✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

✨✧ FrightnrsNothing More To Say (with download) ... LP
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Frightnrs have plenty more to say here – and they say it in a really sharp-edged approximation of older rocksteady modes! The group are contemporary, but like the best acts on Daptone, they've got an instantly classic feel – thanks to instrumentation and production that take us right back to late 60s Kingston, but with some of the sharper funky currents we've come to expect from the label! And while The Frightnrs may pitch themselves as an old school reggae act, they're also one that have a heavy dose of soul – almost a late night New Jersey current to their music at times – as if the All Platinum/Stang label put out their own version of Jamaican soul. The approach is great, and very unique – and titles include "Hey Brother", "Gotta Find A Way", "What Have I Done", "Nothing More To Say", "All My Tears", "Purple", "Dispute", and "Till Then".

✨✧ HeliocentricsSunshine Makers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A masterful psychedelic funk soundtrack by Malcolm Catto & The Heliocentrics – a perfectly choice combo to score a documentary about the rise of LSD in the 60s! The set is all instrumental, and the group really goes above and beyond the call of duty on it, crafting an appropriately trippy – we're talking about a doc that tells the story of the 2 counterculture chemists at the heart of the LSD manufacturing underground of their era – but still remarkably cohesive set of signature Heliocentrics psych-funk-soul. There's a real sense of dramatic tension, and while the music is used incidentally in the film, it plays out wonderfully here as a standalone album on Soundway, with full length compositions that didn't make it into the film uncut! Includes "The Sunshine Makers", "The History Of LSD", "200 Kilos", "Chase Scene", "The Acid Trial", "Escape", "Scene Goes Bad", "Uptown Street Scene", "The Trip (Titles)", "Tim In Prison", "Owsley Bust Scene", "The Brotherhood Of Eternal Love", "Bikers" and more.
