The Bamboos Step It Up
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: Tru Thoughts-Ubiquity
It‘s been a few years since The Bamboos made ripples in the throwback soul scene with their two powerful 7 platters. Back to trouble the waters once again, The Bamboos shoot rapid-fire soul from the hip on their long-awaited debut album. Wedged somewhere between the Muscle Shoals sound and The JB‘s, this Australian sextet flosses through 11 slabs of lo-fi soul like nobody‘s business. Blue-eyed soul siren Alice Russell spices up the stew on both the title track and their take on Afronaught‘s intergalactic boogie excursion "Transcend Me." Who knew the outback was so funky?
