AkikoHit Parade – A Tribute To London Nite ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... $24.99
Man, Akiko always knows how to keep things interesting – always moving between different genres and styles, to serve up a fresh new groove with each release! This set's got the singer hitting a host of British rock tunes, mostly from the 80s – doing them with a harder edge than you might expect from her other albums – some of the heavier modes picked up on her R&B tribute, but a lot sharper overall! There's less jazz in the mix than before, replaced by guitars that fit these tunes well – and there's almost a new wave feel to the record at points. Titles include versions of "Breakaway", "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", "Sugar Baby Love", "Video Killed The Radio Star", "99 Red Balloons", "Wake Up Boo", "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me", and "Goody Two Shoes".

Kofy Brown (The Real Kofy Brown)Skarlet Stew/Getting Low ... 7-inch
Simba, 2008. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Two blazing tracks from Kofy Brown's Soul Rock opus! The a-side "Skarlet Stew" kicks off the album, and it's leads off with a fuzzy electric guitar line and syncopated beat that fires things up, but Kofy Brown's lead vocals are pure soul. A tight modern funk rock tune unlike anything else we've heard lately! "Getting Low" also a gritty little tune with a fair bit of dissonance in the mix, but again, Kofy's vocals are wonderful – with some heavily rumbling bass and drums, a jazzy trumpet, and skittering keys.

Foreign ExchangeTales From The Land Of Milk & Honey (colored vinyl) ... LP
HBD, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
The deepest work yet from Foreign Exchange – and as hard as it is for us to believe, a record that unofficially kicks off the second decade of the one-time transatlantic partnership of Nicolay and Phonte – which has evolved into a bonafide indie soul supergroup with Zo!, Tamisha Waden and Carmen Rodgers! Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey is as full of life as anything we've heard from them, and honestly, a record we'll be able to keep coming back to for years. On the production front, Nicolay has found a way to pay homage to the past half century of breezy soul and R&B, club grooves, bossa and more, and distill it all into a fairly tight sound that belongs to FE+. Phonte is as vocally charismatic on his cuts as ever, whether he's playing it straight, or just having a little bit of fun – like when he's affecting a British accent on "Asking For A Friend" – and the women's voices are never less than beautiful, on both the lead vocal turns and the hooks. Includes "Milk And Honey", "Work It To The Top", "Truce", "Disappear", "Sevenths And Ninths", "Asking ForA Friend", "Body", "As Fast As You Can", "Face In The Reflection" and "Until The Dawn (Milk And Honey Pt II)".
