III ... LP Innovative Leisure, 2014. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
The best work so far from this ultra-hip trio – an amazing combination of keyboards, bass, and drums – served up in styles that are rooted in funk and jazz, but go to so many other places as well! The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their ... (New Grooves, Deep Funk)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Way Home ... LP Colemine, 2017. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A fantastic album from this increasingly hip combo – a group who were already pretty darn funky at their start, but who've just kept on moving into really amazing territory over the years! The sound here is maybe the equivalent of the depth and shifts that El Michels brought to the deep funk ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon!

Jambu ... LP Nacional, 2017. Near Mint- ...
Fantastic funky work from Jungle Fire – a group we've heard before, but who never seemed to blow us away this much! In a moment when so many other groups are grabbing an Afro Funk sort of vibe, these guys hit a space that's almost completely their own – more Latin America, taken across ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An organ trio, and one with plenty of soul – romping drums, riffing guitar, and some mighty sweet work on the Hammond by Delvon Lamarr! This is the first we've ever heard of the group, but they're rock solid and right on the money – working with a lean, hard style that's completely ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Damn! Orgone just keep getting better and better – to the point where we might almost say that there's no difference between the strength of the group's sound and all the funky 70s acts that have inspired their music! The instrumentation and production are right on the money throughout ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A nice one from Nashville modern funk veterans Sky Hi – balancing hard grooving grit and emotionally resonant soulfulness on this great set for the increasingly impressive GED Soul label! The group has been kicking around the region for the better part of a decade leading up to this album, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
All the sweet sounds that make the Something About April album so great – served up here without any vocals at all! The core album feels like some ultra-cool, super-dope soul record from the 70s – and without any lyrics, these tunes almost take on more of a soundtrack feel – but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
