    Ok guys, I know there are tons of "Listen to my band!" threads, but we're promoting our album and I figured what better way to advertise than with the fine people on Talkbass? Still there? Good. The music is progressive jazz/rock and the band is The Hypsys (Hip + Gypsys= Hypsys). Hope you enjoy!!

    Really thanks for posting this! I'm going to show your stuff to my brother, a guitar player. He's into the jazzier realm, and is struggling to play more tastefully. I think he can learn a thing or two from you guys!
     
  5. Man... DRay...That is some VERY GOOD STUFF! I don't remember enjoying a 'listen to my band' link this much in an awfully long time. I'll be checking out iTunes...

    your band is awesome. your bass playing sounds really good too! i dig the tone as well. keep it up, man
     
  12. You guys sound really tight. Good tunes, too. You sound a little like a local band around here that we've played with, but with a stripped down lineup and more energy. Good stuff. Bass playing was dead on.

    feel free to check out my thread if you want, eh? eh?

    Thanks man! I checked out your band as well, really tight sound. Love the bass tone too. The tracking video was a nice touch too.
