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 ... $8.99 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.

✨✧ Tim BurgessTim Book Two – Vinyl Adventures From Istanbul To San Francisco ... Book
Faber & Faber, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Here's the kind of travel book we can really get behind – the story of a guy out looking for records – hitting some of the coolest vinyl shops around the globe, and learning a heck of a lot about music in the process! Tim Burgess is best known as a member of The Charlatans – but he's also one heck of a record collector – and his story here tells the tale of albums he discovers, and albums that he's recommended – by a host of compelling figures who include Paul Weller, Ian McCulloch, Irmin Schmidt, Boy George, Andrew Weatherall, Chris Carter, Johnny Marr, and many other musical contemporaries who mention certain releases to Tim, then set him on the track of discovery. Along the way, he stops at some of the greatest record stores in the world – including Dusty Groove (!) – and the book is a beautiful portrait of the way we learn about music and keep on pushing our boundaries. 257 pages, softcover.
