✨✧ VariousOrganic Soul – Real Soul From The Roots ... CD
Soul Brother/Expansion (UK), 2001. Used ... $4.99
Sick of all the modern R&B that never seems to go anywhere? Check this great collection of some of the best indie NuSoul from America – put together by the folks at London's Soul Brother record shop – and prepare to be impressed! The Soul Brother crew selected tunes by 5 of today's best underground soul acts – all fiercely independent artists who are working from the fringes to transform the sound of soul music, bringing in a much needed infusion of quality, and a firm commitment to holding up the standards the genre maintained back in the glory days of the 70s. We sell work by all these artists on individual CDs, but the package itself is a great way to sample their work before dipping in – and the vinyl version marks the first time most of this stuff's ever been on wax! Titles include "Keep Your Head Up", "Just A Little", "Groovin"', and "You Are My Friend" by Laurnea; "Good Lovin" and "I've Got It" by Ledisi; "Soul From The Abyss", "What's Wrong With You", and "See Ya In My Dreams" by N'Dambi; "Do Ya Wanna Do", "The Pocket", and "Spirit" by Karen Bernod; and "Treat You Right", "Rise", and "Thank You" by Ian.

Karl Denson's Tiny UniverseBrother's Keeper ... CD
Shanachie, 2009. Used ... $6.99
Karl Denson's come a long way here since his earlier funk sides from years back – and for the record, his tiny universe gets expanded nicely by the addition of Meshell Ndegeocello on bass! The groove here is rich and full – almost a late 60s funky soul approach – but harder than we're used to hearing from Denson, with some especially nice drums at the bottom, which keep things quite raw, even when the songs are slightly sweetened up – and Meshell's basslines are definitely a great component of the set, as most tunes bump along with a groove that's strongly directed up from the bottom! Lead vocals are by Denson, who also plays sax and flute – and titles include "Shake It Out", "Where It Counts", "Brother's Keeper (parts 1 & 2)", "Monica", "Expressions", "Empty Soul", "Just Got Paid", "Take It Down", "Mighty Rebel", and "The Drums Of War".

✨✧ Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

Purpose, 2012. Used ... $6.99
A joyous celebration of Angela Johnson's first decade in soul music – and a smoking little set that revisits some of her best tracks from the time, and sets them on fire all over again! The package is way more than just a batch of remixes – a lots of tracks here are re-thought from the ground up, and re-fitted with a set of new sounds and styles that really illustrate Angela's growth as an artist over time – and the broad, collaborative reach she's had in the contemporary underground! Titles include "Hurts Like Hell (Makoto rmx)", "All In Me (Yannis rmx)", "You're Here With Me (MasSheen rmx)", "Wait 4 U (Josh Milan rmx)", "Rescue Me (Blu-Swing rmx)", "All I Need (Crank Brothers rmx)", "Better (Micky More rmx)", "Be Myself (Kemit & Jalon rmx)", "They Don't Know (Angela Johnson rmx)", and the great new track "Don't Take It Out On Me".
