Earthrising
Favorite (France), 2016. New Copy
A great project from Bjorn Wagner – a contemporary clubby talent who's becoming as enigmatic as Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in the way that he can handle so many different styles! This album almost feels like some lost bit of Miami funk from the end of the 70s – the kind of TK ... LP, Vinyl record album

Girl In The Glass Case
Damaged Goods, 2016. New Copy
Mod sounds from Senior Service – a sweet set of 60s-styled instrumentals that definitely live up to the retro look of the cover – in a space between spy soundtracks, London beat styles, and the production work of Joe Meek! The combo features stunning Hammond from Jonathan P Barker, who ... CD

Can't Stand The Pressure (4 LP set)
Now Again, 2010s. New Copy 4LP
4LP version of the Can't Stand The Pressure compilation – collecting the original 4 separate Tamanrasset, Ngugna Yeti Fofa, Coomassi and Ka Rica Tar EPs – together for the first time! The vibe here is great – that Karl Hector & The Malcouns mix of deep funk instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounding Out The City
Truth & Soul/Big Crown, 2005. New Copy
Easily one of the greatest new funk records of the 21st Century – and a set that goes way beyond some of the cliches that are currently gripping others in the deep funk underground! El Michels Affair have a cool, easygoing style to their music – one that's as much 70s jazz as it is 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moog Maximus
Blow Up (UK), 2016. New Copy
All hail Moog Maximus – that mighty instrument that first got going back in the 60s, handled here by Nasser Bouzida, aka Bongolian – in a mad mix of funky instrumentals! The moog's not the only thing going on here, as Bongolian brings in lots of other groovy elements too – a bit ... CD

Buried Treasure (France), 2016. New Copy
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, ...

Something About April II
Linear Labs, 2016. New Copy Gatefold
A record that hardly needs to be called a "part 2" – because this sweet little set knocks it out of the park even more than the first project issued under this title – all as a mighty tribute to the evolving studio genius of Adrian Younge! Like the first record, this one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Unstraight Ahead (with download)
Now Again, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns! Karl Hector & The Malcouns are the same loose collective of players you'll know ... LP, Vinyl record album

B Crack (Netherlands), 2016. New Copy
A Dutch combo with some mighty tight horns – trumpet, tenor, and baritone sax – all forged together in a strongly soulful frontline! The undercurrent of the group's groove has a bit of fuzzy guitar right on the rhythms – almost in an early Baker Brothers way – but the ... CD

Durand Jones & The Indications
Colemine, 2016. New Copy
Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years – new work by a singer who hails from Indiana, but who's able to give the best from Memphis and Muscle Shoals a real run for their money! Durand Jones isn't one of these cats who's trying to fake it with a few retro touches – ... CD

Broadway (includes download)
Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
The incredible full length debut of Myron & E – a duo we've been digging for years on Finnish funky 45s – but who sound even more amazing here on an album of their own! The pair have this really old school approach to soul music – the kind of harmonies we love in vintage New ... LP, Vinyl record album

Movie Soundtrack Experience
Irma (Italy), 2016. New Copy
The duo of Christian Capiozzo and Mecco Guidi gave us a really great record their first time around – and this time they're joined by guitarist Daniele Santimone, who helps them keep things very much in the mod instrumental mode of their debut! Despite the title of the album, the songs aren't ... CD

Funk Night, 2015. New Copy
We'd love to have a drink with The Great Revivers – as it would finally give us a chance to tell them how much we really love their music! This strong full length debut from the Russian funk combo really pushes past their initial wave of singles – showing the group to not only be as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy
Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are ... LP, Vinyl record album

1000 Watts
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy
A dubbier set than even before from Quantic and his Flowering Inferno project – a record that's still quite heavy on the range of Caribbean elements he blended with funk on the previous two albums, but one that also seems to draw a bit more strongly from the sound of Kingston overall! The ... CD

Inland Emperor
MRI, 2013. New Copy
Damn great work from the Greyboy Allstars – a record that's deeper, hipper, and more rewarding than we ever remember from the group – a rich blend of jazz and funk, without any tricks or gimmicks at all! The playing of the members has really deepened a lot since the last album – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heartaches By The Number
Omnivore, 2016. New Copy
The Bo-Keys have been a rock-solid force on the Memphis scene for a number of years – and here, they take an even deeper step into the city's rich soul history – by making space on the record for performances by classic Memphis soul singers Percy Wiggins, Don Bryant, and The ... CD
