Album Description

The word "cover band" usually implies the verbatim regurgitation of pop songs from yesteryear. Terry Hsieh, band leader of The Spice Cabinet, has been trying to change the implication of that tired phrase. SpiceCab attacks the cover genre from the Jazz underworld, bringing a Jazz arranger's sensibility to modern pop music, mixing in heavy doses of electronic, funk, R&B, neo-soul and rock elements, all while keeping the feeling of the original, but with the intensity of a modern Jazz concert. "Full Metal Spice Packet" represents the best of the Beijing-based ensemble's "dance jazz" arrangements, full of cheeky references to other songs within the Jazz AND pop worlds, there's something for everyone. There's R&B, funk, bebop. fusion, rock, soul and electronic— hence the moniker for their style: "DeathBop". It's music that's fun to write, fun to play, and most importantly, fun to listen to. FMSP also features additional solo work by guest artists: Lawrence Ku, Aaron Janik, Alex Cummings, Toby Mak, and Kevin Sun. Enjoy the ride!
