Black Market BrassCheat & Start A Fight ... CD
Secret Stash, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
Don't let the "brass" in the title throw you off – as these guys are more of an Afro Funk ensemble than any sort of New Orleans-styled group – a combo that's actually only got a single trumpet and trombone in the mix, alongside loads of riffing guitar and heavy percussion! ...

Brownout Presents – Brown SabbathBrown Sabbath 2 ... CD
Ubiquity, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A sweet return to Brown Sabbath territory – that wicked blend of deep funk rhythms and fuzzy guitar, served up by the Brownout collective! The groove has some of the Latin elements that you'd know from Adrian Quesada's other work – but the rising guitar lines dominate a lot more – ... read more CD

Don BryantDon't Give Up On Love ... CD
Fat Possum, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
The first album in decades from Memphis soul legend Don Bryant – a singer who hardly even gave us any recordings back when he was in his prime!

Budos BandBurnt Offering ... CD
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
Some of the deepest, heaviest work we've ever heard from the Budos Band – as you might guess from the album's dark title and cover! There's a bit of a heavy metal look to the package, but the sounds within are still the righteous funk we've always loved from Budos – yet are also ... read more CD

The first full-length from Tanika Charles – a deep funk singer with a difference! Tanika definitely works in some of the old school soul modes that you'll know from other artists on the Record Kicks label – but there's also a bit more of a contemporary crackle to her music, too – ... read more CD

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, ... read more CD

Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ... read more CD

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A really fantastic album from the legendary Lee Fields – a set that blows us away every bit as much as his stellar My World album! Like that set, this one's got kind of a moody early 70s vibe – almost a New Jersey soul approach at times, but tinged with more southern modes – ... read more CD

✨✧ Izo FitzroySkyline ... CD
Jalapeno (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
Izo Fitzroy may look like a languid country singer on the cover (we're not sure why – maybe it's the old American car) – but she comes across with a deeply soulful sound on the album, and a strong raspy edge in her vocals that comes as a mighty nice surprise! The set's definitely going ... read more CD

A definite stinger from Hard Proof – an Austin-based funk combo who really know how to blend the best of both worlds!

Maybe the sharpest set so far from Harleighblu – a record that's got the soul singer working here with Starkiller, who brings a sharpness to the music that really sets her vocals free!
