✨✧ ChandeliersThrush ... LP
Obey Your Brain, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Avant rock and electronics from Chicago's Chandeliers – blending a world of influences into a unique vibe all their own! The sounds are playful without being cute and innovative without getting all cerebral on you – a balance that pushes the group above and beyond many of their peers. A mix of live and electronic instrumentation, with nods to the Krautrock forbears, avant dancefloor sounds from the 80s to today and global psychedelia of many kinds. Titles include "Mr Electric", "Maldonado", "Mango Tree", "The Thrush", "Big League", "Gold Rush", "Bamboo", "Graffiti" and "Body Double (UK Mix)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousStone Soul – San Francisco's Loadstone Label ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Bay Area scene has always had a very unique approach to music – famous in rock, where classics of psych still stand strong – and important in jazz, hillbilly, and just about every other style too! Yet when it comes to soul, there's always something especially nice about the San Francisco approach – a way of creating something fresh and unusual, but without ever overstating itself too much – music that seems to owe very little to both the east coast, and Detroit – and which doesn't even follow some of the patterns down in LA! Case in point is the excellent work on this set – a sweet blend of obscure 60s soul singles and mid 70s funk groovers – pulled together in a wonderful examination of the overlooked Loadstone label. The work is totally wonderful – the soul cuts have a quality that really beats so many rare soul collections that maybe sometimes dig too deep – and the funkier 70s cuts open up with lots of currents from jazz and a bit of club, sometimes in modes that echo the sound of the Fantasy Records style of the period, but with a bit more of an indie vibe overall. As usual with Kent Records, the presentation is great – detailed notes, great sound, and 24 massive tracks that include "A Frown On My Face" by Jacqueline Jones, "A Pretty Girl Dressed In Brown" by Eugene Jefferson, "Fading Day" by The Chandeliers, "A Funky Driver On A Funky Bus (part 1)" by Charles Leonard, "Rudy Blue" by Jean Knight, "Indication" by Eddie & Ernie, "Love Bandit (voc)" by Lee Rogers, "Headed For The Streets" by Herman Harper, "You Touched The Inner Part Of Me" by Celeste Hardie, "Just Say A Four Letter Word" by The California Playboys, "Get To Stepping" by The Cals, and "Swimming Partners" by Paula Lamont.
