Pax Instrumentals EP

by Youngblood Brass Band



JUST RELEASED: Instrumental versions of the 5 hip-hop tracks from Pax Volumi (our previous Tru Thoughts full-length), a digital-only EP called, of course, 'Pax Instrumentals'. These tracks were crafted as deeply as our non-instrumental tunes, and we're excited to have folks hear more of what's going on in the music itself, since our ears naturally treat vocal tunes and instrumental tunes differently. Some of these were only available as b-sides to 12″ singles, so we hope this handful of bangers gets you through another day of quarantine in the loudest way possible.

The sheet music for these is available too! We're trying to release as much stuff as possible during the pandemic... new youtube channel, masterclass videos, more sheet music, big band arrangements, as well as being available for lessons/commissions/custom arrangements, with proceeds going to members... check the full list of new things here: linktr.ee/youngbloodbrassband
