LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 39

African influenced funk from Karl Hector & The Malcouns – the long-standing deep funk collective centered around guitarist and producer Jay Whitefield and other players from modern funk trailblazers Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers – who bring their most globally steeped grit and groove when they're working as Karl Hector & The Malcouns! The Tamanrasset EP goes even deeper in the African influenced sounds than the Sahara Swing album did – but there's enough freewheeling psychedelic funk in the mix to make this much more than a mere Afro or Ethio Funk revival effort. Swirling organs, heavy and dexterous bass lines, great horns and all around masterful musicianship really sets this group apart, as does their longstanding underground funk pedigree. Includes "El Gusto", "Tamanrasset", "M'hammath (Live)", "Girma's Lament" and "Wajeerta Hoose (The Lower Wajeer)". We wish it ran longer, but wanting more isn't much of a flaw, is it? (Vinyl only release with hand silk screened cover by Hit + Run – limited to 1000 copies and Now Again promises it will not be repressed!!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Daptone, 2007. New Copy
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant mix of Afro and deep funk styles – the kind of grooves you'd get if Fela Kuti hung out with The Meters in the late 60s!

Essentially early Stones! 12 X 5 is The Rolling Stones at a very early, hard grooving peak, way back in '64. It's ground breaking stuff, in they they truly pave the way for so much of the soul, blues and R&B loving Anglos to come out of the Brit and US scenes in the months and years to come. ...
