Something About April II

CD (Item 801452) Linear Labs, 2016 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

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 works as some sort of faux 70s soul album – but of the funky, deep-grooved sort – more badass soundtrack, with some heavy blacksploitation elements in the music – which Younge crafts from strings, beats, and a range of other great instrumentation that includes Hammond, electric piano, vibes, and even a bit of sitar! Yet the grooves here are also more expansive – surprisingly tuneful at times, especially on some of the numbers which feature surprising guest work from Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab – whose vocals appear on the album alongside some of the more soul-styled leads from Loren Oden. The whole thing's great – as heavy and funky as anything Adrian Younge's ever done, but better too – and titles include "Winter Is Here", "Sea Motet", "Sittin By The Radio", "Memories Of War", "Hands Of God", "Ready To Love", and "Magic Music".  © 1996-2020, 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.
