Fadoul
Al Zman Saib

Furiously energetic Arabic funk-rock music that leaps out of the speakers. Fadoul’s music has been little noticed in the non-Arabic world over the years, which is frankly a tragedy when you hear the quality of the material Al Zman Saib. Thankfully, Habibi Funk are reissuing, in an archival package with rare photos...view item »

Fire
She Sleeps, She Sleeps

Hell of a collab, this one: experimentalist Mats Gustafsson has played sax 'n' reeds as part of The Thing and with Phil Minton, and here joins post-rock minimalist Johan Berthling (fresh from a record with Oren Ambarchi) and Andreas Werlin of the percussive dance crew Wi...view item »

Fire! Orchestra
Ritual

Fire! Orchestra are of course the mutated super-version of the mighty Fire! trio, adding up to 21 members on this record.

Paul & The Tall Trees
Our Love In The Light

Paul and the Tall Trees are Paul Schalda and pals (including perhaps uniquely his dad and his brother). This family set up leads to some pretty warm hearted acoustic pop. Paul's belchy vocals recall Buddy Holly but his heart on sleeve lyrics are matched with jerky song structures that could come from the pen of ...view item »

94 East feat. Prince
94 East feat. Prince

Bushman's Revenge
Jazz, Fritt Etter Hukommelsen

Bushman’s Revenge are a jazz band who have often looked like a rock band, but Jazz, Fritt Etter Hukommelsen has them moving back towards the roots of the music they love: there are versions of pieces by Albert Ayler and McCoy Tyner here. Although some fairly gnarly electric blues ...view item »

Lee Moses
Time and Place

Long-time soul session musician Lee Moses (he played with Gladys Knight and Jimi Hendrix!) made his debut as a frontman and bandleader in 1971 on Time and Place. It wasn’t a hit, but it is a classic: Moses is light enough on his feet to get that lithe groove going...view item »

94 East feat. Prince
Just Another Sucker

Tee Mac featuring Marjorie Barnes
Night Illusion

Originally released in 1980, 'Night Illusion' is an Afro soul classic that's ventured deeper into obscurity over the years, and still remains relatively unknown outside of Nigeria.

Shafiq Husayn
On Our Way Home (feat. Fatima & Jimetta Rose)

NIGERIA SOUL FEVER - Afro Funk, Disco And Boogie: West African Disco Mayhem!

The weight of fantastic 1970’s Nigerian music being discovered in recent years by non-Nigerians (much of this music was never exported at all) has grown so great that authoritative compilers Soul Jazz have had to step in with this hefty set. Nigeria Soul Fever - Afro Funk, Disco And Boogie: West African Disco Mayhem!...view item »

Running The Voodoo Down - Explorations In Psychrockfunksouljazz 1967-80

The period 1967 to 1980 was a vivid one if you were in the States and paying attention to the music collected on this double release.

Charles Mingus
Blues & Roots

This is one of the all-time great Mingus albums, recorded around the same time as the better-known Mingus Ah Um. There's enough of a similarity between them that fans of one will almost certainly like the other, but they each have a different focus. Ah Um is a great introduction to Mingus's scope as a composer; Blues & Roots is more narrow, ...view item »

Seasick Steve
I Started Out With Nothin'

Steve introduces some songs with humorous asides and the last track finishes up with a tale from Steve's life living on the road. His music is as infectious as his story telling and once you hear one album I can guarantee you'll be searching out the others. Great, foot tapping, slide blues to get you smiling and singing along with. I love "Walki...view item »

Seasick Steve
Man From Another Time

The title "Man from Another Time" pretty much sums up the story Seasick Steve (a.k.a. Steve Wold), the vagabond guitarist and singer who has apparently been drifting across the globe as musical tumbleweed for some time yet his music is pretty much steeped in the blues with more than a healthy portion of roots or Americana for seasons. This colle...view item »

Parliament

Nick Waterhouse
Never Twice

Oh I know who this guy is. He's the recording genius that made recent records by the Allah Las and Ty Segall sound like they were covered in 60s dust. Now he's doing his own thing which is a cool but perhaps unfashionable blend of elegant 1950s r&b and club jazz, mixed with 1960s soul and boogaloo and taking...view item »

L.A. Salami
The City Nowadays

From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band: in fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician. Ahead of his forthcoming debut full-length album he releases The City Nowadays, a big statement of a single with confessional / political lyrics and large brass-powered ch...view item »

Seasick Steve
Dog House Music

Steve's raw and honest delivery is not the sound you'd expect to find being played at a nice club, but rather a dive bar alongside the swamp or busking on a dirty street. I wouldn't want it any other way. There are a few stories and humour in these songs but overall I was impressed by this joker’s serious songwriting, singing and playing. ...view item »

Seasick Steve & The Level Blues
Cheap

This is the very first album from everyone’s favourite (presumably-former?) hobo bluesman Seasick Steve, recorded in 2004 with a pair of Scandinavians (The Level Devils). Cheap sounds cheap, but it's also full of h...view item »

Johnnie Frierson
Have You Been Good To Yourself

Johnnie Frierson was in the 60’s Stax soul crew The Drapels and is brother to Wendy Rene, but his own personal music was not so much about making people dance as about making them pray. Have You Been Good To Yourself is a set of heartfelt intimate gospel songs, recorded at home an...view item »

Kneebody + Daedelus
Kneedelus

Prince and the Revolution
Around The World In A Day

Sarathy Korwar
Day to Day

Sarathy Korwar draws on the folk musics of his Indian routes, as well as the kind of jazzy electronics associated with Ninja Tune, who release his debut album in collaboration with The Steve Reid Foundation.

Anthony Joseph
Caribbean Roots

British and Trinidadian singer, novelist and spoken-word artist Anthony Joseph is finally coming out and saying it: he’s got Caribbean Roots. As you might guess based on the title, this record is all about Caribbean rhythms and melodies - but never without freely formed lyrics and some crazy and equally ...view item »

Bernard Purdie
Lialeh

1974’s Lialeh is regarded as “the first major black porn movie”, and who are we to disagree? With a film like that to accompany, it should be no surprise that the original soundtrack, by Bernard Purdie, is some of the sexiest, funkiest material you ever heard. I mean, these are literally porn grooves. ...view item »

Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids
We Be All Africans

What we have here is something many assumed wouldn’t ever happen: new music from Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids.

Prince
Controversy

The recently-departed Prince was always happy to pursue Controversy. This fourth album of his achieves that by combining Prince’s super-sexual obsessions with political comment (see ‘Ronnie, Talk to Russia’ for example).

Prince
1999

The best way to celebrate the memory of the suddenly-departed Prince surely isn’t to read through hundreds of obituaries and thinkpieces.

Men of North Country
