Alice RussellTo Dust (180 gram presing) ... LP
Tru Thoughts/Differ-Ant (UK), 2013. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
Dusty grooves from Alice Russell – a set that's steeped in heavy soul influences all the way through – from her great vocals on the top, to the tight instrumentation in the middle, to all the heavy drums that keep things kicking on the bottom! The album may well be Russell's tightest outing to day – and a set that's done in close collaboration with Alex Cowan – who really helps move Alice's music forward strongly with some new elements that never appeared in previous outings! There's some cool little twists and turns in the music – slight use of contemporary keys and electronics alongside the live funk elements – blended in nicely, without any sense of gimmick at all – and really helping bridge the space between the deep funk underground where Russell's worked strongly for years, and the bigger soul mainstream she could well dominate in the future. Titles include "Twin Peaks", "I Loved You", Citizens", "To Dust", "Hard & Strong", "For A While", "A To Z", and "Let Go". Features bonus track "Different".

✨✧ Khun NarinKhun Narin's Electric Phin Band ... CD
Innovative Leisure, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really weird, really wonderful sounds from rural Thailand – played by a group who have almost an ancient vibe overall, but who also echo lots of cool psychedelic elements of the 60s! The lead instrument in the group is a phin – a three-stringed, lute-like instrument which is electrified, and run through a lot of distortion and effects pedals – with a result that's somewhere between electric sitar records of the late 60s, and some of the headier corners of the psychedelic underground! Other instrumentation leans heavily on spare but powerful percussion – played by a few players at once, which creates this collaborative rhythmic quality that's really cool – and very different than just having a single drummer – and the tunes are all instrumental, with a spare bassline holding the whole thing together. A contemporary group who had to be coaxed out to the global mainstream – and one who have a distinctly timeless sound! Titles include "Lam Phu Thai", "Lai Sing", "Sut Sanaen #2", and "Show Wong Khun Narin". (Global Grooves, Deep Funk) CD
