In-Tune: Zonk

"This trip-hop-rock band is rooted in diverse musical experiences and influences, urban sounds, and San Francisco. The ZONK foursome includes female Singer/Songwriter McFiendish, Producer/Musician/Sound Designer Dave L, Guitarist/Bassist/Harmonica player Uncle Bergie, and Scratch DJ/Mixologist DJ Red5. Sometimes likened to “Beck meets Portishead”, ZONK is a modern melding of styles united by a distinctive, sultry voice and thoughtful songwriting." -Zonk

A soulful mix of diverse styles and talents which works well.

Also of note is band member Dave L's electronica project "or-if-is" which is equally enjoyable
