Album Notes
"a shape-shifting synthesizer Disney's Electrical Parade on acid"
-Wax Poetics

"Solid. With a name like Cheebacabra, how can you go wrong?"
-Urb Magazine

"funk-fusion at it's utmost finest"

"slick, fluid instrumental that juicy, bubble-butted zone between the porn-flick score and the blaxploitation-film soundtrack"
-The Stranger

"70's jazz-funk sieved through rap attitude of the 80's and 90's, all flashfried in idiosyncratic mythologies that seem informed by notions of the kung-fu mojo of blaxploitation, ethology's implications for human beings, we-come-from-Africa juju, space as final frontier fantasy"
-Earshot Jazz Magazine

From sinister to sexy, robotic to playful, the sound of "Exile In The Woods" is undeniably unique and unforgivingly funky. Tight drums consistently hold down these instrumental, analog synth-heavy grooves. Half of the album’s twelve musicians are credited with synthesizers, including bandleader/producer Cheeba, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Steve Moore (Sufjan Stevens), and Aja West (The Mackrosoft). A wide array of more organic instruments are featured as well, including trumpet, violin, sax, clavinet, guitar, and melodica. Also of note is Peter Scherr of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra on upright bass.

The first Cheebacabra album, “Metamorphosis”, was released in 2003 to critical acclaim. Filter Magazine placed it on a “Best Records of 2003” list and Nic Harcourt of KCRW spun it on his “Best of 2003” radio program. Now, returning with “Exile In The Woods”, The Cheebacabra continues on it’s path of releasing quality funk fusion music accompanied by beautiful, fantastical artwork. This time around, the cover painting is by world renowned zoologist/author Desmond Morris (“The Naked Ape”).

Recorded in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong.

Jean Pool

The Sausquach of funkonias' lounge cruise barge
It's bigfunk, halfman half buggabear,the missing link revealed at last,some kind of manape leftover from the past funked into the now neo synthno chunk jazzdom of electroplated phatass pulse party pump. Cheebaca what? Yeah baby!
