XL Recordings did itself a service when it signed London duo Jungle back in 2014. Jungle dapples you with sunlit, tropical sounds while sharing an energetic live set. Some bands are best experienced in person. Jungle seems to cover that territory with a certain amount of effortless ease that calls back to founders Tom McFarland and Josh Lloyd-Watson’s funky, mid-tempo grooves, which teeter between modern and ’70s-style funk. The duo makes the kind of music that infects your joints, turning your elbows and knees into rhythmic pools. Read more>>> Jungle performs with Makeness at 7 p.m. at 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $25.
