Saigon Soul RevivalHoa Am Xu'A ... LP
Saigon Supersound, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
One of the coolest concepts for a funky combo we've heard in a long time – and a group that are nicely different from some of the old school acts in recent years!

Scone Cash PlayersAs The Screw Turns ... LP
Flamingo Time/Daptone, 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
The Scone Cash Players have a name that's a but unusual, but a sound that's right on the money – thanks to some massive Hammond work from leader Adam Scone, and lots of tight saxophone lines from Ian Hendrickson-Smith – who you'll remember from his work in the Dap-Kings! The groove ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gizelle SmithRuthless Day ... LP
Jalapeno (Spain), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Gizelle Smith got caught in the rain on the cover – but you'd hardly know that, given the sunny, upbeat vibe of the album!

Andre SolomkoLe Deltaplane ... LP
Favorite (France), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
Great sounds from Andre Solomko – an artist who's been giving us some great 70s-styled music in recent years, and may well have topped himself with this fantastic set!

SorcerersSorcerers ... LP
ATA (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $22.99
A contemporary record, but one we'd rank right up there with the moodiest, most exotic African funk albums of the 70s – especially the gems we've discovered through the Ethiopiques series!

✨✧ Soul ChanceSoul Chance (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Obeah, 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
New sounds from a funky combo, but handled in a way that's very much like the vintage-styled image on the cover! The group do a great job of evoking the sound of late 60s Kingston – spinning out spare, steady grooves that are heavy on rocksteady rhythms – often with great harmonies ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

StuffOld Dreams New Planet ... LP
Gondwana (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $12.99
A very cool little combo – one that almost sounds like a funk band working with broken instruments! Stuff are really out to do something new here – borrowing bits of jazz and funk, then weaving together a sound that's equal parts acoustic and electric – but which has lots of fuzz ...

Colemine, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $20.99 24.98
Sure Fire Soul Ensemble are tighter than ever, and have really perfected a trademark sound – a style that's got the breaking drums of a vintage funky 45, the moody horns of an Ethio funk group, and the kind of organ and keyboard lines that would be right at home on a vintage album by The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Linear Labs, 2019. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the more unusual collaborations we've heard in recent years – and one that shouldn't work as well as it does!
