AkikoHit Parade – A Tribute To London Nite ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2009. Used ... $13.99
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".

✨✧ Snarky PuppyCulcha Vulcha ... CD
Universal, 2016. Used ... $7.99
Snarky Puppy find a whole new global current here – coming together in a style that mixes their usual soulful funk with a range of interesting percussion elements – in styles that sometimes remind us of our favorite creative sounds from the Brazilian or Afro Funk instrumental scene, but with a much groovier vibe overall! Half the instrumentation hits that usual Snarky groove – warm keyboards, tight horns, and sharp rhythms – but other elements inflect some cool tones and fresh feelings – as the group work in an all-instrumental format, and really allow their creative side to sparkle! It's great to see these guys break down the boundaries a bit – and the record's one of their freshest in a while – with titles that include "Tarova", "Palermo", "Big Ugly", "Beep Box", "Go", "The Simple Life", and "Semente".

Teri TobinTruth Is (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sol 2 Kep, 2014. Used ... $3.99
A breath of fresh air from Teri Tobin! Teri might be one of the most straight up soulful voices to come out of the Arizona scene in years and years – and she's one of our favorite indie soul singers of the post-millenium teens, period – truthfully sounding better than ever on Truth Is. There's a confident, mature vibe on the vocals and songwriting tip here that really carries it over in a big way – she completely owns the material. It's a testament to how strong Teri's voice is that there's such a wholly consistent vibe, even with a different producer credit for nearly every track – as it's all in her timelessly soulful comfort zone. Includes "Wonderfully Made", "Always Be You", "Love Happens", "Free Ya Mind", "Pool Of Love", "I Can't Help Want You", "Done", "Someone Else Will", "Make Beautiful", "#Shine", "I Am", "Where Would I Be" and more. 2 bonus tracks on the CD version not on the download release – "I Am Love" and "Where Would I Be?".

✨✧ Dam-FunkInvite The Light ... CD
Stones Throw, 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dam Funk does it again – really blowing us away with his crispy fresh version of funk – one that's a perfect fusion of old school modes from the 70s and 80s, and some of the more cosmic touches of the current century! The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday".
