On a quest to describe the music of Jesse Fischer & Soul Cycle, it's best to drop the Brooklyn-based keyboardist and his band in the “uncategorizable” file. Is it, as the band’s name suggests, soul? Is it jazz? Is it rock? Well, ultimately, who gives a shit?
With seven original songs and three unexpected remakes (the 5th Dimension’s “Aquarius,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland,” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”), Fischer's latest album, Retro Future, drips with the far-flung sounds of the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, as well as 8-bit video-game noises, movie samples, analog synths, and more. The sonic result is a technical-yet-funky collection of cuts that are at times cerebral and other times danceable.
You can check out Fischer’s decidedly different style for yourself when he hits town this Friday, November 2, for the official Retro Future release party where he’ll perform live renditions of cuts from the new album and who knows what else.
$10-$12. 9 p.m. Apache Café, 64 3rd St.
