‘Medicine Man’ is The Bamboos’ fifth album, out 4th June on Tru Thoughts. A revelatory, forward-looking record, with guests including Aloe Blacc, Daniel Merriweather and Megan Washington alongside the powerhouse stylings of regular singer Kylie Auldist, this stunning LP marks another twist in the tale for Australia’s kings of the groove. Masterfully blending blues, pop, soul and psychedelia influences with fresh ideas and stellar performances, they have forged a multi-layered pop sound they can truly call their own.
An upfront taste of the album came in December 2011, with the limited edition release of “The Wilhelm Scream” feat. Megan Washington on The Bamboos’ 10th Anniversary 7”; this soul-gospel reinvention of James Blake’s dubstep ballad won over tastemakers including Rob da Bank (BBC R1), Steve Lamacq (6Music) and John Kennedy (XFM). Next up, the first official single on 21st May will be the summery and laid-back “Where Does the Time Go?” featuring the inimitable Aloe Blacc; this digital double A-side also brings the snaking, swampy guitar groove of “I Got Burned”, with vocals from rock ‘n’ roll royalty Tim Rogers of legendary Australian band You Am I. The early Australian release is already a smash, with national radio playlist additions including Triple J, and early support for both tracks from BBC 6Music’s Nemone, Don Letts and Craig Charles is bringing the new sound to the UK fans.
