La BatteriaLa Batteria ... CD
Penny (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
A contemporary combo, but one who hit the style of classic sound library funk right on the money – with a killer approach that makes the album bristle like a vintage set all the way through! And trust us on this – these guys aren't "retro" or going for some sort of easy 60s modes – and instead, they really find the best way to turn out the sort of small combo funk that you'd hear from one of the small Italian sound library labels of the 70s – from the sharp instrumentation, right down to the production – and especially the best sense of economy and focus when turning out a groove. The music is heavy on keyboards – Hammond, Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and more – but also isn't just one of these copycat keyboard affairs, like the flurry of 80s styled work on the market. We're darn hard to please, and naturally suspicious of material like this – to take our word that when we say it's great, it's plenty darn great! Titles include "Espresso", "Dilemma", "Manifesto", "Vice Versa", "Chimera", "Scenario", "Formula", and "Vigilante". CD

Cometa (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... $19.99
A contemporary Italian combo, but one who hit a very strong 70s sound library vibe – so much so that the older Cometa label decided to issue this album by the group! And honestly, the set fits right in with the same classic spirit of the legendary Cometa releases from the 70s – all the right sort of funky touches on guitar, keyboards, and even a bit of flute and trumpet too – served up on these beautiful tunes with a really evocative spirit, and recorded without any sort of too-clean, too-modern sound in the production. Titles include "Three Times Of Violence", "Ambush Of Summer", "Burglary Times", "Hospital Shootout", "Shifting Gears", and "Black Belt Ricky Funko". CD

VariousDelaware Road ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
A cool collection of sound-library tunes – all put together here as the soundtrack to Delaware Road – a fiction based loosely on the lives of legendary BBC electronic musicians Delia Derbyshire & John Baker! The work is all contemporary, but has a style that really goes back to those early years of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – with lots of analogue electronic elements at play, sometimes in moody soundscapes, sometimes in styles that have a few more modern touches – but still with a relatively spare, spooky sound overall! Put together by Buried Treasure, in tribute to the vintage material they've reissued – with tracks that include "Cloiser" by Revbjelde, "And We Begin" by Loose Capacitor, "Que" by Asterion, "Closing Distance" by Robin Lee, "Gather The Winds" by Tongues Of Fire, "Hundreds Tens & Units" by The Twelve Hour Foundation, "Twit" by Monoslapper, and "The Shag" by Trouble & Strife.

✨✧ Massive Suits Quartet (Dandu Teru)Full Moon Wizard – Mood Music & Unknown Soundtrack Themes ... LP
Ubiquity, 2015. Used ... Out Of Stock
A contemporary set, but one that's trying for a sound library vibe – in particular, the kind of moody, more electronic work that was coming from the French and UK scenes in the 70s! There's some funky elements here, but they're all moving nice and slow – brooding bass stepping slowly underneath spacey keyboards – all composed and arranged by Gregoire Marty, with a retro vibe that's somewhere in a late 70s/early 80s style. Titles include "March From The Moon", "Full Moon Wizard", "The Lake", "Dancing With Her", "Nymphs", "Spaceship Jazz", and "Grand Empty". (New Grooves, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album
