Medicine Man Merriweather

Australia’s highly successful funk-soul band The Bamboos are onto their fifth long-player, besides appearing on soundtracks to movies and TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty, since forming in 2001. Medicine Man, released this month, features guest vocalists Aloe Blacc, Tim Rogers, Megan Washington, Daniel Merriweather and Bobby Flynn, plus regular band member Kylie Auldist and Melbourne based Ella Thompson laying down lead vocals on a couple of tracks.
The first single is a double A-side. Australian rock-n-roll royalty Tim Rogers features on I Got Burned, and Aloe Blacc on Where Does The Time Go?. The latter is getting sufficient international airplay. Meanwhile a second video premiered this week. The track I Never has Daniel Merriweather on board. Daniel has been touring Down Under with Kimbra. Always good to hear another Merriweather even if it is no solo work, in bittersweet anticipation of a new album from the man himself. Tune in here for the latest video, and album playlist.
