✨✧ Flying LotusYou're Dead! (with download) ... LP
Warp, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 24.99
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from cosmic soul jazz to leftfield hip hop! An impressive guest roster from both realms participate – with appearances by Herbie Hancock (!!!), Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, frequent collaborator and stylistic sibling Thundercat, strings arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson and others. Standout moments include the tracks "Tesla" and "Moment Of Hesitation", both with some incredible keyboards by Herbie Hancock, plus the uber-moody, Ennio Morricone-sampled "Turtles" – but the whole thing is great, and shows that the Flying Lotus phenomenon is still in ascension, circa 2014. Other cuts include "Cold Dead", "Never Catch Me" with Kendrick Lamar, "Dead Man's Tetris" with Snoop Dogg, "Turkey Dog Coma", "Stirring", "Obligatory Cadence", "The Protest" and more.

Natalia LafourcadeHasta La Raiz ... CD
Sony, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
A really wonderful record from this up-and-coming singer – a set that features Spanish language lyrics throughout, but has this universal appeal right from the very first note! Natalia's got a way of crossing generations and styles with her music – a bit like some of the best creative work we've dug from Brazil in recent years, from artists like Kassin and some of his contemporaries. And the retro look of the cover is well-placed – because this is classic stuff that's very different from other contemporary Latin pop, and which has currents of jazz, bossa, and other warmer styles in the music – all a perfect match for Lafourcade's dreamy voice! Titles include "Vamanos Negrito", "Para Que Sufrir", "Hasta La Raiz", "Lo Que Construimos", "Estoy Lista", and "No Mas Lllorar". (Latin, New Grooves) CD

Norvis JuniorPyrrhic Victory Disc 03 EP ... LP
Newmath, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
A spacey, still soul-steeped bit of abstract beatcraft and vocals by Norvis Junior – a debut EP that should catapult him to the kind of acclaim you see from cats on the Brainfeeder camps and other progressive acts, circa the mid teens! Includes "Not Normal", "More Shakers", "ODB", WronWay2Love", "Kissin On Your Back", "Believers" and "Wave01". LP, Vinyl record album

ThundercatApocalypse (with download) ... LP
Brainfeeder, 2013. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 24.98
Thundercat at the top of his game – delivering spacey synth soul backdrops that are as insistent as they are innovative – paired with emotionally invested vocals and lyricism! Thundercat has a kinship with Brainfeeder founder and creative partner Flying Lotus, particularly given their mix of cosmic jazz funk elements paired with the tighter beats and iberating production touches of boundary-busting hip hop. That said, Thundercat has a more song-based approach – with accessible songs and appealingly soulful vocals – what more could we ask for? Seriously some of the best material yet from the Brainfeeder camp! Includes "Tenfold", "Heartbreaks + Setbacks", "The Life Aquatic", "Special Stage", "Tron Song", "Seven", "Oh Sheit It's X", "Without You", "Lotus And The Jondy", "Evangelion", "We'll Die" and "A Message For Austin/Praise The Lord/Enter The Void".
