CMJ Artist Spotlight: Foul Weather

Foul Weather is a space jazz band from Boise, Idaho that recently hit the road with Youth Lagoon on a Northwest mini-tour. The trio creates a cosmic storm that transports the listener through the loungey, slinky Sixties and the freaky new wave synths found deep in the Eighties. The band consists of Jeremy Stewart, Danny Kerr and Logan Hyde. The trio features Stewart’s churning keys paired with Kerr and Hyde’s afrobeat/jazz-informed rhythm section.

“Youth Lagoon guitarist Logan Hyde’s swift, muscular drumming provided propulsion for Daniel Kerr’s weaving basslines and Jeremy Stewart’s fluid, melodic synthesizer solos. The group’s smooth melodies and mildly funky grooves built in intensity as the set progressed.”Boise Weekly

These Boise-based instrumental space aliens have been busy this year — they debuted their work at a live show with Haunted Summer in January, played Treefort 2015, opened for Gardens & Villa this Spring, plus a string of dates with Youth Lagoon and they released their first album Soft Opening (WavePOP Records) in August.

Have a listen to the Foul Weather tunes below and fall in love with this modern take on psychedelic jazz, then come to Cameo Gallery on 10/14 for the Boise & Friends official CMJ showcase — they go on at 8:00pm ET. Invite your friends to the party and you can easily pick up an advance ticket for only $8 if you’re not rocking the CMJ badge.
