Amel LarrieuxBravebird ... CD
Bliss Life, 2004. Used ... $4.99
The first indie release by Amel Larrieux – and a great one! Amel's sounding stronger than ever here – working in stripped-down territory that recalls her earlier work, yet which also put her in the forefront of underground soul artists keeping the genre fresh and strong. After years singing with Groove Theory, Sweetback, and on other projects, Larrieux's vocals are incredible – deeply-crafted, but never overdone and cloying – sliding around with a style that's sweet and righteous at the same time, and set here amidst arrangements that have some great twists and turns. Nicely defying cliché, Amel's got a sound here that's fresher than ever! Titles include "For Real", "Congo", "Sacred", "Giving Something Up", "Beyond", "All I Got", "Say You Want It All", and "Dear To Me". CD

Tyrone LeeInvitation ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
An inviting set of UK soul from Tyrone Lee! It's a nice mix of uptempo and mid tempo groovers with a modern sound, though it skirts contemporary trends, giving it a vibe that'll stand the test of time. Tyrone has a naturally soulful and confident presence – with the poise of a veteran – even if this is the first we've heard from him. Nice stuff from Expansion UK! Titles include "Time Of Your Life", "What Took You So Long", "Hot2Nite", "Get 2 Know U", "Invitation", "Get My Life Back", "Listening To Your Heart", "Overload", "Turn Up The Heat", "Woman In My World" and more.

Georg LevinEverything Must Change ... LP
BBE (UK), 2010. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A soulful set from Georg Levin – who delivered a knockout solo album on Sonar Kollectiv a few years back – delivering on that promise wonderfully on this set for BBE! Levin straddles the line between real, yet clubby soul and soul rooted and laidback dancefloor – he pretty much has his own unique style here, with strains of classic soul and modern European club sound flourishes. Warm and sophisticated, it's real win for both Levin and BBE! Includes "I Need To Understand", "Everything Must Change", "Runaway", The Better Life", "Falling Masonry", "Time To Reenact", "Colour Of The Day", "The Scent Of Hay", "You're The One" and "Late Discovery".

New Personal LifeMorning Light ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New Heavies or Incognito at their best – with a similar blend of funk and jazz alongside some positive, upbeat lyrics – and an overall groove that's definitely inspired by the best of the 70s soul generation! Male and female vocals mix together to give the record a nice full sound – and titles include "Rainy Day In London", "There's A Time For Everything", "Classic Lady", "Distance Can Be Sweet", "Give Into The Night", and "Morning Light".

New VariousRebirth Of Cool 7 ... CD
Island (UK), 1998. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last of the legendary Rebirth Of The Cool series – and a double-length set that goes even farther than previous volumes! By the time of this one, the scene that first inspired the series was really stretching into new dimensions – so as well as classic-inspired new jazz and soul tracks, there's also a lot of numbers that hit a much more abstract vibe. As before, the tracks represent some of the best of the underground, pulled together in one package – with titles that include "Plans & Designs" by Faze Action, "Contrazoom" by Spacer, "Monkey Jazz" by Ian O'Brien, "My Beat" by Blaze, "Tears For The Yard" by The Amalgamation Of Soundz, "Life (Da Lata mix)" by Luciano, "Ballet Dance" by Roni Size, "African Elation" by Dean Fraser, "Impressions" by Fused Up, and "My History Feel The Spirit" by New Sector Movements. 20 tracks on 2CDs!

New AbiahLife As A Ballad ... CD
Nia, 2012. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful second record from Abiah – warmly wonderful material that's as sensitive as a singer/songwriter set, yet also has a deep sense of soul as well! Vocals and piano are wonderfully intertwined – in a mode that has the depth of jazz, yet the focus of soul music as well – often handled at a gentle pace, but with a flow that really holds us rapt throughout – with an acoustic vibe that's somewhere in a space between Bill Withers and Joan Armatrading. Abiah is an artist who previously recorded for Universal under his first name, Jeremiah – but he sounds even more wonderful here, and the shift to using his last name is definitely a good choice for this next chapter in his music. Titles include "This Time", "Goodbye", "Foolish Heart", "September", "Turn The Light On", and "Life As A Ballad". CD

Roy Davis JrChicago Forever ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
An instant classic from Roy Davis Jr – and a record that really takes us back to the deepest days of the Chicago house scene! Roy's tunes are simple, effective, and straightforward – yet also have a cosmic burning soul that moves them past the coldness that could sometimes hold back work from Chicago. The beats are tight, but never overbearing; the keyboards are spacey, but never too noodly; and Roy's got some great vocal help on a few cuts from singers that include Terry Dexter, Khalid, and Ayro! As a side note, the album was actually recorded a year or two before release, but delayed due to personal issues in Roy's life – which further enforces the "lost classic" feel of the set, and makes us even happier to finally have it out. Titles include "My Soul Is Electric", "If You Wanna", "Strings & Things", "Wonderland", "Nu Roots", "Heavenly Father", and "U Give U Take". CD

KemIntimacy ... CD
Motown, 2010. Used ... $8.99
The third album from KEM and it's a wonderful one – delivering on the promise of the title with a deeply soulful, truthful and personal approach – a record that brings grace, subtly and a timeless warmth in a way that surprises us in a wonderful way! We love a modern soul that evokes the classic, slow cooking soul of the 70s and 80s without feeling like a self-conscious throwback, and that's what KEM has done here. Lightly grooving keys, delicately layered real instrumentation and that brings an almost jazzy soul elegance – and most importantly, solid songs and truly soulful vocals. A real winner! Includes "Golden Days" with Jill Scott, plus "When I'm Loving You", "Can You Feel It", "Share My Life", "Human Touch", "If It's Love", "You're On My Mind" and more. CD

RuralsReinterpretations ... CD
Peng (UK), 2003. Used ... $8.99
We're not normally the biggest fans of remix albums, but this set is pretty darn great – and stands equally nicely next to the regular full length sets by The Rurals! Given that the Rurals groove is one that's already pretty tuned towards the dancefloor, their work makes them a perfect choice for a session like this – and added to that is the fact that the group have a very good ear for other peoples' music, so they've picked a strong array of talents to help them with this set. Titles include "Sweet (Adny rmx)", "That Feelin (Savannah rmx)", "Ways To Love (Wagon Cookin rmx)", "No Power (Dino & Terry rmx)", "Make Amends (Harley & Muscle rmx)", "Lush (95 North rmx – Kwame's piano dub)", "Habits (lifetime dub – DJ Brazil rmx)", and "Sweeter Sounds (Cue Kids dub)".

Angie StoneUnexpected ... CD
Stax, 2009. Used ... $4.99
Angie Stone's second album for Stax – and some of her most insistently catchy songs ever – with a sound that bridges a deeply melodic, modern-to-future soul vibe to the grounded, self determined and emotional neo classic groove that she's built her solo repution on! If you've been following Angie's career from her pioneering female rap crew Sequence to the late aughties, you know that she has a voice that has brought depth and soul to a number of styles, not just the natural soul sound she's arguably most famous for, so really the one thing we can expect from her, thankfully, is excellent soul music of all stripes. Unexpected has productions that are for the most part ready for the dancefloor, but the songs are much deeper than just that – with Angie's voice exuding truth and soul throughout, with songs that find her confronting and slaying negativity while celebrating life and love. Titles include "Unexpected", "I Ain't Hearin You", "Free", "Maybe", "Hey, Mr DJ", "Kiss All Over Your Body", "Why Is It", "Think Sometimes" and "I Found A Keeper". CD

New Debra DebsLife Cycles ... CD
Debra Debs/Arts Quest (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant batch of new millenium soul from Debra Debs! Debra is a London-based, Cameroon-born singer, and Life Cycles is the first full length effort we've heard from her, but it leaves us with little doubt that she'll be around for years to come. This is some of the nicest indie soul we've heard in a while! Her voice is warm and inviting, and she's get a deft hand for memorable songwriting, too – bearing the influence of some of the finer voices of the neo soul generation, as well as the jazzy soul voices of the classic era. The production is flavored by timeless keys and beats, and lots of lightly jazzy instrumental touches. Excellent stuff! Includes "Caught Up", "Clear My Name", "Love Galore", "Fizzy Lemonade" (plus a Felo Le Tee remix) "Daddy", "Blew Your Mind", "Sometimes", "Chasing Dreams", "Blending Colours", "Awake With You", "Africa 'Higher Higher'" feat P. Jericho and "Speeches". CD
