This is the second album by The Limboos, "Limbootica!" where the band continues its journey to the heart of the rhythm, a journey to the center of the best roots music, investigating and growing at every turn of the road.
Produced by Mike Mariconda. Something unusual and unpredictable always seems to happen right under our very noses.
And on such a rare occasion you could brag about colliding with a group as magnificent as The Limboos.
They are unusual because you usually cannot hear a current R&B band with so much musical talent and, in turn, sound different from all the rest.
And unpredictable because their knowledge and devotion to the greats of the genre is reflected in all of their songs, ALL originals written by them.
And inside them is a special secret gift that combines rhythm and elegance to the nth degree.
The Limboos emerged out of nowhere four years ago. Within a few weeks, they recorded a single, took the road and have not stopped gyrating and motorvating.
The band has been tightening up their "Exotic Rhythm & Blues" around the continent with a show that is not easily forgotten.
Their first LP "Space Mambo" (Penniman Records, 2014) caught everyone by surprise - the media included - and their songs and live shows engulfed all audiences, adding fans beyond the rock and roll circuit.
In this second LP, "Limbootica!", the band continues its journey to the heart of the rhythm, a journey to the center of the best roots music, investigating and growing at every turn of the road.
To this masterful Rhythm and Blues formula with Latin influences, here they add a few shots of gospel and swing ("No Troubles", "I Don't Buy It" or the hypnotic "Been Whole a Lot Time") , a clever mix of tropical and soul ("Lies"), and their underivative tribute to the Brazilian Bossa, the exquisite "Blue Dream." They can be channelling Cuba in "Crazy Rumba" and also have you stumbling down the crawfish stinking streets of New Orleans, exhaling rum while hugging a streetlight and trying to find your wallet on "Calypso Drunk".
"Limbootica!" it's going to make you talk. Then it's gonna make you shut up and listen to the magnificent songs and the incontestable musical style of these twenty-somethings, then add the scathing production of Mike Mariconda for the final knock-out punch.
A more realized document and executed with even more conviction than in the previous disc, incorporating new instruments and extending the horizon of each subject with arrangements you just don't see nowadays.
The Limboos are different. Talent, tireless dedication and some real old school class are their weapons.
And with "Limbootica!" there are many, many more who will join the army of followers who can no longer live without them.
Get it before it gets you.
