8. BADBADNOTGOOD, BBNG2
BADBADNOTGOOD cannot be stopped. This Toronto based trio of musicians is ostensibly a jazz combo, but their drums and piano are often so distorted that it sounds more like instrumental hip-hop. They are equal parts J Dilla and Ornette Coleman, creating challenging and abrasive jazz from songs borrowed from Kanye West, James Blake, and Tyler, the Creator. To call these songs covers would be to understate how truly weird they are. They’re almost unrecognizable. In one case, BBNG stretches out Kanye’s “Flashing Lights” to seven minutes and layers out furious piano runs that on first listen seem to evince hostility towards the instrument not heard since Jerry Lee Lewis. These are jazz musicians you would not want your kids around.


Love these kids from Toronto. It's great to see them get more recognition

Very much in fashion, so hopefully they'll get more attention.

I first heard them around 2011 or so, doing hip-hop covers as a jazz trio, like Electric Relaxation by Tribe Called Quest. Then they ended up getting the gig for Coachella as the house band for the hip-hop tent. Really talented kids

this is the one that hooked me

Some lovely stuff there, Nirvana, Radiohead and Jimi, and Eric Clapton for that part of the evening to waddle about the dance floor in drunken stupor with a handful of bum.
