Story About You
Urban Discos (Japan), 2024. New Copy

Reconnection
Urban Discos (Japan), 2022. New Copy
CD...$8.99 26.99
There's a pile of vinyl on the cover of this album from Japanese trio Nautilus – and that's maybe a good way to get at the sound of their style – as the group work heavily from an old school mode, while still pushing things into some more contemporary rhythmic territory too! The ... CD

LP, Vinyl record album

Funkool Orchestra

Latin Freaks
Maledetta Discoteca (Italy), 2023. New Copy
These guys are definitely Latin Freaks – of the sort who like to mix heavy percussion with some clubbier instrumentation – all at a level that would make 70s salsa disco giants like Joe Bataan or Eddie Drennon mighty proud! This Italian group have a great way with the music, and have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Odd Funk (Netherlands), 2023. New Copy
Killer work from this funky Finnish combo – a group who celebrate a strong decade in music with this really wonderful set! The Blassics bring in all the right sort of influences from African funk of years back, especially Ethiopian music – and they spin out tracks that are often nice ... CD

Mike Bandoni

Lost Communication
Funk Night, 2020. New Copy
Mike Bandoni soars to space on waves of funky drums – spread out here on long tracks that are often three times the length of a funky 45, which allows plenty of room for the drums to do all sorts of sharp changes and crackling passages – as plenty of cool keyboards, electronics, and ...

Khruangbin get a great new sound here – thanks to the vocals and acoustic guitar of Leon Bridges, who bring a whole new dimension to their music!

Khruangbin & Leon Bridges

Texas Moon EP
Dead Oceans, 2022. New Copy
A really great follow-up to the first collaboration between Khruangbin and Leon Bridges – one with a title that's similar to the first, but a sound that's nicely different too!

Nautilus

Revival
Urban Discos (Japan), 2023. New Copy
CD...$8.99 29.99
The group's just a trio, but they've got a wonderfully full sound – a rich funky groove that comes from just drums, bass, and keyboards – yet which has this soaring reach that almost takes us back to the 70s genius of work on labels like Fantasy or Prestige! Drummer Toshiyuki Sasaki is ... CD
Avantgroidd, 2021/2024. New Copy
Wonderfully righteous work from Burnt Sugar Arkestra – a group who've been giving us great records for years, but who are maybe even more important to the scene than ever before!

An all-instrumentals set of tracks from the Jazz Is Dead duo of Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad – but one that also has some ties to their previous projects as well!

Bella Brown & The Jealous Lovers

Soul Clap
LRK (UK), 2024. New Copy
A set that's got all the classic soul vibe you might guess from the title and the cover, but one that's also got some more contemporary elements too – as Bella Brown and the group weave together strands of soulful influences from many decades – all with the feeling as if a 60s act on ...

Colemine, 2024. New Copy Gatefold
A contemporary group, but one who bring out a classic Cali soul vibe – particularly that sound that played very well in East LA back in the day – when mellow sweet soul was the biggest thing on the scene!

The Great Revivers are especially great here – really building off the sort of energy we love on their funky 45s, as they serve up great goods over the course of this full length album! There's a slight psychedelic edge to the music – not as tripped-out as a Malcolm Catto production ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rickey Calloway

King Of Funk
Rickey Calloway/Funk Night, 2023. New Copy
Amazing work from Rickey Calloway – an overlooked soul singer with a resume that goes back to the 70s, and one who's definitely kept the spirit of James Brown alive and well with music like this! In a world of young singers trying for a classic vibe, Rickey's the real deal – and served ... LP, Vinyl record album
Record Kicks (Italy), 2024. New Copy
The Tibbs serve up a very classic style of soul – as you might guess from the retro image on the cover – very 60s-oriented, with hard-driving rhythms from the group's well-crafted lineup, all topped with mighty dynamic vocals from lead singer Roxanne! And sure, this isn't new territory ... CD

Jonny Benavidez with Cold Diamond & Mink

My Echo, Shadow, & Me
Timmion (Finland), 2023. New Copy

LP, Vinyl record album
Dead Oceans, 2023. New Copy 2LP
A massive live album from this funky trio – a double-length set, and one that they get all to themselves after splitting a long run of live records with other artists during most of 2023! While we liked those records, we're very happy to have Khruangbin on their own – stretching out in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Khruangbin & Men I Trust

Live At RBC Echo Beach
Dead Oceans, 2023. New Copy
A mighty pairing of talents – indie legends Men I Trust and funk monsters Khruangbin – united here on one record, recorded on a very strong tour date from 2022! All material was recorded at RBC Echo Beach – with Men I Trust on side one, Khruangbin on side two – sadly not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Khruangbin

Live At Stubb's
Dead Oceans, 2023. New Copy
A set that's partly an album by massive funk trio Khruangbin, and partly a tribute to some of the musicians they worked with on a recent tour – as side one has the other performers in the lead, while Khruangbin gets plenty of instrumental space on the flipside! The group themselves turn in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dead Oceans, 2019. New Copy
A trippier version of Khruangbin than we're used to – but that's maybe no surprise, given that the whole album's a dub version of the Con Todo El Mundo record – with all the best funky currents of that sweet set, and some wilder modes as well! Drums and bass really get a great workout ... LP, Vinyl record album

Colemine/Dead Oceans, 2018. New Copy
Man, these guys just keep on getting better – and this time around, Durand Jones & The Indications deliver a record that's way more than just another funk band with a lead singer!

Karma Chief/Colemine, 2022. New Copy Gatefold
A new kind of love, and a new kind of groove from Ghost Funk Orchestra – one that's deeper than ever before, even though the group is really just the efforts of producer/instrumentalist Seth Applebaum!

Nautilus

Story About You
Urban Discos (Japan), 2024. New Copy
Nautilus sound every bit as great here as on previous albums, but they've also added a difference too – the use of vocals on many tracks, in a way that really helps expand and open up their sound!

Doug Carn – Jazz Is Dead 5 (2LP 45rpm pressing)
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy 2LP

The set's maybe got a more pronounced influence from Adrian Younge and Ali ... LP, Vinyl record album
Miraaz (Estonia), 2023. New Copy
The music of Misha Panfilov just gets deeper and deeper with each new release – and here, he's light years away from the funk of his earlier sets, and much more in the realm of spiritual jazz!

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Henry Franklin

Jazz Is Dead 14 – Henry Franklin
Jazz Is Dead, 2022. New Copy
A record with maybe the sharpest edge of any of the titles in this excellent series – a set that's certainly more jazz-based than most, thanks in part to the presence of the legendary Henry Franklin on bass, and some superb work on guitar from the great Jeff Parker! Although Franklin is best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Katalyst

Jazz Is Dead 13 – Katalyst
Jazz Is Dead, 2022. New Copy
The jazz component of this wonderful series just seems to get deeper and deeper with each new release – despite what you might think from the title – and this time around, the presence of LA collective Katalyst really knocks things out of the park!

Budos Band

Frontier's Edge
Diamond West, 2023. New Copy
That's a real Roger Dean-styled image on the cover, which maybe heralds the sound that's going on here for the Budos Band – an approach that's even heavier than before, with maybe stronger guitar and bass at times – yet a vibe that still bristles with the group's great use of percussion ... LP, Vinyl record album

JJ Whitefield

Puzzled
Broc (France), 2023. New Copy
