Little Axe, 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet Cambodian pop from the 80s – recorded by two artists who'd emigrated to Portland, then issued this album only on cassette back in the day!

Woima CollectiveFrou Frou Rokko ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Nothing frou frou about this heavy little set – as the record's a rock solid batch of African rhythms, served up with a distinctively Ethiopian feel – at a level that's even groovier than the group's first album! The collective clearly take some key inspiration from the more ... read more CD

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2010. New Copy ... $12.99
An amazing set of Ethiopian-styled grooves – recorded recently, but with a sound that's right up there with some of our favorite Mulatu albums of the 70s!

PMG (Austria), 1984. New Copy ... $14.99
Xtasy have a name and a look that feels a lot like some of the mainstream American soul acts of the time – and the sound of this album definitely fits that image too!

Dead Sea (Israel), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic debut from Gili Yalo – an important artist on the current Tel Aviv scene, but one with roots in Ethiopia, too – a mix of cultural modes that he works to great effect on this album! The sounds here definitely echo some of the hippest Ethio sounds of the 70s – but the ... read more CD

Clive ZandaClive Zanda Is Here With Dat Kinda Ting (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gayap/Cree (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.98
A totally great little record that refers to itself as "calypsojazz innovations" – but which is even better than that label might make you think! The groove here is hardly calypso – as it's funkier, chunkier, and a much more heavy take on inspirations from the islands than we' ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
