After garnering their third Austin Music Award last year, the band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic. They've performed at events including Bonnaroo, High Sierra Music Festival, Pickathon, FFFFest, Bear Creek Music Festival, Utopia Festival and Pachanga Fest, while regularly touring the U.S. Brownout's also served as a highly in-demand backing band for artists including Prince, Daniel Johnston, GZA and Bernie Worrell. The band released Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath Vol. II on October 28th via Ubiquity Records. The recording--the band's second collection of material by godfathers of metal Black Sabbath--includes reimagined versions of "Fairies Wear Boots," "Snowblind" and "Supernaught." The tracks "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and "Symptom of the Universe" features vocals by Ghostland Observatory's Aaron Behrens. Brownout has released four previous albums including Brownout presents Brown Sabbath (Ubiquity Records 2015) Homenaje (Freestyle Records 2008), Aguilas & Cobras (Six Degrees 2009) and Oozy (Nat Geo 2012). Their latest release, Over the Covers (Fat Beats 2017), was widely acclaimed by critics and heralds the next chapter for the band as it continues to evolve and explore new and funky musical realms. ABOUT MONEY CHICHA: Money Chicha is an Austin, Texas based group featuring members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout which performs a fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched and percussion-heavy style of music inspired by the sounds of Peru and Colombia in the 60s and 70s. This style of music, sometimes called "chicha" music, is known for its infectious Latin beat, its psychedelic, surf guitar pyrotechnics and its melodies influenced by the indigenous culture of the Andes mountains. The group's sound is derived from the exhilarating syncopations of congas, cowbell and timbales, the gritty tones of combo organs and vintage synthesizers, effects-laden guitar melodies, insistent basslines and a healthy dose of trippy effects. Money Chicha is a modern translation of this South American musical style interpreted by highly skilled veterans of America's most vibrant music town. In their capable hands, the "chicha" genre takes on a new and unique character, guaranteed to move one to both dance and listen, entranced by the undeniable rhythms and virtuosic displays of musicality.
