We've loved Swing Out Sister for more than a few years – and over that time, the duo's only gotten better! It's records like this that keep us coming back again and again – a brilliant blend of soul currents and hook-heavy arrangements that feel like a blend of late 60s UK and the best of the contemporary global Neo Soul underground! Corinne Drewery's vocals grab us right away with their depth and upfront sense of personality – and the sweet keyboards of Andy Connell hold the whole thing together with the kind of jazzy undercurrents the group has had since their start. The set includes some sweet remakes of older tunes – and titles include "You On My Mind", "Incomplete Without You", "Notgonnachange", "Am I The Same Girl", "Breakout (fabulous party mix)", "Mama Didn't Raise No Fool", and "Now You're Not Here (Taj Calder inst)". Plus, this special package also features a bonus DVD – a full length concert, titled Tokyo Stories – as well as a special book with rare photos, an essay on the group, and a personal message too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Great work from Swing Out Sister – very different than the 80s work by them you might know, with a much more sophisticated sound, and an expansive approach to the musical backings that really takes the work somewhere new! Singer Corrine Drewrey has really matured in her style, singing with ... CD

Naturally Me
Nia, 2014. New Copy
Every new album from Angela Johnson turns out to be a treasure – but this set may well be one of the best she's done in years – and a really strong step forward for the singer! The music has this full, rich style that almost feels like classic soul at times – not a retro 60s vibe ... 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

Couple Friends
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy
Always-great work from Kindred The Family Soul – the unassuming duo who've really kept things strong over the years – and who always win us over with records like this! The pair sing together wonderfully – with a vibe that's rooted in spiritual modes, but turned towards very ... 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

Love In Flying Colors
HBD, 2013. New Copy
The best yet from Foreign Exchange! FE began as a transatlantic collaboration between rapper/singer Phone in NC and producer Nicolay in Holland – who literally got it done by exchanging files online – but since Nicolay moved closer, they've grown into one of finest indie soul acts in ... 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

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

Journey Of A Woman
Rajdulari Music, 2014. New Copy
A really great debut from Rajdulari – a singer with a hell of a strong voice, and a great ability to mix her lyrics with funky instrumental elements – maybe the best artist to do so since the debut of Jill Scott! The record's got a really special sort of punch – a quality that's ... CD

In The Red Room
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy
We haven't heard from Shaun Escoffery in years – but damn, it's really been worth the wait! This album really knocks it out of the park from the very first note – and pushes Shaun way way farther than his previous work, which we really loved a lot – into some kind of sublime ... CD

Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2014. New Copy 3CD
No lounging here – as the depth of the music is mighty inspiring – and a great reminder that there's always so much wonderful soul music we still need to discover! The package is the 11th great volume in this excellent series – and like the others, it provides a really rich ... CD

People Of Tomorrow
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet ... CD
