The Stepkids – The Stepkids

The first track off of the debut LP from Connecticut’s The Stepkids features a comically low baritone voice delivering the line “Sneaking your way to the heart” followed immediately by the prepubescent wail of “BraiiinnnNINJAH!”  It is totally ridiculous, but you can’t help but listen on.

The Stepkids remind me of the funk and soul music from one of those blaxploitation films of the 1970s, and they do it so well that you could call this album funxploitation.

It’s true that other bands have tread the same water, but The Stepkids craft psychedelic funk from another era, and it is groovy, baby.
