QuanticAtlantic Oscillations ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (pic cover)... $21.99 22.99
A masterpiece from Will "Quantic" Holland – an artist who always surprises us with new sounds, but really blows us away with the depth in this set! Quantic started out groovy, then got funky and soulful, then embraced a range of Latin cultures in later work – and throughout that long musical journey, he's never failed to keep on growing – always stepping forward towards new sonic horizons, rather than be content to serve up the same sounds that got him attention in the first place! Subtle strings are added to beats (both acoustic and electric), keyboards, and just the right use of vocals from Nidia Gongora, Alice Russell, Denita Odigie, and Holland himself – so that the album's got this balance between instrumental activity and lyrical passages – the shifting voices never taking the spotlight away from the larger musical vision that Quantic uses to guide the whole proceedings. Sly5thAve also adds in some great work – and titles include "Tierra Mama", "Incendium", "Divergence", "Is it Your Intention", "La Reflexion", "Orquidea", "September Blues", and "Now Or Never".

BamboosBy Special Arrangement ... LP
BMG (Australia), 2019. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99 31.98
The Bamboos really take the "special arrangement" here seriously – as the record has the group moving way past their funk combo roots, to work in a set of large orchestral arrangements that really transform their sound! If anything, the record's a lot more soulful than recent releases – as the larger charts are used to flesh out the vocals in this wonderful way – evoking the complexity of classic soul recordings on Atlantic and Chess by the likes of Arif Mardin or Charles Stepney – while also keeping things fresh and contemporary, partly thanks to a range of singers who include the group's frequent partner Kylie Auldist, plus Dan Sultan, Washington, and Tim Rogers. Ross Irwin arranged the whole thing – and is clearly a key force in the group's sound here – and titles are a mix of covers and remakes of older Bamboos classics – titles that include "The Truth", "Keep Me In Mind", "I Got Burned", "I Don't Wanna Stop", "Stranded", "Strong", and "Eliza".

Budos BandBudos Band ... LP
Daptone, 2005. New Copy ... $13.99
A brilliant mix of Afro and deep funk styles – the kind of grooves you'd get if Fela Kuti hung out with The Meters in the late 60s! Budos Band recall the genius of 90s deep funk combo The Daktaris – and have a similar love of older African rhythms touched by a newer indie funk sound – a complexity in the group's well-arranged horn parts, but a simplicity to their rhythms that makes the album cook like some of our favorite classics from years back. Sax and trumpet lines are mixed nicely with heavy percussion and a fair bit of organ at the bottom – creating a murky groove that has a bit of New Orleans in the mix, but also has most of the instruments stepping along with the rhythm – in a very cool take on the Africa 70 sound. Tracks are all instrumental, and all incredible – and the record's one of the freshest we've heard from the deep funk underground in years – a second-generation set that gets way past simple copycat funk and into its own unique groove! Titles include "Budos Theme", "Ghost Walk", "King Charles", "Eastbound", "Across The Atlantic", "Up From The South", "TIBWF", and "Monkey See Monkey Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsMiss Sharon Jones (Soundtrack) ... LP
Daptone, 2016. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Partly a soundtrack to the film on the life and music of the mighty Sharon Jones – partly a collection of some of her best tracks, with a bonus cut that's previously unreleased! The music here documents the amazing run of modern funk we've heard from Ms Jones & The Dap-Kings – a partnership that's given the 21st Century some incredible soul records – of the sort to rival 60s classics from labels like Stax or Atlantic Records! Yet the music here is also something else all its own – the story of struggle, survival, and rebirth – as Jones began her career with a hell of a strong sound, and has emerged with an even more powerful voice than ever – as you'll hear on cuts that include the never-issued "I'm Still Here" – plus "Slow Down Love", "I Learned The Hard Way", "Mama Don't Like My Man", "Let Them Knock", "Longer & Stronger", "If You Call", "People Don't Get What They Deserve", "Tell Me", "Retreat", "Humble Me", and "I'll Still Be True". Includes the vinyl-only bonus track "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" – recorded live at Brooklyn's Universal Church Of God. LP, Vinyl record album
