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

Agogo (Germany), 2014. New Copy
A really lovely set from this enigmatic duo – a mix of the sweet French vocals of Myra Maud and the keyboards of Lutz Krajenski – then agumented by lots of warm jazzy touches! The record's got a voice that's all its own – French language lyrics, bossa-tinged backings, and soulful ... CD

Tru Thoughts, 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
A shapely set of grooves from the Tru Thoughts label – a double-length set at half the price of a regular CD – and one that also features a fair bit of rare mixes and hard to find tracks! The package is a great way to dip into the richness of the label – one of the few leftfield ... CD

Sun
Sony, 2013. New Copy
The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old ... CD

Wall
Playwright (Japan), 2014. New Copy
We really love these guys – and are continually amazed at what they can do with just bass, drums, and piano – all very conventional instruments, but used by Fox Capture Plan in this soaringly soulful style! The music's not entirely jazz – because all three instruments are very ... CD

III
Innovative Leisure, 2014. New Copy
The best work so far from this ultra-hip trio – an amazing combination of keyboards, bass, and drums – served up in styles that are rooted in funk and jazz, but go to so many other places as well! The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their ... CD

Where Am I Going
Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the greatest of all Dusty Springfield albums – a gem of a record that mixes British pop, soul, and some very groovy orchestrations! The whole session has that kind of soaring, soulful bounce that Dusty had on her best records – but which was possibly never done nearly as well as ... CD

L'Amour
Light In The Attic, 1983. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A strangely beautiful rarity from the early 80s, by a singer-songwriter billed only as Lewis – a mystery man who looks like a shirtless soap opera actor – but delivers one of the coolest pieces of period LA esoterica we've heard in a long, long time! The sound is tough to describe, but ... CD
