D'AngeloBlack Messiah ... LP
RCA, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... $22.99 23.98
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has definitely been formative, as he comes back here with a righteous power that really blows away all his previous work! D'Angelo still loves the slow beat and mellow approach to funk – but he's also picked up a lot more fuzz and freak, too – righteous energy that more than lives up to the Black Messiah promised by the title, as do the lyrics. Instrumentation includes work by Questlove on drums, Roy Hargrove on trumpet, and Jesse Johnson on guitar – and the grooves have these tripping, slow-percolating elements that really give the lyrics a great sort of crackle. More than worth the wait – as you'll hear on titles that include "Back To The Future (parts 1 & 2)", "Sugah Daddy", "Really Love", "1000 Deaths", "Ain't That Easy", "Betray My Heart", "The Door", and "Till It's Done (Tutu)". LP, Vinyl record album

Issa Rae & OthersInsecure – Music From The HBO Original Series Season 2 ... LP
RCA, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
We're huge fans of the series Insecure – and over and above the performance and vision of the show by Issa Rae, we're also big fans of the music – which features a great array of contemporary artists working on the forefront of soul music – really taking things far in a range of 21st Century modes! This album features a few tracks with Issa delivering some of her trademark freestyle breakout rhymes – but most of the package is comprised of songs that feature in scenes from the show – music that also makes for a great introduction to the new world of underground soul. Rae performs "Go Low", "Cheater For One", "Ho For It", "Rejected", and "Bloct" – and other tracks include "Supermodel" by SZA, "Insecure" by Jazmine Sullivan & Bryston Tiller, "Crew" by Goldlink with Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy, "A Lite" by Buddy, "Real Bitch Problems" by TT The Artist, "Lowkey" by Kari Faux, "Poppin" by Rico Nasty, "The Juice" by Hero, "Hit The Ceiling" by Lion Babe, "Feels Like" by NAO, "Fine Lines" by Jorja Smith, "Morning Blues" by Smiles Davis with Bosco and Tola, and "Gucci Ice Cream" by Girls In The Yard.
