Bumps

CD (Item 554152) Stones Throw, 2007 — Condition: Used
$1.99 ...

CD

Breaks, beats and funky drums from Bumps – aka Dan Bitney, John Herndon and John McEntire of Tortoise – a mightily thumping set that sounds very little like their much vaunted flagship operation – serving up raw, funky beatcraft all the way through! Tortoise has always worked with bottom heavy grooving elements, beyond the experimentalism, and have never really gotten enough credit for that aspect of their sound. Bumps really lets them roll with it! Nothing but beats here – drawing from a diverse wellspring of funk, avant garde jazz and dubby influences! Titles include "A Safe Balm, "Biotic Discussion", "As Bond Did", "Crass Jenny", "Deal, Tree", "Hello, Leo", "Can You See", "A Dumb Month", "Exponent Memoir", "Nashira", "Fun Injury", "Intermission Pt 1", "Intermission Pt 2", "Don't Cry, My Son", "Swingland Hit" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. Used
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD

James Taylor Quartet

Penthouse Suite
Acid Jazz (UK), 1999. Used
There's kind of a dodgy cover on this one that might make you think the set's the lowest ebb of James' 90s career, but the record's actually a pretty decent live set – recorded in 1999, with tracks that mostly hearken back to the jazzed up glory of the early days. James wails on Hammond on a ... CD

Piano Overlord (Prefuse 73)

Singles Collection 03 to 05
