&B, Funk, Soul, Jazz, Bossa Nova, electric Blues and more. Guitars cry, keyboards wail, all the while the percussion and bassline drive you forward. In a word, intoxicating. Scratch that: otherworldly. The New York Times has been bitten by the Snarky bug: A barnstorming, groove-centric instrumental act with a rabid fan base and a blithely unplaceable style. And if the name doesnt ring a bell, its probably just a matter of time.
