Funk, jazz, soul, country, a bit of hillbilly… Cookin’ on 3 Burners has always been one of those bands that eschews categorisation. And so it is with their sixth LP, Blind Bet.
There’s a sense that the band have reached their highest point yet with this release, which is packed with organ and guitar-driven jams that really draw the listener in. Add to the equation some of the country’s best vocalists (luminaries such as Kylie Auldist, Tex Perkins, and Daniel Merriweather among them) and you’ve got the recipe for a cracking Australian album.
