✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ JigProximo Disco ... LP
B Crack (Netherlands), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Dutch combo with some mighty tight horns – trumpet, tenor, and baritone sax – all forged together in a strongly soulful frontline! The undercurrent of the group's groove has a bit of fuzzy guitar right on the rhythms – almost in an early Baker Brothers way – but the overall sound is more complicated, with some sweet keyboard lines that sometimes get nice and playful, and provide a strong instrumental current at just the right moments. A few cuts have vocals, but we're much more partial to the instrumentals – as the vocals seem to stiffen the sound slightly. Titles include "Sideways", "Give It Back", "Balls", "Free Fluid Infusion", "Second Line", "Ali's Shuffle", "Fever", and "Buffalo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Snarky PuppyFamily Dinner Vol 2 (180 gram pressing – with DVD & download) ... LP
Universal, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Snarky Puppy serve up a second family dinner – and this time around, their sound is even more expansive than before – still strongly done in that warm, tight blend of live instrumentation, but also augmented with a host of global elements as well! The core style is still very soulful, and in that classic Snarky Puppy mode – but the group have also gotten a bit more sophisticated in the way they open up their tunes, and allow room for additional vocals and instruments – really showing some great growth, even in the way they pace the record. The music maybe builds a lot more than before – not just leaping into a tune, but finding its right sort of space – and allowing room for lots of guest contributors – including Susana Baca, Becca Stevens, Charlie Hunter, Big Ed Lee, Knower, David Crosby, and Laura Mvula. Titles include "Liquid Love", "Somebody Home", "Sing To The Mooon", "I Remember", "Don't You Know", "I Asked", and "Molino Molero". And if that's not enough, the DVD also features 5 more tracks that aren't on the core album – "Brother I'm Hungry", "Be Still", "Fuego Y Agua", "Shapons Vindaloo", and "One Hope".
