HamaHoumeissa ... CD
Sahel Sounds, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the coolest records we've heard on the Sahel Sound label to date – not the usual guitar material you might know from the imprint, but instead a batch of very cosmic keyboards – all instrumental, and spinning out into space with a vibe that's almost a collision between the best ... read more CD

Delmark, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Quite an unusual album from guitarist Fareed Haque – very different than some of his more jazz-based work over the years, as the set features Haque working with a string quartet, on a host of more compositional pieces!

Ostinato (UK), 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 21.98
Really beautiful sounds from Abu Obaida Hassan – material that was mostly recorded in the 70s, but often has a much more ancient vibe – thanks to the striking sounds that Hassan produces on the tambour, which is an instrument that features a drum-like bass, and almost an explosive array ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lorem Ipsum (France), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A set that's maybe a bit different than other Nigerian grooves you might know from the early 80s – as Hycento Junior has a strong influence from American hip hop, and also a bit of reggae as well!

Lion, 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A heady set from mid 70s South Korea – the debut album from a mighty edgey little trio! The album's not nearly as psych as some of the other Korean efforts from the period – as the group's got a tight groove on most numbers, with a definite funk influence on the drums and bass – ... read more CD

Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $22.99
A really fresh group with a very unique sound – a combo that's partly rooted in older Afro Funk modes, but who also deliver their groove with kind of a leaner, New York street soul vibe as well! The album's cover image really gets the groove right – as the vintage is more 70s through ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Heady Afro Funk from Ikebe Shakedown – a tight little tune that sums up everything the group does so well – with sharp riffing guitar in the rhythms, lots of lively percussion, and horn parts that really flesh out the mood!

One of the most roosty albums on Blue Note – and a fairly straight session of African percussion tracks by Solomon Ilori and his Afro Drum Ensemble!

EMI/Outernational (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album that's every bit as cool as you might expect – a set that's very much in the same Indo-jazz experiments as saxophonist Joe Harriott, but with a slightly different approach overall! Although sitar is part of the instrumentation, there's also a fair bit of conventional jazz phrasing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
