✨✧ Eric LauNew Territories ... CD
Ubiquity, 2008. Used ... $5.99
Eric Lau steps into some definite new territory here – building off his production work for Dudley Perkins, Lupe Fiasco, and others – and emerging strongly as a lead artist on his own! Lau's got plenty of great help on the set – an array of London-based singers who help flesh out his cracklingly soulful beats nicely – taking the tunes into some very hip areas that quickly step between neo soul, hip hop, and slightly more cosmic modes! There's a really unified feel to the record – despite the variety of voices in the mix – and the whole thing almost feels like a mini-suite of sorts, a kind of more street-sensitive take on spacier styles floating around in the underground of late – brought nicely down to earth by Lau. Titles include "Right Side", "Don't Do It To", "Confession Lounge", "Final Chance", "Don't Let Them", "Show Me", "Begin", "Let It Out", and "Hope". (New Grooves, Neo Soul) CD

Lewis TaylorLost Album (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Slow Reality/Hacktone, 2004. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
A pop masterpiece from UK soul singer Lewis Taylor – easily his tightest album to date! The set's got a magical feel that reminds us strongly of our favorites from 70s radio on both sides of the Atlantic – warmly compressed instrumentation that slides in nicely alongside the vocals, sunnily grooving in a sound that's incredibly well-crafted, yet also extremely personal. The production is light years ahead of that on Lewis' other self-released albums – at a level that rivals the best studio work from LA or London in the early 70s, and which firmly pushes Lewis out of the indie Neo Soul ghetto, into a style that's much more in the vein of classic AOR pop. The whole thing's a real departure from Lewis' other work – which may turn off a few folks, but which has us appreciating his talents more than ever! Titles include "Send Me An Angel", "Listen Here", "Lost", "New Morning", "Yeah", "Please Help Me If You Can", "One More Mystery", and "Say I Love You". This US version comes in a cool 5" gatefold cover that's way better than the UK version – and it also features 3 bonus acoustic tracks that include "Lucky", "Track", and "Song". CD
