Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 1

Thick, vibrant and moody soundscapes from Lorn – heavy waves of synth, glitchy beats and all around impressive atmosphere – up there with some of the most distinctive and idiosyncratic (mostly) instrumental music we've heard on Ninja Tune in a while! Fairly gritty in a bit dark, without ever becoming oppressively so – with unpredictable elements floating in and out. Includes "Mercy", "Weigh Me Down", "This", "Diamond", "Everything Is Violence", "The Well", "The Gun", "Dead Dogs", "I Better", "Ghosst" and "Ghosst(s)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

On My Way
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy
The first full album we've ever heard from Kon – and a really soulful set that follows strongly off his famous mixtapes and compilations with Amir! As on those gems, there's a very classic sound going on here – a strong love of the best moments of 70s soul, funk, and club – ... CD

Stix (France), 2014. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from this ultra-cool project – music that's neither straight disco, nor really reggae – and instead a great dubby reworking of dancefloor modes from a few generations past! The range of material here comes a number of different settings – but is all worked ... CD

My Favorite Songs
Blue Note (Japan), 2014. New Copy
A great new groove from Quasimode – and a set that has the combo really coming across with a sound that's more sensitive than before! The quartet still have their great ear for a strong bottom on their jazz tunes, but most numbers here move in a midtempo speed, instead of their previous ... CD

Nabuma Rubberband
Universal Republic, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)
Dreamy, soul-steeped avant pop sounds from Sweden's Little Dragon! The group has been delivering with atmospheric production, high quality songs, and timeless, genuine soul for long enough that we could consider them veterans by this point – and we're glad they continue to do their thing ... CD

Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2CD
A long-overdue collection of all the mixes, side-projects, and rare "Nicola Conte version" tracks that have cropped up in the past decade or so – work that's every bit as great as the material Conte includes on his own albums and singles! Nicola Conte's not a remixer – he's a ... CD

Octave (Japan), Late 90s. New Copy Gatefold
A beautiful collection of work from Ian O'Brien – rare tracks from a time when he was really making some great steps forward in the underground scene – one of the few keyboardists able to really reintroduce a sense of cosmic jazz to the music! Most tracks here are appearing on CD for ... CD

Soundway (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
A hip group from Sierra Leone – but one who recorded these tracks in the US during the late 70s – which makes for a very unusual hybrid of sounds! The group's original approach was to update regional sounds from their nation, and avoid some of the more commercial cover versions of ... CD

Long Way To The Beginning
Knitting Factory, 2014. New Copy
Some of the fiercest, hardest work we've ever heard from Seun Kuti – a record that bristles with anger and energy right from the start – and which really has him lighting a whole new sort of fire under the Eygpt 80 band! Seun's got this intense look on the artwork of the record – ... CD

Sunroom
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy
Avery Sunshine stunned us with her debut, but she really blows us away with this amazing second set – a record that has the singer not only deepening her sound, but also hitting this really classic vibe that takes us back to legendary music on Stax or Hi Records! The production and setting ... CD

Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
Rare tracks and a fair bit of unreleased dub plates too – a deep dig into the genius of Yabby You during the 70s! There's a dark, brooding intensity to these tracks right from the start – from the deep, bassy bottoms of the dubs – to the prophetic lyrics of the tunes, which often ... CD

Resolution 88
Synthethesia (UK), 2014. New Copy
A really sweet set from the UK – recorded by a contemporary combo, but with a feel that's right up there with our favorite funky fusion from the 70s! The keyboards really dominate here, but they're nicely balanced against some excellent work on tenor sax – which rounds out the sound ... CD
