Free Nelson Mandoomjazz
The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus

You’ll be pleased to hear that The Shape Of Doomjazz To Come + Saxophone Giganticus by Free Nelson Mandoomjazz sounds pretty much as you’d expect ‘doomjazz’ to. Relatively traditional jazz passages (but with heavy bass) lurch into grinding metal with wild saxophone over the top. I also applaud the group for seemingly interrupting their own band name.

Talmud Beach
Talmud Beach

Talmud Beach a bearded three-piece from Helsinki, Finland but their sound recalls the relaxed blues of JJ Cale and Canned Heat with elements of Krautrock and Suicide. Talmud Beach are so laid back they are horizontal and the music matches their demeanor. Talmud Beach is available on vinyl LP and CD.

James Plotkin & Paal Nilssen-Love
Death Rattle

Paal Nilssen-Love, with his impossible drumming powers, joins intense guitarist James Plotkin on this Run Grammofon release. Death Rattle is anything but, with both improvisers firing on all cylinders. Plotkin often takes the lead, his beefed-up guitar pushing through the centre as Nilssen-Love’s drums explode all around him.

Incredible Bongo Band
The Return Of The Incredible Bongo Band

The Return Of The Incredible Bongo Band by The Incredible Bongo Band is the follow-up their 1973 classic, Bongo Rock. Bongo Rock was plundered by rappers and producers for samples helping to build the foundation of hip-hop and many other facets of popular music. The Return Of The Incredible Bongo Band has also had it’s best bits harvested by the likes of Bentley Rhythm Ace, Fatboy Slim and Macy Gray. This percussion-heavy groove ride features the skin-smacking talents of Jim Gordon and the perfect percussive prowess of King Errisson.

Robbie Hill's Family Affair
Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions

Originally recorded in Los Angeles in January 1975, these five tracks were all but lost in the ether. Light In The Attic continues the fine tradition for essential reissues with the Seattle soul of Robbie Hill’s Family Affair. It’s sweet, funky and beautifully mixed to show the band at their best. Out on vinyl LP limited to 2000 numbered copies.

The Bang Girl Group Revue
Soul Shangri-La

Inspired by the old days of heart-wrenching and life-affirming soul music -- back when it was the much idolized '60s -- The Bang Girl Group Revue take retro and reroute it for the current day. The trio try and keep their sound on Soul Shangri-La as true to their vision as possible, doing soul re-enactment with their vocals all performed around shared mics to make the harmonies near inseparable. A pretty reliable time machine of sonics, this one.

Super Adventure Club
Straight From The Dick


Land Of Kush
The Big Mango

Osama Shalabi's project Land of Kush is where esoteric sounds congregate: his mix of free whatever-you-want (as long as its improvised) is met with vocal howls and hums, strangely programmed electronic work in one big sonic ambiguation. The Big Mango uses this lens of odd sounds to consider gendered oppression in his own society, considering misogynistic violence and suppression.

Mississippi Sheiks
Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order Vol 3

Jack White clearly has a fondness for completism: here his Third Man label have embarked on a mission to reissue the Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order of profoundly influential (not least to Mr White himself) blues group Mississippi Sheiks. Volume 3 covers recordings made between October 1931 and July 1932.

Thundercat
Apocalypse

LA vibe king Thundercat followed his debut the Golden Age of Apocalypse by picking out one word from that title and coming up with his best record to date. Apocalypse is a gorgeous run through his repertoire of funk, soul, hip-hop and '70s yacht rock. An inventive and enthralling ride and the soundtrack to any summer.

The Sandman's Orchestra
Nocturne

Pierre Laplace was the singer in a cool French band called Vera Clouzot. Between 1994 and 2004 they played alongside the likes of Smog and Jeff Buckley, before disbanding. Laplace then holed himself up in a home studio and taught himself to play loads of different instruments until, in May 2010, he discovered an extraordinary singing voice emanating from his 15-year-old niece Leonie Gabriel. A duo was born. This self-released CD could appeal to fans of Bill Callahan, Cat Power and Kate Bush.

Shiggajon
Dansen

Fans of free folk will no doubt rejoice at the release of Damsen by Shiggajon, a Danish two piece made up of Nikolai Brix Vartenberg and Mikkel Reher-Langberg as well as a liquid cast of backing players. The clash of sounds as they bring together noise, drone and free jazz grows discordant and beautiful. Limited LP in screen printed sleeve.

Kelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
Kelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

For his latest trick the living legend Kelan Philip Cohran has got together a record for Honest Jon’s that features a band made up his eight children. The liquor-soaked Mardi Gras sound of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble proves to be a perfect foil for Cohran’s trumpet playing. Cohran suffuses his horn work with his life history here, from his early years in the golden age of swing to his time with the Sun Ra Arkestra.

Michael Kiwanuka
I'll Get Along

Michael Kiwanuka is the sort of honey-piped soulster that you could take home to meet your mum. The Londoner’s lush voice and butter-wouldn’t-melt demeanour has garnered him plenty of fans - he’s the Sound of 2012, don’t you know. As his debut LP Home Again continues to shift units we now get new single and album highlight ‘I’ll Get Along’, which comes backed here by new tune ‘I Don’t Know’.

Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn
Something About April

Why not sit down and play the sample-spotting game with Adrian Younge’s album Something About April? You might recognise catchy fragments used elsewhere by Jay-Z, 50 Cent or DJ Premier, a fact that indicates the kind of psychedelic swinging soul that Younge produces. This is the deluxe, limited LP reissue of the album, on Linear Labs.

Skull Snaps
Skull Snaps

Despite what the cover may lead you to believe, Skull Snaps were a soul/funk act. The band were an enigma, no one knew who they were and this self-titled LP was their only one. What you’d probably like to know is that it contains the track It’s A New Day, the drum intro of which has been sampled by DJ Shadow, Digable Planets and Eric B & Rakim, among others. That makes it a fairly essential purchase, doesn't it? Reissue LP and CD on Mr. Bongo with sleeve notes by Anton Spice.

Miles Davis
Sketches of Spain

Initially, Miles Davis was just going to record a version of Spanish composer and vituoso pianist, Joaquin Rodrigo’s classical guitar piece Concerto De Aranjuez after composer, arranger and regular collaborator, Gil Evans had transposed the music from the only known recording. However, this got Davis and Evans’ interested in more Spanish music and they began researching the country’s folk and dance music for what would become Sketches Of Spain. The album was recorded between 1959-60 and is regarded as one of his many classics.

Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics
(OST)

Lloyd Miller teaming up with The Heliocentrics, eh? Wonder what that’s going to sound like. Oh wait … yep, exactly like that. (OST) finds the hip young jazzers breathing new life into Miller’s East-gazing style. The group’s Sun Ra-indebted modalism proves a good foil for the Middle Eastern/Arabian explorations of Miller. Out via Strut.

Funkadelic
One Nation Under A Groove

Originally issued in 1978 'One Nation Under a Groove' is a reissue of one of the defining albums of the funk movement. Put together by mothership mastermind George Clinton, Funkadelic absorbed all the best elements of seventies psychedelia, rock and funk spawning a P-Funk empire of cartoon-inspired imagery, futuristic space travel and sonic adventure.

Havard Volden & Toshimaru Nakamura
Crepuscular Rays

Duo between Havard Volden’s contact mic-ed acoustic guitar and Toshimaru Nakamura’s no-input mixing board, on Another Timbre. Nakamura is of course an absolute maestro with his ghostly electrical currents, and Volden is no slouch: what is fascinating is that the two instruments, enormously different as they are, are sometimes indistinguishable.
  • Genre(s):
  • Funk / Jazz / Blues / Soul / Gospel

Lucio Capece & Lee Patterson
Empty Matter

Two masters of tiny sounds meet up on this Another Timbre release. Lucio Capece predominantly plays soprano saxophone or bass clarinet, which he approaches more as tubes for breath than as traditional ‘instruments’. Lee Patterson uses all sorts of sound processes: on one track here, he amplifies the sound of burning hazelnuts. Absolutely beautiful music.

Parliament
Up For The Down Stroke

Jaga Jazzist
One-Armed Bandit

Norwegian mega-band Jaga Jazzist have signed to Ninja Tune in order to release new LP One-Armed Bandit. A nine- or ten-piece group depending on which way the wind’s blowing, Jaga Jazzist create a sort of updated version of golden-age Library funk on this record. This means that the ‘70s fusion inflections are adorned with influences from Nordic Disco, Icelandic electronica and post-rock on cuts like 'Endless Galaxy'. Think Polar Bear and GoGo Penguin.

Polar Bear
Peepers

Peepers by Polar Bear was originally released in 2010. It’s an album that has something for everyone. Percussionist and bandleader, Sebastian Roachford, takes jazz and mixes elements of rock, folk, soul and electronic in an unusual yet highly engaging fashion. It was the best selling album on The Leaf Label.
