About Karl Denson
For nearly three decades, Karl Denson has been electrifying adoring audiences around the world. He was a member of Lenny Kravitz’s band and garnered critical acclaim as one of the founders of boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars. More recently, Denson joined Slightly Stoopid, while his primary creative vehicle, Tiny Universe, has become a major festival and club attraction. All of which have established his reputation as a modern day soul-funk icon. Denson delivers the latest addition to his oeuvre, a relentless 13-track dance floor grenade entitled, New Ammo.
The album is his debut on Slightly Stoopid’s record label, Stoopid Records, and his first recording since 2009 with the Tiny Universe. Alongside Denson originals like the title track and“Everybody Knows That,” which have become fan favorites from his live sets, he offers up searing versions of “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes, “Hang Me Up To Dry” by Cold War Kids and “Sure Shot” by The Beastie Boys. He’s joined by a number of special guests, including Mike Dillon, The Cosmic Horns and Nicki Bluhm who adds vocals to the first single “My Baby.” In Denson’s own words: “We’ve finally figured out how to capture in the studio what the Tiny Universe does live. We move around a lot musically, but this record reflects who we are as a band and where we’re headed with our music!”
