The classic debut of Air – one of the fresher avant pop albums of the late 90s to say the least, and one of the best since then, too! Perhaps the greatest achievement here is how they deftly layer such broad influences of the preceding few decades – from soaring string film schools, to ...

(US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)
Excellent mod work from this new UK combo! The album's got a hip late 60s Go-Go feel – with screaming Hammond organ solos, bouncing bongo, and lots of fuzzed out guitars. There's more than a bit of funk in the mix, too – and you might well think of these guys as a swinging London ... (Deep Funk, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Funki Porcini's fine 1995 debut, originally issued on Shadow – with a bonus disc full of bonus tracks and remixes! Hed Phone Sex is a bit less club-oriented than the follow up Love, Pussycats and Car Wrecks. The overall feel is of a warm, smooth and trippy electronic groove that would come ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
No junk here – as this hip instrumental group take on the sounds of three Italian soundtrack masters – Ennio Morricone, Piero Umilani, and Armando Trovajoli – all while offering up some very unusual interpretations of their work! The songs are familiar, but the instrumentation is ... (Sound Library, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the straightest jazz projects we've heard in years from Timo Lassy – a set that really gets back to the kind of soulful sounds we first loved in his music – served up here with a wicked 60s vibe, and plenty of organ in the mix! The group's a quintet, with added percussion ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A much-needed full length set from RSL – a trio who've grabbed plenty of attention with their initial singles, but who sound even better on an extended session! The group's got some instrumentation that's very much after our hearts – Fender Rhodes, organ, and theremin – all used ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A tasty new one! Seksu Roba mix together modern electronics, older funky breaks, and melodic riffs that remind us of a thousand soundtracks from days gone by. The album's got a simple elegance that's just great – with no real vocals apart from the occasional stray sample, and a very unified ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
All instrumental sounds from Adrian Younge's Electronique Void project – a record that almost makes even more sense than the original, given the strong placement of electronic elements in the music! In fact, the keyboards and analogue elements might well be the main draw from Black Noise ... (Deep Funk, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
