4.90 1

An unabashedly 80s-styled set – one that makes heavy use of drum programs and keyboards, but in ways that come up with a surprisingly warm sound in the end! Kindness remind us of some of our favorite indie projects from decades back – especially some of the more intimate records from the post punk years – a bit homemade in the sound structure, but put together with a sense of studio privacy that really lets some warmer, more personal feelings come through in the mix – yet in ways that are light years from any sort of singer/songwriter mode too. Vocals and most instrumentation come from Adam Bainbridge – although a few tracks feature additional guitar or drums from others – and titles include a great cover of The Replacements' "Swingin Party", plus "Anyone Can Fall In Love", "Gee Wiz", "House", "That's Alright", and "Doigsong".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Poet's Embrace
Haven/Warner (UK), 2012. New Copy
A really great change for saxophonist Nathan Haines – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how much we already liked him before! The set's a straight jazz outing – of the kind that really lets Haines' strengths on reeds shine forth beautifully – soaring out soulfully in ways ... CD
Epiphany Electrified
Unconditional Sound (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy
Funky flute, in a sweet dancefloor mode – as the work of Han Litz is remixed here by a variety of European producers! Litz has a groove that's already great on its own – a style that hearkens back to 60s and 70s jazz flute players, especially the funkier currents of the latter – ... CD
Latin Kick
Schema (Italy), 2005. New Copy
The Latin Kick – with a jazzy groove! Gerardo Frisina's long been one of our favorite talents on the international groove underground, and like his labelmate and sometime musical partner Nicola Conte, he's got a way of crafting tracks that are awash in classic jazz touches. Frisina himself ... CD
Trinity
Playwright (Japan), 2013. New Copy
A killer debut from an ultra-cool trio – a group that features members of Jabberloop and Immigrant's Bossa Band – and who work here in a core Japanese club jazz style that's somewhere between the work of Quasimode and Indigo Jam Unit – but a lot more stripped-down than both! Most ... CD
Bridge
Playwright (Japan), 2013. New Copy
Fast drums, fast piano, and a groove that's mighty darn nice – that wonderful sound we're really digging from Fox Capture Plan – a Japanese trio who mix clubjazz modes with almost a minimalist sense of progression! The tunes have loads of leaping piano lines from Ryo Kishimoto – ... CD
Space
Favorite (France), 2013. New Copy
One of the coolest projects so far from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – a set that's put together as a tribute to all the spacey electronic 70s grooves from artists like Patrick Adams, Alain Goraguer, or Jean Pierre Massiera! Patchworks definitely gets the sound right for the set ... CD
Electric Conversation
Futuristica (UK), 2013. New Copy
A nice one from Parisian electro soul combo Electric Conversation – with a hazy mood, compelling beats and warm, soul-steeped vocals! EC has a more atmospheric, moody vibe over all than a lot of what's happening contemporaneously that call fall into the broken beat category – and ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2013. New Copy
Mighty keyboards from Francesco Gazzara – easily one of our favorite Irma Records artists from years back – still sounding pretty darn great here in a nicely mature setting! The album's got a bit of the bossa promised in the title, but also has a wider-ranging groove too – echoes ... CD
Varese/La La Land, 1983. New Copy
A really cool, moody soundtrack from Tangerine Dream – one that's got some of the best atmospherics of their 70s work, compressed into shorter tunes for the movie! The film features these creepy bald aliens, and the music really seems to evoke their presence – this kind of clean, lean, ... CD
ESP, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the coolest, weirdest records ever issued on the legendary ESP label in the 60s – and an album that really sums up the East Village crossroads from which the imprint sprang! The music here is a mad melange of art rock, hippie folk, sound samples, and avant jazz – all presented ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2014. New Copy
These guys are really on fire this time around – and turn in one of the most searing performances we've ever heard from a contemporary funky combo! Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro hail from Japan, and have really earned our attention with their previous funky records – but this time around ... CD
CBS/Grapefruit (UK), 1967. New Copy
A lost British psychedelic pop effort from Picadilly Line – fixtures on the UK rock club scene of the era – and a great little record that belongs in the upper echelon of work from the time! The Huge World Of Emily Small features swirling tunes and wonderfully mannered harmony and lead ... CD
