“Pounding drums and an intoxicating organ drone closing upon you like the wings of the night” – 20 Jazz Funk Greats

After wowing the world with their sensual hypno-jam second album Fabulous Diamonds II, Melbourne duo Fabulous Diamonds are taking off for a Stateswide tour with another two piece, high mystique NYC lo-fi love-rock duo Pigeons.

Plus they’re also playing Chapter Music’s official CMJ showcase in New York, organised in conjunction with awesome New Jersey label Underwater Peoples, alongside Crayon Fields, Guy Blackman and Underwater Peoples bands Andrew Cedermark, Air Waves and La Big Vic.

Released in June by Chapter Music, with a vinyl version emerging in August on Philadelphia label Siltbreeze, Fabulous Diamonds II put a stop to the band’s usual habit of posting bad reviews on their Myspace, simply because the international flood of reviews were embarrassingly positive.
