Peg/Dream Wave
Austin Boogie Crew, 2015. New Copy
A mighty cool take on the Steely Dan classic "Peg" – one served up in a very keyboard-heavy backing that feels a bit like the original at the start, but then sounds very different once Brian Ellis comes in to sing the lyrics – given that all the vocals are run through a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Straight Fire/Thumpin'
Colemine, 2009. New Copy
Lots of fast, funky organ riffing on "Straight Fire" – a cooking little cut that has lots of bass romping around in the rhythms – and a mighty lean groove that definitely stays the course throughout! "Thumpin" is another great instrumental too – with the drums ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Like Yesterday/Freedom
Colemine, 2011. New Copy
Heavy funk from our friends at Colemine – great stuff from Cali combo Monophonics plus a different, but just as great psych funk styled cut by Destruments! "Like Yesterday" is solid as can be, a hard-hitting number with walloping drums, punchy horns, and powerhouse vocals – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Reggie/Duck's Dirge
Colemine, 2014. New Copy
The Jive Turkeys do "The Reggie" here – a quick-stepping groove that mixes these sweet skittish drums with a bold horn section, tight guitar, and some mighty nice Hammond! The tune bumps along quickly and only gains energy towards the end – a flurry of instrumental power with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Colemine, 2013. New Copy
Hard-driving, sweaty and dexterously played organ funk from The Grease Traps – a nice and heavy single on the reliable funk merchants at Colemine Records! "Street Sweeper" brings the heat from the get-go – with sweeping drums, killer bassline and most especially the organ. It' ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Yo Todo Tu Yo/Tsunami
Colemine, 2012. New Copy
A cool little groove from this mysterious funky combo! "Yo Todo Tu Yo" has a slight Latin vibe – as you might expect from the title – but is also this hip midtempo funk number done with snapping drums and watery keyboards – kind shimmering next to the tight breaks, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colemine, 2012. New Copy
"High Noon" has a mighty great sound – a burst of majestic horns at the start, offset by offbeat organ – then a dubby stepping groove that's filled with sweet vibes under the horns – a wicked blend that's funky, almost Ethiopian, but has a Jamaican touch as well! "A ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colemine, 2013. New Copy
A wicked slow funk number from Fat Night – haunting, moody, and very very compelling! There's a slightly trippy feel to the track – maybe from the heavy echo used on the vocals – but the core groove of stepping guitar and drums almost takes us back to the best mellow harmony cuts ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Firewalker/Chapula
Colemine, 2012. New Copy
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Daptone, 2015. New Copy
A great remake of this classic soul song – a tune made famous by Etta Jones and a number of others – given a great dubby approach here by the Frightnrs! The bassline's in the lead of the instrumentation, and mostly just gets support from the vocals and some very slow-stepping drums ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ear To Chicago, 2013. New Copy
Soulful instrumental beatcraft from Radius! featuring the Roy Ayers tribute "Say Goodbyyye (Sweet Tears Dub" and the spacey keys textured, beat-heavy "Rockers". "Rockers" is on the A-side, delivering the aforementioned sounds, but it also features some subtly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rhino, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 25 x 7 inch
One of the funkiest box sets we've ever seen – and amazingly issued by an American major label! The package is a treasure trove of funky work from a decade of Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, and related labels – tunes pulled both from mainstream releases and much more obscure 45s! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The title's a reference to a once-famous ad campaign, but the groove is pure funky soul all the way through – from the sweet break that starts the single, to the soaring lead vocals that really make the whole thing wonderful! The tune may well be one of the best 45s we've ever heard reissued ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I Can Remember/Standing On The Outside
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The bump here is a gentle one – a cool slow funk start to a track that turns out to be just the kind of mellow harmony number we love so much! The flipside's equally great – and both cuts have a feel that reminds us of those east coast groups who could be hard and sweet at the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colemine, 2015. New Copy
Niki Crawford takes the lead on vocals this time around – bringing a deep female soul sound to Orgone, in a mighty nice way! "Strike" has an instrumental punch that supports her vocals – tight drums and plenty of heavy horns – and the single's backed by "New ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Wait For Me/Just Fun
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy
The Brown Bombers come on here with plenty of firepower – soaring with the groove on "Wait For Me" – which has an upbeat Northern soul groove and some great harmonies to match! "Just Fun" follows in a similar spirit – an instrumental groove that echoes the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Alexis, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Sweet grooves from a group who definitely live up to their name – an obscure Bay Area combo from the 70s, who sound mighty sharp and tight on "Get Away"! The rhythms and riffs tumble out at triple-speed as the group unfurl their jazzy style – and the flipside has a mighty ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colemine, 2014. New Copy
Debut single by Leroi Conroy – a producer on a number of singles on indie funk Colemine stable – getting an assist from members of Jive Turkeys, Jungle Fire, and The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble! "Remember When" is gritty little number instrumental that feels like a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Secret Stash, 2014. New Copy
A contemporary gem from 60s & 70s Twin Cities veterans The Valdons – sounding like their prime, vintage selves on a contemporary ecording of "Just How Much Can One Man Stand" – which you can hear for yourself, as an early 70s demo of the same great song appears on the flip! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
