GalacticCarnivale Electricos ... CD
Anti, 2012. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Spiritually resonant party funk from Galactic – an album that nods it's head to a global carnival, be it Mardi Gras in their native NOLA, or Brazil, or the global community at large – ambitious and genre-straddling grooves! The sounds and songs are thematic, and it works incredibly well thanks to Galactic's ever-expansive galaxy of influences and ability. For this record, they've reached out to diverse roster of New Orleans artists – from Mardi Gras Indian War Chief Juan Pardo, to a couple of the Neville Brothers, to carnival rocker Dave Shaw, to NOLA hip hop legend Mystikal. On the international tip, they eam up with Samba poet Moyseis Marques and others. The sounds encompass straight up swampy funk to marching band brass and drums and so much more – a rich stew from the increasingly impressive Galactic! Includes "Ha Di Ka" feat Big Chief Juan Pardo & The Golden Comanche, "Magalenha" feat Casa Samba", "Hey Na Na" feat David Shaw and Maggie Koerner, "Voyageton Flag", "Out In The Streets" feat Cyril & Ivan Neville, "Julou", "Move Fast" feat Mystikal & Mannie Fresh, "Guero Bounce", "Attack", "O Coco Da Galinha" feat Moyseis Marques, "Ash Wednesday Sunrise" and more.

✨✧ Deep Street SoulCome Alive ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD
