Ramon Norwood (Radius)Improvisational Aesthetics in Black & White ... Book
Blurb/Etc, 2018. New Copy ... $25.99
A beautiful little DIY black & white photography book by Ramon Norwood, aka Radius Etc, the multi-talented Chicago abstract hip hop producer, beatmaker and artist! We don't fancy ourselves art critics here at Dusty Groove, but we know Radius's sound, and for us it's pretty nice to see how his straight-forward snapshots of the world through his eyes translate into his hazy beautiful beats and production – but this is all visual and it's a wonderful view whether you've heard him, or are only seeing his photos – of a lovely old building through a tagged doorframe, a cloudy distant Chicago skyline, lonely souls on a commuter train, stacks of records calling you from another room and lots of other stark but storied shots. It's a slim book you can flip through a little too fast – just 56 paperback pages – but we keep coming back to it! Book

Todd StadtmanFunky Bollywood – The Wild World Of 1970s Indian Action Cinema ... Book
Fab (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 24.95
The sounds of Bollywood are nothing new to the racks at Dusty Groove – but this may be the first book we've ever seen that does a good job of opening up the actual films for the laymen like us! The book's a non-academic, visually-stunning look at the fantastic Indian film culture of the 70s – still filled with plenty of text and information on the movies, but also laid out in a way that's nicely down to earth – a great balance between some of the more academic Bollywood books on the market, and others that usually just feature images from the films or posters, but not as much information. The book's billed as "a selective guide" – and runs through entries for dozens of movies, and also offers up small features on stars of Indian cinema, important directors, and even the key musical talents who made the movies so great. 225 pages, softcover, in full color.
