James Hunter SixHold On! (with download) ... LP
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
The great James Hunter – sounding even better than before – thanks to sock-solid soul production from Daptone Records! James already recorded at Daptone Studios before – for his previous record – but this set's completely in the hands of the label, from top to bottom – and features wicked Bosco Mann production, and the best sort of vintage soul instrumentation that Hunter's ever had! The groove here is mid 60s soul, with a slight mod undercurrent – the sort of Detroit-informed work that always played big with UK soul fans, but given a slight R&B twist at times too – especially in the great use of organ on most of the cuts. Hunter's always been a great singer, but he's never hit these heights before – and the blend of talents here is perfect. Titles include "Stranded", "Satchel Foot", "In The Dark", "If That Don't Tell You", "This Is Where We Came In", "A Truer Heart", and "Hold On". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download.)

Deep Street SoulCome Alive ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... On April 8, 2016 (delayed)
Deep Street Soul are deeper than ever here – coming across with full-on, nonstop funky action – right from the very first drum breaks that start out the record! The set's got the group moving with incredible tightness – a razor-sharp instrumental core to beat the rest of the deep funk competition – topped on most cuts by vocals from May Johnson, who's easily one of the most unbridled singers we've heard working with a group like this! Some cuts have nicely noisy electric piano (Wurlitzer?) – which gives these guys a different core than some of the more Hammond-heavy groups – and the record also features guest vocals from Kylie Auldist and Joshua Taveres – but honestly, we like May's vocals the best! Titles include "Out Of The Gates", "Little Ray", "Done Me Wrong", "Big C", "Deux Freres", "The Hardest Part Is Knowing", "Love On Tap", and "Sweet Sugar Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Electric Peanut Butter CompanyElectric Peanut Butter Company – Trans-Atlantic Psych Classics Vol 2 (peanut butter colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful, and which wonderfully skirts a space between all the different genres you'd be likely to find in the coolest crate digger's collection! There's vocals on many tracks – but slung out over core instrumentation that really gets things going from a soulful perspective – so much so that even some of the more rockish moments soon get plenty funky. Keyboards are wonderful, production is rock-solid, and the whole thing's exactly the kind of nugget you'd guess from the title. Tracks include "Going In Circles", "Christophe Waltz", "Tape Lifter", "Cold Blood", "Dreams", "Mono Man", "Big Tweed", and "Backstreet Wall". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with bonus dowload of whole album!)
