AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first minute or so – working out sounds that are incredibly fresh and powerful! "AWOL" has more horns in the lead, and a great funky bassline at the core – a bad-stepping little number that's equal parts Afro and Funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Charles BradleyStrictly Reserved For You/Let Love Stand A Chance ... 7-inch
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99
Pure wonderfulness from Charles Bradley – two killer cuts that really sum up his contemporary genius! "Strictly Reserved" has this slow funk groove that's nice and sinister – a stepping guitar riff that really sets up the groove right from the start – topped with these incredibly soulful vocals from Charles, and peppered with just the right dose of horns! "Let Love Stand A Chance" is a killer too – mellower, and a bit more deep soul – with a burning feel that almost blows away the best James Brown ballads of the King Records years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cozy ColeTopsy (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Love, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of THE all time great instrumental singles! Drummer Cozy takes the tune "Topsy" and turns it on its ear – by taking the track's vamping style, and using it to insert a heck of a lot of great drum rolls, fills, and solo bits! There's some great organ that percolates through the second part, and the whole thing's incredibly catchy and rhythmic! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Coral Silver Star pressing.)

New Flyte TimeIt's The Things That You Do/I've Got You On My Mind (purple colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $5.99
Great electro funk from Flyte Time – with cool keyboards over a bumping bassline – and a tight ensemble approach that belies these guys' role in the Twin Cities scene! The tune's got raw guitar riffing along with the vocals – and the cut's backed by the mellow "I've Got You On My Mind" – a tune that glides along beautifully with sweet guitar licks and this completely sublime moogy solo at the start! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Greg Ginn & The Taylor Texas CorrugatorsFreddie/Tea ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2010. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $0.99
No TV Party here, as Greg Ginn's moved into some very different territory than his punkish roots! "Freddie" is a beautiful instrumental that wraps together musing guitar and organ lines – all in a weird cross between rock, jazz, and funk – sounding almost like some obscure instrumental single from the early post-punk underground – but the softer side, too – a bit like Dif Juz! "Tea" bubbles along a bit more strongly – almost a majestic statement by the organ at the start, with freer musings on guitar – all nicely tripped-out! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lady Alma/RahelI Can't Help It/Hope – Presented by Marc de Clive-Lowe ... 7-inch
Alala, 2010. New Copy ... $2.99
Sweetly grooving sounds and lovely vocals from Lady Alma – who sang on 4Hero's "Hold It Down", with Sylk130 and Silhouette Brown – working wonderfully over the jazzy club sounds on "I Can't Help It"! The track starts with just soaring vocals before the percolating beats and jazzy keys kick in, with the Lady's vocals nicely out front in the mix. The flip is has a heavier beat and more excellent lead vocals, by Rahel – with the beats mirrored by piano in a really effective way. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Los Saicos (aka Saicos)Demolician – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1966 (6 x 7 inch box set plus download) ... 7-inch
Munster (Spain), Mid 60s. Near Mint- 6 x 7" Box Set ... $49.99
An incredible batch of prime garage rock era nuggets from the Peruvian scene – fuzzy gems by the Saicos! The Saicos bring a sense of menace to these tunes – with a guitar tone touched with an eerie vibe, and lead vocals that are really piercing and gravelly in that instills this primordial edge that needs to be heard to be believed – but that balance it off with some moddish, British invasion grooves, too. The overall sound manages to blend both the heavy menace of cult acts like the Monks and the Seeds with the tunefulness of the Animals – and clear precursor the garage punk for decades to come! Titles include "Come On (Ven Aqui)", "Ana", "Demolicion", "Lonely Star (Estrella Solitaria)", "Cememterio", "Te Amo", "Fugitivo De Alcatraz", "Salvaje", "El Entierro De Los Gatos", "Besando A Otra" and "Intensamente". Comes with a great booklet and download card, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jackie RossMan Is Born (Doctor Slaps)/Need Your Love So Bad ... 7-inch
USA, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A wonderful rare cut from Chisoul singer Jackie Ross! "Man Is Born" is amazing – kind of a righteous message cut about a kid who started off bad from the start, set to incredible arrangements that are kind of in a Motown-baroque mode that work perfectly with the track's strange message. "Need Your Love" shows off Jackie's ballad side – and both cuts were written and arranged by producer Jimmy Van Leer! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Signs Of The TimeHurts So Bad/I Think Of You ... 7-inch
Pro 7/Numero, New Copy ... $5.99
A funky funky version of "Hurts So Bad" – one that still carries all the familiar lyric of the tune, but which begins with this totally great intro that sets up a mad groove peppered with hard piano lines and guitar! The mix of the harmony vocals and the sharp groove is mighty darn nice – especially when the production starts to make things sound trippy, too! "I Think Of You" has a trippy feel too – lots of echo on the group's vocals, and guitar tuned more like a sitar – complete with the twang! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Piero UmilianiI Soliti Ignoti EP ... 7-inch
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1958. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Very early work from this soundtrack genius – a rare Italian EP that features his classic "Blues For Gassman" – dedicated to Vittorio Gassman, who starred in the film – and featuring great interplay from the tune's two trombonists! Umiliani delivers some great offbeat piano – and part two of the tune features some very moody work on vibes. The EP also features the late night jazz number "Tema D'Amore", which has a slight Latin undercurrent – and the flowing full ensemble "Finale". 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Chico & BuddyThing Called The Jones/Can You Dig It ... 7-inch
Rojac, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We've definitely got the jones for this cool little cut – a righteous funky number about the evil power of drugs – but set to one of the trippiest grooves we've ever heard! The track feels like a raw indie take on territory explored by The Temptations and Norman Whitfield – but with a more powerful vibe overall! "Can You Dig It" also has a cool badass feel too – right from the siren at the start to the echoey spoken bit that follows – and the cool jazz funk grooves that send the whole thing home! Funky wit with some great instrumentation! 7-inch, Vinyl record
