Album Review: Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, The Serpent’s Mouth

Seamlessly following up on the release of their debut album, 55, German-based Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band return with their sophomore title, The Serpent’s Mouth and in the literal sense, it is banging! Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band who have defined their trademark sound by playing renditions of classic tracks (using the steel drum primarily) bring the heat even harder on this new release. Don’t get it twisted it though they are more than a cover band. Bacao’s penchant in transforming tracks from the likes of Mobb Deep, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Amerie, Michael Jackson, and others into new vibes that still hold on to that classic feel, sneak up on you and revitalize those musical experiences. The Serpent’s Mouth is the latest banger released on the Brooklyn label Big Crown Records. Check out the track “Burn” below and go get your copy after listening digitally, on vinyl or CD here.
