Nomo Tomorrow

Here's something interesting for you: Nomo. They are a group of musicians out of Michigan with a rhythmic and infectiously danceable sound that fuses Afrobeat, free jazz, funk, electronic dance music and other elements into a highly entertaining mix.

Nomo has been generating tons of much-deserved hype since releasing a new album (Ghost Rock) in June of this year, from being featured in Rolling Stone to receiving praise from the likes of Fader/XLR8R/Pitchfork, to performing their outstanding live show alongside names such as Earth, Wind & Fire and Radiohead. With eight people on stage pouring out this unique, high-energy brand of music, this is really something to see.

Nomo are currently on a nationwide tour in support of the new record, and they will make a stop in Austin at the Emo's lounge tomorrow night. For day trippers, Nomo plays Waterloo Records tomorrow at 5pm. Check out a track from Ghost Rock below, and head to the myspace to see their tour schedule.
