Damn, I am really enjoying the new album by Seattle jazz-funk duo Cheebacabra. The brothers Cheeba and Aja just released their second opus, Exile in the Woods, and it is truly a masterwork of tight drumming, synth-heavy grooves, tasty samples and weird robotic interjections, with more than a little Parliament and Herbie Hancock thrown into the mix. What year was this thing recorded? It's truly bizarre and heroically funky. Listen to a few selections on their myspace page, or pick up a copy of the CD for a mere $10.

Please consider, as exhibit A, this short video for their song "Zagreb."
