Earlier this month, Vulfpeck released their long-awaited, eighth studio album, Hill Climber. The funk quartet has consistently released a collection of studio recordings every year since their official inception in 2011. Prior to Hill Climber’s release, Vulfpeck slowly released music videos for “Lost My Treble Long Ago”, “Soft Parade”, “It Gets Funkier IV”, “Lonely Town”, “Darwin Derby“, and “Love Is A Beautiful Thing“–giving fans a taste of what was to come.“Darwin Derby” written by vocalist and guitarist Theo Katzman and frequent collaborator and vocalist Antwaun Stanley, also features guitarist Cory Wong and pianist Joey Dosik in addition to the usual suspects Jack Stratton on drums, Joe Dart on bass, and Woody Goss on keys. With a chorus of “Gotta be an early birdy if you want that worm!” and animal claymation coloring the screen, this groovy number will 100% inspire you to get out of bed in the morning. So, “shine up your fins and show your teeth. Shake off your skin and clap your feet! Open your wings and start to fly, it’s a beautiful day to be alive.” Alright!Today, Vulfpeck has shared a tutorial video for “Darwin Derby”, as Jack Stratton gives an in-depth musical breakdown of the tune, working through Dart’s bass lines, followed by Wong and Katzman’s different guitar licks. Watch Vulfpeck’s new tutorial video for “Darwin Derby” below:Vulfpeck – “Darwin Derby” (Tutorial)[Video: Vulf]Hill Climber showcases the diverse talents of the band as they continue to trade instruments, feature artists, and allow for Theo Katzman–who remains a core piece of the Vulfpeck instrumental section while also displaying his innate ability to sing and write songs– to deliver his own originals in a capacity that otherwise has not been as extensively explored by Vulfpeck as a band.Vulfpeck’s new studio release includes ten total tracks and features special guest collaborations with vocalist Monica Martin, vocalist Mike Viola, and multi-instrumentalist Louis Cole (KNOWER), and features vocals from Theo Katzman and Antwaun Stanley.To stream Hill Climber on Spotify, click here.
