CD


4.90 40

Amazing sounds from Moonchild – a group as lovely as their name! The style here is slinky and stellar – spacey funk that's heavy on keyboards, yet really laidback too – stepping along in a cool cosmic vibe that's perfect for the lead vocals of Amber Navran – a hell of a great singer who really makes her voice work well with the keys! The album's really a cut above the rest – very fresh, with a crisp edge that's wonderful – and proof that there's still some great folks out there in the underground making righteous music like this! Titles include "Back To Me", "Be Free", "Out Of My Mind", "Ocean Deep", "Gone", "What Shall We Do", and "Turn It Up".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy
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 ... CD

Blue Note, 2014. New Copy
Jose James sounds even deeper than ever here – really moving forward with that amazing voice, and really finding a special space between all the jazz, soul, and funk projects of previous years! The album has James almost emerging as a singer who can span genres and reach out to new scenes ... CD

All About The Funk
Shanachie, 2004. New Copy
The Brand New Heavies back on top in the early 00s – coming across with a batch of funky soul tracks that should cross over large! The sound here is much tighter and hook-heavy than on their recent Japanese release – more in the vein of the chart-crossing funk the group were cooking up ... CD

Shanachie, 2014. New Copy
The title's really evocative here, and so is the music – maybe the strongest solo moment we've heard from Floacist so far! The tunes have a sensual quality that grabs us right away – not cloying, commercial romantic modes – but a laidback, personal, positive vibe that's produced ... CD

Fall For You
J & T, 2014. New Copy
Not even work on a reality show can dampen the fire of Leela James – still one of the boldest R&B singers of our generation! The album's got the sharp sound and no-nonsense approach that's made James a powerhouse right from the start – served up with an open, honest style on all ... CD

Motown/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Just when you think you know everything there is to know about Motown, here comes a set to open your ears and blow your mind all over again! The set unearths a huge amount of rare work by The Contours – the rollicking group who gave Motown a sweet album and handful of singles in the 60s, but ... CD

Hot Buttered Soul/Stax (UK), 1975. New Copy
Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders! Everybody Wanna Live On may very well be the best album ever by this sweet southern vocal group – produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, who'd always had a big hand in the group's sound. The record's got a style that reminds us of mid 70s ... CD

About Time, 1983. New Copy
Overlooked genius from Henry Threadgill – one of his under-exposed 80s sessions for the About Time label, and work that's every bit as great as his better-known sides for Delmark or Black Saint! The group here has a nice sense of freedom and interplay – almost a quality that hearkens ... CD

When Was That?
About Time, 1982. New Copy
One of the most beautiful, lyrical albums we've ever heard from Henry Threadgill – a set that still has all the sharp edges you might know from his other work, but which also comes across with a slightly more sensitive sound as well! The compositions are beautiful – really well-written ... CD
