Here’s something we’ve been waiting for for quite some time and it’s now up for pre-order over on the F-Spot Records bandcamp. Of course we’re talking about the Bombillas and what a group to release a full length for in their sea of seven inches we’ve been getting for years. The Bombillas released two early early sevens on the label so if you were lucky enough to scoop them up you’re ahead of the game. This self titled long player is inspired by world funk sounds that include music that was coming out of the Middle East and Africa during the 1970s. These four talented cats out of the City of Angels (Tyler Nuffer (Guitar / Lap Steel / Pedal Steel), Josh Wiener (Bass Guitar), David Celia (Keyboards / Percussion), and Michael Duffy (Drums / Percussion) have the formula down for bringing this kind of funk and sunshine to your ears. If you’re not familiar with this type of music, dig their cover of the Ethiopian classic “Sintayehu” by Hailu Mergia or their reworking of “Dance of Maria” by Elias Rahbani. This record is a melting pot of global funk and sounds that are more than pleasing to your ears. Bringing in the hot heat with them on these nine tracks, this Lp sits nicely along with your Latin, Brazilian, or African funk records. It’s a record you can play just about anywhere, and if it doesn’t put a smile on your face, you have to think twice about that. This is a great late entry for one of the best records of the year here at FMF. An updated sound of music from years gone by, they are careful to not take away the original feeling of the tracks but yet not afraid to throw in some Bombillas charm in there as well. Listen to a few tracks below and pre-order from F-Spot after the stream.
