Dancin' Into the Weekend

The Future Kind - The Devil Is Gonna Get You

Today I wanted to pick something with a "get down" feel to take into the weekend, and this selection from Dave Hamilton's Detroit Funk will suit the bill. The Future Kind's "The Devil Is Gonna Get You" is a fun funky romp built around Sly Stone's "Thank You" riff. At first it almost sounds like either a funky gospel record or something along the lines of Curtis Mayfield's "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go" but then the group starts clowning at the end ("What are you doing here?" "I *knew* she was gonna be here!") and you realize that it's all just a funky good time.
