1. WATCH: Tony Cook ft. DâM-FunK – “What’s On Your Mind” (Music Video).

    Being followers of the Galactic Funk Federation , we’re not quite sure how we missed this splendid new animated video from funky drummer Tony Cook featuring DâM-FunK . (By gosh the Internet is quite a busy place!) Directed and edited by Alex Saylor with animation and original artwork by Matt Rowland for Liger Vision Media, “What’s On Your Mind” is appropriately, playfully thought bubble heavy. Yet it also finds room to incorporate a horny cowboy, funky robots, folks doing The Robot, and some cool vintage footage of TC behind his kit (amongst other stuff). For more fun n’ funk, consult Cook’s recordings with James Brown during the Godfather’s disco years, and the electro-boogie-funk classic, “On the Floor (Rock-It).” And, of course, his latest album, Back to Reality , which is available via our peeps at Stones Throw Records .
