Harleighblu's vocals are in some wonderful company here – a host of different guests and producers who each give the individual tunes a special flavor – while still allowing the soulful lady to very much do her thing! The vocals are maybe even bolder than on the previous record – sometimes with the brashness of the best of the contemporary underground soul scene, sometimes with even more grit and a raspy quality that almost feels timeless – alongside help from SpectraSoul, Brother Mike, Audio Sparks, Captain Supernova, Azure, J-Felix, Lost Midas, and others. Titles include "Forget", "Another One", "Reverse", "For Fun", "Tell Em", "Meant To Be", "MMM", and "Real Good". CD

MoonchildPlease Rewind ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Really really wonderful work from Moonchild – even better than we remember from the first time around! The group have this perfect balance of vocals and jazzy instrumentation – played by a trio who handle all the instruments themselves, then produce the whole set – in support of vocalist Amber Navran, who also plays tenor on the record! Rhythms are spare and crackling – never overdone, and just the right sort of laidback funk for Navran's wonderful vocals – sliding out in this smooth, slinky way that has plenty of jazz undercurrents, and no sort of commercial styles at all. A decade ago, these guys might have been headed towards major label stardom – but it's the indie, underground nature of the record that's going to keep them strong for years – as you'll hear on cuts that include "The Truth", "Nobody", "More Than Ever", "Winter Breeze", "Just A Minute", "Moonlight", and "I'll Make It Easy".
