Imagine Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin’,” Lil Jon’s “Get Low,” and “Root Down” by the Beastie Boys…played in the style of folk music. Awesome, right? Putting a folk spin on classic rap and hip-hop songs is exactly what local bands will be doing this Sunday at The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor at the 4th annual FOLK THE POLICE showcase.

Welcome to this edition of the Detroit Proud Weekly Playlist! We’ve dug deep into the alleys of Detroit to find you the best of the known – and the unknown – this city has to offer!
This week’s playlist is loaded with enough singer-songwriters to satisfy even the hungriest of musical hearts – every style from country to Americana to pop – there’s a track for everyone on the list! We’ve also thrown in a few indie-rock bands to balance things out, and a few Detroit old-time favorites, too.
Their sound is not like anything you’ve heard before – especially not here in Detroit. They blend together, in perfect harmony…a mash-up of ‘70s rock and ‘60s pop, maybe a bit of a psychedelic flair, with goofy lyrics and captivating guitar melodies. Imagine if you took the gritty-bluesy rock from The Black Keys, blended in the resonance of the album Disraeli Gears by Cream (make sure you give “Sympathetic Strings” a listen), and then topped it with a poppy beat similar to The Zombies. To be fair, that only paints a small picture of who The Oscillating Fan Club are – one of Metro Detroit’s most promising up-and-coming bands.
