Rugged NuggetsRugged Walk/Take Me With You ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2019. New Copy ... $5.99
Guitar, bass, and drums all really seem to love each other to death at the start of "Rugged Walk" – coming on with a unified groove that's peppered with horns in just the right way – while the guitar kind of wangles a bit of a solo next to a trumpet, and the whole thing ...

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!

Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $8.99
Cold Diamond & Mink provide some killer slow funk backing here – so much so that the tune's already got this great moody vibe before Emilia Sisco comes in with the lyrics – which have a heartbreaking vibe, and work with the funky backings almost like a classic tune by Ann Peebles ...

One of the best new funk albums we've heard in years – and one that really does an amazing job of putting equal emphasis on intrumentation and deep soul vocals!

A contemporary cut, but one that's got a great early 70s sweet soul vibe – as Carlton June delivers this fantastic heartbreaking lyric, while the Cold Diamond & Mink combo give him a slow funk drumbreak backup!
