So I think I've found a lot of excellent funk bands over the last couple of months, but I think I've realized that I'm more interested in bands you might describe as "Modern Funk".

Kind of like the Chili Peppers, but not.
Can anyone point me in the direction of some of these types of bands?
Jamiroquai would probably be your best bet...

You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine

When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.
