Sun Ra & His Solar Arkestra
The Magic City

Fully restored and then some, this pressing of Sun Ra's behemoth Magic City goes long on its history via free jazz aficionado Ben Young.

Dinosaur
Together, As One

They may be this years token 'jazz/freeform' Mercury Music Prize contenders but Dinosaur are at least more interesting than the dull mainstream pap of the other nominees.

Sun Ra
Jazz By Sun Ra Vol. 1

The uninventive but extremely accurate title 'Jazz By Sun Ra' probably says more than this sentence ever could, but did we mention it's Volume 1? Sun Ra's first record may not be his absolute best but sees a great assemble of musicians (a personnel of about eleven) gather 'round.

Everything That Shines Ain't Gold

Positive Noise

Sam Obey A.K.A. Obey City reinvents himself as Sam O.B. and brings his debut full length album to the LuckyMe label. His twist of R’n’B soul and bassy club orientated hip-hop takes another step further into a glossy 80s synth land. Retaining the furious trap style snare and hat flurr...view item »

Dwight Sykes
On The Rocks

The record that Dwight Sykes should probably have released in the 1980’s is available to pick up on this nine-track record. On The Rocks is a pretty low-fi and easy listening affair that contains elements on 80’s soul and jazz, but with a rough and ready finish of a not-so-overproduced album. Available on Vi...view item »

John Coltrane
Coltrane Plays The Blues (Mono)

John Coltrane captured in a bluesy mood on this old Atlantic Records release. Rhino are generously reissuing Coltrane Plays The Blues 50 years after it came out, and you’ll be glad they did.

(Fake) The Facts

The relentlessly tuneless experimentalism of this week's review pile is getting me down so I'm dipping into this new LP from Spidergawd for a little respite. These guys have two members of Motorpsycho among their ranks but none of that band's sophistication - this is straight-down-the-line '70s riff rock which...view item »

Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins
The Lighthouse

Musically this album is not composed of a series of stand-alone songs that are linked together conceptually.

The mix is not only ferociously funky on the highest level (with the eyes never taken off of the rhythm and bass line) but the melod...view item »
