If you have yet to see a Consider the Source show, consider yourself too far from the source. CTS brings a style of instrumental dance music to the table that they can proudly call their own. Their mind-blowing live show will undoubtedly take you on an auditory journey to a place unique from any other band.
This 3-piece band from New York could best be described as heavy-hitting psychedelic prog-funk laced with a Claypool/Wooten/Marcus Miller bass twang and Middle Eastern influenced fusion guitar slaying on a half-fretless, double-neck axe. Needless to say, their sound packs a powerful, yet technically refined punch from start to finish.
Their 3rd album, That’s What’s Up, was released late in 2010 after the band wrapped up a tour in Israel, and can be downloaded directly from the band’s website considerthesourcemusic.com. Check out a multitude of live recordings at archive.org/details/ConsidertheSource
Consider the Source is a show that should not be missed, however you should be prepared to reassemble your melted facial structure by the end of the night.
