Fanfare

2LP
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 32

Plenty of fanfare here – given the great horns that top the groove of Kingdom Afrocks! The ensemble have a Afro Funk vibe that's mighty nice – one that's slightly askew, but in the best way possible – with some cool flat-toned electric piano running ragged over the rhythms, while the horns soar in over the top, and really give the whole record a bold dose of energy in the process! Rhythms really know when to break from the familiar at all the right moments – never sticking too straightly in a 70s Afro Funk mode, and instead going for some bold changes that really keep things interesting – and grooving as well! Titles include "Voodoo Grease", "Will To Live", "Typhoon", "Fanfare", "Escucha", and "Baila Y Goza".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

NEPA – Never Expect Power Always
Celluloid/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy (reissue)
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jealousy
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s! Fela and his group (Afrika 70) are still working with Tony here, and Fela lays down some tenor and piano solos – but make no mistake, it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A heady brew of unusual music from the Iraqi scene – material that's billed here as folk and pop, but which has a quality that's a lot different than those genres might sound in the US! The folksy cuts often have angular reed work in the mix, which really gives them a sharp edge – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy Gatefold
A great dip into the sounds of Algeria in the 70s – surprisingly great music, and surprisingly sophisticated at times too – with a vibe that often matches the best Turkish or Iranian records from the time! Most numbers here are from smaller 45s and EP release – and are hardly the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Glitterbeat (Germany), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
Contemporary cumbia sounds from this this sweetly trippy combo – a group who definitely do a good job of bringing out some of the more psychedelic aspects of the music! The album's a bit like some of the chicha remakes that have been coming out from the New York scene – in that it ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yekte
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album

Na Teef Know De Road Of Teef
Daptone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
An Afro Funk treasure from the 70s – a rare album recorded by Pax Nicholas, a singer and percussionist who was part of Fela's legendary Africa 70 band! The album's got a sound that definitely echoes that heritage, but with a groove that's pretty weird too – more stripped down than most ... LP, Vinyl record album

All Saints, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3LPs
Heavenly work from the enigmatic Laraaji – a musician who's best known for his ambient collaboration with Brian Eno, but who's also recorded a lot of sounds on his own! The package is the first we've ever seen to bring Laraaji's talents to light this strongly – as it not only features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bodyquake (with download)
Unique (Germany), 2014. New Copy
An even more playful set than before from Laura Vane & The Vipertones – a record that still has some of the older funk and soul elements of previous releases, but which also comes across with a more contemporary vibe as well – a kind of bouncy, jaunty sort of soul that seems to work ...

Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
Some of the deepest, darkest sounds we've ever heard from The Heliocentrics – and that's saying a lot, given the freak and fuzz of these guys' other work! The music has an especially echoey feel – one that comes through in the use of analogue electronics that makes some passages feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Polaroid
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy
Andre Solomko is an artist who was born a few decades late – the kind of talent who would have been right at home in the CTI scene of the 70s – where he no doubt would have risen to great fame for his music! Yet we're also more than happy to have him working strong here in the 21st ... LP, Vinyl record album
