AM & Shawn LeeLa Musique Numerique ... CD
Park The Van, 2013. Used ... $3.99
Loads of great electro sounds here – bassy keyboards, splashy beats, and some cool moogy moments – all wrapped up in the kind of heavy funk we've always loved from Shawn Lee! This cool collaboration with AM furthers the pair's step into the best sounds of the 80s – modes that almost feel like digging up the most underground funk of the generation at points, but which also get some pretty tuneful songwriting at others – great vocals that themselves are pretty electronic, and often echo that great moment in the years past punk and disco – when genres broke down for a bit, and music got especially wonderful! The set isn't totally retro – leave it to the pair to bring in some of their own voice as well – and titles include "Good Blood", "Suffer Like Me", "Replay", "In The Aftermath", "Two Times", "Louna", "Iron Leaf", and "Special Disco".

Black GrassHundred Days In One ... CD
Catskills (UK), 2006. Used ... $1.99
The first album in a number of years from Black Grass – and they seem to have used the time to pick up a whole host of new musical influences! The core soulful style of their debut is still strongly in place, but this set also features a fair bit of dubbier, dirtier sounds as well – a bit more grit in the grooves, and a definite influence from both Jamaican and hip hop-based spheres of production! The shift is a good one, and keeps Black Grass from sounding too "turn of the 21st Century" – and gives their music a nastier undercurrent than we remember, almost with a bit of Ninja Tune bite, but less abstract overall. Album features guest work by Jehst, Okou, Maylay Sparks, Rider Shafique, and Micall Parknsun – and titles include "So Many Ways", "Don't Try", "Sweet To Taste", "Nemesis", "Oh Jah", "The Floating Wizard", "Nobody Knows (It's Sunday)", and "Lucha Contra De La Injustica".

Dining RoomsTre (US version) ... CD
Guidance, 2003. Used ... $5.99
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot more than simple tricks and gimmicks. There's loads of really solid tunes in here – sly numbers that sneak up on you with a subtle approach to the craft, gently burrowing in and taking root – somehow making the album that much more compelling overall. A number of tracks have some wonderfully languid vocals, some male and some female – and these tunes fall nicely next to instrumental numbers with a very evocative approach. Titles include "Anima Per Amarti", "Tunnel", "La Citta Nuda", "Fluxus", "Flamenco Sketches", "Dreamy Smiles", "You", "African Loungesters", and a nice cover of Sun Ra's "Astro Black"! CD

✨✧ Los Amigos InvisiblesCommercial ... CD
Nacional, 2009. Used ... $6.99
Commercial but never cloying – a great return to form for Los Amigos Invisibles, a group who always make us forget the barriers of language with their warmly seductive grooves! The production here is nice and warm – helped out with contributions from DJ Afro on a few tracks, and done in styles that remind us a lot of our favorite European work of the start of the decade – particularly some of the clubby sounds of Paris, from before that scene got a bit too trashed up. Titles include "Mentiras", "Plastic Woman", "In Luv With U", "Como Sabes Tu", "Dulce", "Es La Verdad", and "Oyeme Nena". CD

Ennio Morricone & OthersEnnio Morricone Remixes Vol 1 ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used ... $6.99
A soundtrack for the 21st Century – original film tunes written and scored by il maestro Morricone, re-mixed and re-done by the Compost Records collective! Compost isn't normally as into the soundtrack bag as some of their other contemporaries on the European scene – which is why this project is even fresher than other remix projects of its type. Most of the artists here focus on the core elements of the tunes – going for the one time change, tonal passage, or light melody that makes the tune – then extrapolating that into a whole new work of their own design. Morricone's never sounded so contemporary, and the package is filled with new grooves that really change up the pace. Titles include "Ninna Nanna In Blu" by Raw Deal, "Amore Come Dolore" by Needs, "La Cugina" by Amalgamation Of Soundz, "Rivoluzione (con-fusion mix)" by Butti 49, "La Moda" by International Pony, "Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo" by Swell Session, "Beat No 3" by Leroy Hanghofer, and "Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene" by Alex Attias.

Ennio Morricone & OthersMorricone Remix – Morricone Rmx ... CD
Reprise/Warner, 2001. Used ... $2.99
As any reader of these pages will know, we're nuts about Ennio Morricone – the greatest Italian soundtrack composer ever, and quite possibly one of the greatest composers to have ever walked the face of this planet! Here, a similarly Morricone-mad bunch of folks pay tribute to the maestro, by remixing tracks from his classic soundtracks of the 60s and 70s! Titles include "The Man With The Harmonica" by Apollo Four Forty, "Chi Mai" by Nightmares On Wax, "Giocoso, Gioioso" by Groove Corporation, "La Bambola Come Maddalena" by Sofa Surfers, "La Lucertola" by De Phazz, "Clan Of The Sicilians" by DJ Dick of Rocker's Hi-Fi, "Il Grande Silencio" by Thievery Corporation, and "Belinda May" by Fantastic Plastic Machine. 13 tracks in all!
