The Bamboos have received critical acclaim across the board from Jazz, Funk and Hip Hop publications for their previous Tru Thoughts album 'Step It Up'. They are due to release their second album 'Rawville' this May. The Australian funk six piece are big funk collectors and inspired by artists such as The Meters, Mickey & the Soul Generation, Jimmy Smith and Reuben Wilson but have a contemporary Deep Funk sound too. 'Rawville' still embraces the deep raw organ based funk aesthetic of their album 'Step It Up', but it also embraces different flavors.'Rawville' is a lot more song-based than 'Step It Up'. The album is half vocal based tunes and half instrumental. Vocals include those from label mate Alice Russell as well as vocalists Kylie Auldist, Tyra Hammond (Opens Souls), Fallon Williams and Ohmega Watts (Ubiquity). The Bamboos took a larger horn section into the studio for this album, so the horns are thicker and more experimental in terms if harmonies. You will hear influences from the J.B's, Alice Clark, and early Kool & The Gang coming through on the horn arrangements.
