I feel like we’ve been blessed with a lot of great jazz/funk this year. Seems like it’s become a VERY cool thing to post about on blogs + listen to in playlists. Not gonna lie, I’m in that group! I’ve been looking for music for my October Recommended Albums post, and while I don’t think this new album from Melbourne’s Surprise Chef will make it in, I wanted to highlight it because it’s really really well done. Super tight rhythm section, awesome percussion, bulletproof mellotron, and a great guitar tone. These guys have it going on. 70s jazzfunk that feels like a score to a movie that you NEED to see.
You can check the whole album out on their Bandcamp HERE. They released another album earlier this year I haven’t checked out yet too, so y’all can beat me to it.
