The Grease Traps - Street Sweeper 7-Inch

Colemine

Hard-driving, sweaty and dexterously played organ funk from The Grease Traps! This Oakland-based group is laying down some super heavy funk west-coast style! “Street Sweeper” brings the heat from the get-go – with sweeping drums, killer bassline and most especially the organ. It’s got a nice Jimmy Smith meets the JBs kinda of feel! The flip “Burning Bush” is another heater, this one some nice sax and conga work. Cool afro-funk rhythms and hits along with some Fela-ish sounding organ round out this B-side nicely.
