Imagine the Woodstock Santana band dosed with mescaline instead of acid and you’ve got a pretty solid foundation for the relentless funk of Cilantro Boombox. On their self-titled debut, the Austin octet shreds into the ether on long-form jam material, but can turn on a dime for strands of psychedelic disco-funk. Led by bassist Félix Pacheco and saxophonist Joe Woullard, the band’s mold of Latin rock, Afro-Cuban rhythm and street brass has made Cilantro Boombox a nimble asset on the bill, opening for Cafe Tacuba and Willie Nelson in recent years. With Los De Esta Noche and DJ Steven Lee Moya.
