With a sound akin to the likes of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix and the experimentalism of Frank Zappa and Gorillaz, Bull Funk Zoo are something that Im very glad showed up in my inbox this morning.
The first track on the album entitled 'Dangerous Radio' is called 'Burnin' and is a fantastic opener for the album featuring a very weighty guitar riff and super fat drums that underpin the total sense of strength and power behind the music. The guitar solo in the latter part of the track really highlights the bands ability to accentuate and compliment their own music without deviating from the level of perfection that is so evident upon listening to them.
'Hangover' is one of my favourite tracks on the album. Beginning with a warmingly distorted rhodes piano riff that then continues throughout the track followed by an amusing and I'm sure, relatable to many, dialogue. Then you have a storming drum beat with some of the cleanest production I've ever heard on them. Topped by distorted vocals that help add the depiction of the brain fuzz feeling of a hangover, the track creates a vibe that you may not want to listen to whilst hungover but one that youll enjoy to no end whilst you feel alive.
My second favourite on the album has got to be 'whiskey', now I know this review may sound a bit too alcohol focussed, but it's strictly to do with the music! Again similar to the track 'Hangover' it is partly due to their integration of keys and synthesis. As well as that the angular and syncopated riffs are absolutely fantastic and just show the bands virtuosity. So many special effects and crazy shredding lines in this one, I absolutely love it!
