✨✧ Chandeliers/Song For GodsCruisin/Boss ... 7-inch
Potions, 2017. New Copy ... About March 28, 2017
Fresh takes on classic funky synth electro from Chandeliers and Songs For Gods – a pair of Chicago groups with some shared players and differing, though similarly inspired jams on this great little split single and first release on Potions! The Chandeleliers track "Cruisin'" is stellar,and a pretty unique mix of styles – starting with squelchy synth and drums lazily floating in, then holding a steady beat – then some moody astral soul vocals take it to a deeper level. "Boss" by Song For Gods is a little more grounded, with some sweet female vocals in the mix and a less spacey vibe. Nice stuff! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Silt ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $7.99
The drums move hard and fast on "Muziqa Muziqa" – and the organ lines do too – peppering this Ethio groover with a really offbeat sound, while tight horn lines keep a soulful finish over the top – and Seyoum's vocals move up and down in a really incredible range! "Muziqa Slit" is the kind of funky nugget that first got folks digging for Ethiopian cuts many years back – a romping break in the way the drums, bass, and guitar start out the cut – before cool organ and horns come into the mix and make it even more wonderful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first minute or so – working out sounds that are incredibly fresh and powerful! "AWOL" has more horns in the lead, and a great funky bassline at the core – a bad-stepping little number that's equal parts Afro and Funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Uptown SyndicateHot Oklahoma Nights EP (2 x 7 inch) ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch ... $19.99
Fast-riffing funk from the Uptown Syndicate – maybe one of the few funk bands we've ever heard from the Oklahoma scene – and certainly one of the grooviest! These guys got their start playing parties at the start of the 70s – most likely with a sound that was more in the southern showband mode – but by the time of these tracks, they've really grown into something great on their own! The upbeat tunes have this incredibly sharp guitar tangled up with the rhythms – played with amazing dexterity, really setting the grooves on fire – and the package's one mellow track is a fantastic harmony soul number, showcasing a whole new side of the group's talents. The Uptown Syndicate never issued a full album – and this four-track collection may be the closest we'll ever get – with titles that include "Just Be Yourself", "Bloated", "Uptown", and "You're A Woman". 7-inch, Vinyl record

VolcanosGotta Be A False Alarm/Movin & Groovin ... 7-inch
Record Shack (Austria), 1965. New Copy ... $4.99
A killer Northern Soul single from the Volcanos – a group who definitely earn their explosive name with "Gotta Be A False Alarm"! The tune runs off tight right from the start – with this mighty Detroit-styled groove, and rock-solid vocals that have the lead singer trading lines beautifully with the harmonies from the group! "Movin & Groovin" does exactly what the title promises – and kicks into gear with this wonderful horn part over triple-time drums – all instrumental, and delivered at a level that hardly makes you miss the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
