Piscean Group originally formed as part of an astrological union founding members and initial line up Sir Robert & Osunlade share. Since its conception, Osunlade has created an open coalition of musicians from his childhood home St Louis. As an open forum, the group has no real members and is a voice for all writers, musicians and performers alike. The non-credit of participants gives the groups identity a backseat to the sheer pleasure of the music.
Their self titled debut e.p. released on R2 Records was an intro of sorts to the group's intention. With their first full length project the approach is that of a soundtrack. With an open landscape and no actual movie to score, the group’s imagination was allowed to go from soft to hard groove, and throw in a few cameo performances from Osunlade and rising LA pianist Daniel Crawford.
This limited 7” contains the irrepressible funk swagger of “Saint Louis Strut”- swinging harder than a drunk at a barroom brawl with the tightest of grooves.
“Ferguson, Amurikah” on the b-side is a throbbing funk burner, bearing witness to events and contemplating the future. This track will be exclusive to this 7”.
