The title track from Raleigh Moncrief's Combed Over Chrome EP is one of my all-time favorite jams, and with this new Vitamins EP he dishes out an equally irresistible platter of abstract future funk.
The Sactown native (real name Robbie) is also a touring member of California's own internationally-renowned video-game covers band The Advantage (with whom he's currently touring out in Japan!). Moncrief also plays guitar in the band of fellow shred-virtuoso Marnie Stern. And he's got this awesome solo project called What's Up, which applies these experiences in The Advantage and with Marnie Stern to Moncrief's own compositions. Another source of inspiration (and source material) is Moncrief's engineering duties on the Dirty Projectors' latest album Bitte Orca
