Woolly Mammals is an alternative soul quartet from Brooklyn, NY. Since their debut release, "Cheap Talk", in January 2017, the band has received praise from Rolling Stone France, No Treble Magazine, Live for Live Music, and Nextbop. With the recent release of their debut live EP, When You Get This, in January 2018, the band continues to deliver their own hauntingly original brand of techno-funk, layering a talking bass vocoder on top of soaring synthesizers, swampy subs, and acid-jazz backbeats.
Since their formation in 2015, the band has performed at some of New York's top small venues, including Knitting Factory Brooklyn, Mercury Lounge, and Highline Ballroom.
Based in NYC since 2012, Valipala (formerly known as With Snack) tips their hats to the great groove makers of yesteryear while continuing to rethink modern R&B with a union of funk, jazz, and progressive rock. Known for their virtuosic arrangements and animated live shows, a night with Valipala is bound to somehow leave you both exhausted and energized. Valipala’s debut EP, Mango City, will be available October 2017.
The band consists of Lauren Scales (vocals), Evan Lane (trumpet), Aviv Goldgeier (keyboard), Nick Dunston (bass), and Matti Dunietz (drums).
