Waiting Room

A 11 track funk album (39m 55s) — released September 24th 2021 on College Of Knowledge Records

  • 7 piece instrumental soul group from Melbourne, Australia featuring members from Karate Boogaloo, Surprise Chef and Saskwatch.

  • Produced by Henry Jenkins (Karate Boogaloo, Mo'Ju), the recording mind behind Surprise Chef and Karate Boogaloo, Waiting Room moves deftly through moments of fuzzed-out psychedelia, dusty deep soul backbeat and incendiary minor key funk.

What is going on with the College Of Knowledge lot? They're so good! It's like the best crew of musicians in the world. - Tom Ravenscroft BBC6 Music

These Melbourne boys have been in the analogue kitchen and dinner is ready. Damn it tastes good, perfectly seasoned with the drums and bass cooked just as they should be. Complex arrangements: psychedelic, uncompromising and rugged. Left me hungry for more - Miles Cleret Soundway Records

Wonderful! What are they feeding the jazz kids down there?! Another triumph. - Bradley Zero Rhythm Section

I was waiting for this. - Alex Barck Jazzanova

4/5 stars. LYHD are no copyists... Everything here is confidently stamped as their own brand and showcases a wide spectrum, taking in Afro-funk, psych-funk grooves, minor-key contemplations and danceable boogaloo... A multi-layered tour-de-force. - Shindig Magazine
