Track of the Day: 'Golden Train'

Past TracksMusical chameleon Chris Glover has been a part of number of New York-area acts over the last fifteen years, but with Penguin Prison he's moving from sideman to the front of the stage. He's got a tight drummer and a keyboard whiz behind him. And from the sound of "Golden Train," Glover is really hitting his stride.

You don't need a degree in music criticism to hear the funk of prime-era Michael Jackson in this track, but you'll also catch bits of Miike Snow, Hot Chip, and perhaps even a bit of Metro Area drizzled over the top. In other words, this is a sleek funk machine. It will get you moving, and probably singing along by the third listen.

And should you wonder whether there is more to Penguin Prison than this one hot track, look no further than the fact the band is out of the road currently opening for a fellow who knows how to rip the roof of a club: mash-up deity Girl Talk. Now, that is a hot ticket!
