With an assist from Evangeline, Vulfmon's new single is scary good

Every Monday, 88Nine music director Erin Wolf shares a sonic gem she found using her nearly 20 years of new-music exploration experience. You can hear all her discoveries at 2 p.m. every Sunday on What’s All This: Adventures in New Music

Jack Stratton is most often recognized for his work with the Michigan-based funky soul-pop band Vulfpeck. He’s one of the founding members, playing keys, drums and guitar. His offshoot project, Vulfmon, recently enlisted the sweet-voiced Evangeline to take the spotlight on a fresh song called “Got to Be Mine” and kick things up a notch with her breathy popstar appeal that’s perfectly suited for the playful lightness of the song.

The orchestral and woodwind-laden funkiness of “Got to Be Mine” fits naturally with Evangeline’s delivery, making it a totally fun, fluffy and flute-y jam. You can find it later this year on the forthcoming record from Vulfmon called dot on his very own Vulf Records label, as well as right here in this episode, then be sure to check out a fresh batch of tunes on What’s All This: Adventures in New Music at 2 p.m. every Sunday on 88Nine.
