VariousBrownswood Bubblers Vol 7 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2011. New Copy .... $10.99 17.98
Lucky Seven in the Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Bubblers series – hand-picked modern soul, tripped out electronic grooves, glitchy clubby psych and otherwise top shelve, avant yet accessible groovers – with tracks by The Stepkids, Jon Phonics, Ivy Chanel, KING, Ratcliffe, Tanya Auclair, Ntjam Rosie and more! One thing we've dug about the series-to-date, including this one, is that as diverse as the material is, and as willfully uncategorizable it is, there's a shared devotion to real songs rather than mere atmospherics – and it's strong stuff all the through. Includes "The One" by Jon Phonics, "Thrum", "La La" by Stepkids, "Shoot The Ducks To Win" by Stealing Sheep, "Sensitive" by Cleveland & Ahmed, "Water No Enemy" by Tall Black Man, "Hey" by King, "Belleville" by The Park, "Mindset" by Ratcliffe and more.

VariousBrownswood Bubblers Vol 8 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold .... $15.99 17.98
Gilles Peterson does it again – and proves that he's still got one of the best ears around for choosing new music! Even after seven previous volumes, the Bubblers series is still plenty darn incredible – a great place for getting a taste of the best of the contemporary underground – those amazing artists that Gilles always features on his BBC show – always hand-picked, and chosen without any consideration for commercial directions – as you'll hear on the really revolutionary music in the package. There's a nicely laidback vibe this time around – a reminder of Peterson's tastes for more acoustic and jazz-based modes – and some of the tunes almost echo some of the rootsier music that Brownswood has recorded in recent years, too. Titles include "Volver" by Ana Tijoux, "She Was Out In The Water" by One Little Plane, "Crush" by Hello Skinny, "Linha De Frente" by Criolo, "Again" by Def Sound, "Manchild" by Haydn, and "Bout You" by Rainy Milo.

William AdamsonUnder An East Coast Moon ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. Used .... $8.99
Almost an underground groove supergroup – given that the set features work from Earl Zinger (Rob Gallagher of Galliano) at the helm, production from 2 Banks Of 4, vocals from Valerie Etienne, and funky rhythms from Shawn Lee! The combination of talents come together here in a very new way – with a style that's much grittier and earlier than before, although still pretty darn groovy overall – almost putting a raspy old school touch on a scene that's definitely matured on its own, and may well be old enough to lay claim to the rootsy sound of this set! Rob's songwriting has definitely matured, and at some of the best moments, there's almost a British Tom Waits-y kind of quality to the set. Titles include "Below Sea Level", "Burial Blues", "Whip Of The Wind", "Laxfield Blasphemy", "Velvets Eleven", "Margaret Catchpole", and "Foggy Dew". CD

Zara McFarlaneIf You Knew Her ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $10.99 11.98
An even better album than Zara McFarlane's debut – and a record that lets us dig even deeper into the wonderful world of her vocals! The instrumentation here is mostly stripped down – usually just a bit of percussion, bass, or piano – used as sparingly here as on some of Jose James' early work for the Brownswood label – material that would be a great comparison for Zara's approach here, as the style is a really personal blend of jazz roots, contemporary soul phrasing, and individual musical vision! Most lyrics are McFarlane's own – spun out warmly and without any sense of cliche or overdone phrasing – and even when she turns to songs by others, she really finds a way to make them all her own. Titles include "Open Heart", "Her Eyes", "Move", "You'll Get Me In Trouble", "Plain Gold Ring", "Woman In The Olive Groves", "Love", and "Angie La La". CD

Owiny Sigoma BandPower Punch ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $15.99 17.98
An album that definitely packs a powerful punch – thanks to a compelling blend of sounds from both London and Kenya, brought together in a whole new formation of African groove! The album's a wicked reworking of an older aesthetic – in a spirit that's similar to the really inventive changes that Tony Allen brought to his music on the Paris scene in the late 90s – but with a fresh, crisp sort of energy that really lives up to the group's placement on the Brownswood label! Electric and acoustic elements are wrapped together beautifully – so that both act very organically in the music – and the vocals work in a similar way – never totally out front, but instead a strong part of this wonderful hybrid. Titles include "Sunken Wrecks", "Owiny Techno", "Norbat Okelo", "Nagalo Ni Piny Odag", "Yukimwi", "All Together", and "Jonny Ra Ha". CD

TroumacaGrace ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $15.99 17.98
A nice mix of bubbling electronic grooves and warm, earthy atmosphere from Troumaca – and another solid set of genre-skirting soundscapes on the Brownswood label! It's a mix of compelling beats, keyboards, synth and more organic instrumentation. They've got quite a sun-toasted vibe, with strains of dancehall and tropical club grooves – but what really sets the group apart is their devotion to the songs. There's a nice vocals-centric approach at play here – with some really catchy choruses. Good stuff! Includes "Trees", "Sanctify", "Gold, Women & Wine", "Kingdom", "The Sun", "Tiger Eye", "Ivory", "Lady Colour", "The Grace" and more. CD

New Diggs DukeOffering For Anxious ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An amazing set from Diggs Duke – music that's beyond comparison to anything else we've ever heard, yet which also manages to wrap up so many different sounds and styles at once! Diggs is definitely a soul singer, with a sense of jazz in his approach – but he also grabs so many elements and wraps them up into his music, the result is completely unique – and completely mindblowing as well! Duke's vocals are warmly raspy, and the lyrics are sometimes processed at a level that has them filtered down alongside the beats – but every single element in the music also seems to resonate at an individual level as well – including a diverse array instrumentation that includes alto sax, piano, djembe, trumpet, flute congas, Wurlitzer piano, and more – all played by Diggs himself. Truly one of the most memorable albums we've heard on Brownswood so far – and a set that really lives up to the promise of the label – with titles that include "Sweat Like Sieves", "Born From You", "Lion's Feast", "Nine Winning Wives", "Mass Exodus", "Harsh Words With The Oracle", and "Crazy Like A Fox".

74 Miles AwayGear Change ... LP
Laid Back Records (France), 2013. New Copy .... $22.99
A fully instrumental set from this cool keyboard combo – a group who've recorded previously for Melting Pot and Brownswood, but who somehow sound even greater here than ever before! The group features two guys on keys – including Fender Rhodes, moog, and Wurlitzer – mixed with guitars and samples, and some sweet funky flute too – all at a level that trips easily between 70s and 80s spacey funk modes – a vibe that handles all aspects of influence from Herbie Hancock, plus lots more exciting bits from the underground too! There's plenty of jazz in the mix, but the tunes also have a forward funky flavor too – and titles include "Looking Good", "Little Fatima", "Brusseleiro", "Axel Foley", "Sly", and "Seven Four".
