On November 25th, Australian deep funk band The Bamboos put out their electric Live At Metro, a free four-track EP that captures the powerful live energy of the band. Released through the band’s facebook page, Live At The Metro sees the band as vocalists Kylie Auldist and Megan Washington captivate while they perform material from The Bamboos most recent album, Medicine Man, and a track from a prior release, 4.
Beginning with “I Got Burned,” a song originally fronted by Tim Rodgers on Medicine Man, Auldist sexily repackages the vocals as The Bamboos extend the song with a wicked guitar part from bandleader Lance Ferguson. After recasting, “Midnight,” a song originally song by Bobby Flynn on Medicine Man, Auldist shines again with a wonderful take of the horn-centric “Keep Me In Mind.” To cap the EP, The Bamboos brought out Megan Washington, who sung an enjoyable version of her own “Eliza.”
A great added bonus for those who enjoyed Medicine Man, Live At The Metro is available
