You already know we love Elastic Bond, don't you? I mean, we compared them to the Fugees passed through a cafetera and spiked with psychedelics a few months back. We dubbed them Best Funky Fusion Band Even Your Mom Would Like in our 2007 Best Of Miami. What more do you need to know? Do we really need to keep singing their praises?
Perhaps not. But I'm doing it anyway, if for no other reason than it's nice to be reminded now and again that you're loved. At least that's what my therapist says.
Elastic Bond blend electronica with Latin and urban sounds, providing lush and sumptuous grooves caressed by singer Sofy Encanto's smooth-as-silk vocals -- the ideal soundtrack for a hell of a good time. And in case you were unaware, the songstress, who also partakes in the Monkey Village collective, does it up solo too, doing loungey neo-soul some serious justice. For a chance to check out both acts in tandem, head Upstairs at The Van Dyke tonight. It's free...minus whatever damage you do at the bar.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
