Inside the new Galactic album YA-KA-MAY


New Orleans is a city defined by its unique and colorful history. It's for that reason that most tend to view the place as something of a musical museum while ignoring the town's vibrant and innovative new music. In New Orleans, the hip-hop at the heart of today's culture emerged from an energetic, highly eroticized and occasionally gender-bending music called "bounce". ...

Editorial Reviews

As a follow-up to what may be the definitive New Orleans tribute album, Galactic present a live album that is both a continuation of the diverse musical worlds they explored on YA KAMAY, and a searing document from one of the great live bands of our time. Recorded at the legendary New Orleans club Tipitina s with a host of guests - some like Big Freedia carrying over from YA KA MAY, others like Cyril Neville and Trombone Shorty new to the crew The Other Side of Midnight: Live in New Orleans is an important summation of a band and its intense relationship with its fabled hometown. Only in New Orleans could a night this funky, sweaty and wild also be so profound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Galactic at its most collaborative July 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is Galactic's first official live album in a decade, though countless board tapes and CD-Rs have crossed fans' hands in the interim. As it turned out, 2001's We Love `Em Tonight: Live at Tipitina's signaled a change of course: Singer Theryl "Houseman" DeClouet was soon to go, and from then on Galactic was less of a self-contained band, opening the lineup to a wide cast of singers, rappers, DJs and horn players. They also stopped making studio albums that sounded anything like their live shows; by the time of last year's Ya-Ka-May, looping and sampling were fully integrated into both the performance and the songwriting.

The Other Side of Midnight--like its predecessor, a single CD recorded at Tipitina's--finds Galactic at its most collaborative. And it makes a strong case for the band as a New Orleans Wrecking Crew, able to play vintage funk with Cyril Neville, funky bounce with Big Freedia, street parade with the Soul Rebels Brass Band, and out-there horn jazz with Trombone Shorty and Corey Henry. What you get here that was missing on the last few studio discs is the sound of Galactic as a flesh-and- blood band. The Big Freedia track "Double It" substitutes Stanton Moore's supple drums for the studio version's loops, Rich Vogel's mighty Hammond for the synth whistle, and frantic live energy for the programmed grooves. And it draws a livelier performance out of Freedia, who seems poised to be the first mainstream success out of the once-underground sissy bounce circuit.

On the other hand, the opening "Gossip" is completely faithful to the studio version, which was cut four decades ago as Cyril Neville's one and only solo single. Neville matches his furious delivery on the single, getting extra mileage out of the "funky, funky" chant at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars fan of Ya Ka May? August 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
this album is truly geared to those who have purchased and enjoy the previous Ya Ka May album. both albums showcase the versitility of Galactic as musicians- while some of the genres in these albums are not my favorite and won't be on my playlists... they are both good albums- but would not be my recommendation for those Galactic novice fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! May 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I recently just saw Galactic for the first time at Wanee Music Festival this year. They performed an amazing late night set on the last night. This album is performed LIVE which are always the best. If you are debating on making this purchase, you should definitely buy it. You will not be disappointed with your decision!

This album is so good it makes me want to hop in a plane, fly to New Orleans, and go straight to Tipitina's. Galactic brings the heat in this funky, live show. Highly recommend it.
