✨✧ Tank & The BangasLive Vibes EP (colored vinyl pressing) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Verve, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
Tarriona Ball's at the top of the mix on most numbers here – lending her fantastic mix of sung and spoken vocals to the sharp-edged grooves from the rest of the band! The combo is from New Orleans, but there's also a strong voice here that reminds us of the best recent work from LA – especially the kind of groups who don't care if they're being categorized as hip hop or soul. Titles include "Boxes & Squares", "Twice", "X's", "Ripperton Love", "Quick", and "Not Mr Rodgha's Neighborhood". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition – on yellow vinyl!)

KelelaTake Me Apart (clear vinyl deluxe edition – with download) ... LP
Warp, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.99
The stunning debut of Kelela – a singer who's been bubbling under for so long, she bursts out strongly right from the very first note! Kelela's ready to take on both the indie underground and the mainstream with this set – as the album's got a depth to rival some of the most compelling Neo Soul work from female singers in the past decade or so, but also has a tight crackle that could get her winning a lot more ears – especially given the strong reception for powerful female soul that's emerged in the past few years! The album's got a very layered sense of instrumentation – mostly produced by Jam City – and these sonic textures work really well with Kelela's voice, which slides into the mix perfectly – but never in a way that the lady buries the message in her music at all. Instead, the whole thing represents a real triumph of the contemporary – showing that there's still plenty of new territory to discover, if you know where to look. Titles include "Frontline", "Take Me Apart", "Jupiter", "Better", "LMK", "Onanon", "Turn To Dust", and "Truth Or Dare". LP, Vinyl record album
(On clear vinyl – includes download!)

Amy WinehouseBack To Black ... LP
Universal, 2006. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
An incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than before! The instrumentation on here is really mindblowing – almost at a Motown level, with isolated instruments really crackling out from the fuller backings – all set to rhythms that snap and bounce, and are almost a bit funky at times. Credit is definitely due to producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi – but Amy's vocals are really tremendous too – classic, but really personal and fresh! Titles include "Rehab", "Just Friends", "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", "He Can Only Hold Her", "Some Unholy War", and "Me & Mr Jones". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beady BelleDedication ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beady Belle never lets us down – and even though the lady's been making music for well over a decade, she still turns out some of the most consistently thoughtful soul we can think of! Forget the fact that the singer's on a Norwegian label, as the lyrics here are all in English, backed by warmly jazzy instrumentation that's always made Beady's music hugely popular with our customers for American neo-soul – and which puts her in the same territory as other classic "in the know" artists, such as Monday Michiru or Incognito! The keyboards are especially nice this time around – as thoughtful as the lyrics and the vocals – and titles include "I Run You Ragged", "Hold Your Breath", "Traces", "Dedication", "Waste Of Grace", "Last Drop Of Blood", "Can You Smile", and "Out Of Orbit". LP, Vinyl record album
