Jumbonics Talk to the Animals

Ditching their predominantly instrumental productions for a more song-based, vocal-led album, Jumbonics welcomes vocalist Norman Anderson on their sophomore effort for Tru Thoughts. The addition of Anderson's vocals puts them in a similar vein to Plant Life, showing their shared love of organ-driven, '60s soul. Although a bit sugary, their signature soulful and jazzy punch still shines through. It's their instrumental tracks that steal the show here, proving that they haven't lost their ability to combine disco strings and funk drums with a b-boy aesthetic specially tailored to wreak havoc on the dancefloor.
