You Are Not Alone
You Are Not Alone finds Mavis Staples teaming up with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, who produced the album and penned several of the songs, and while Tweedy may seem an odd fit, he obviously knew what he was up to, crafting material that fits Staples’ gospel-fueled vocals.Filed under: Blues • R&B / Soul / Funk • Vinyl
The Best Of Soul Train Volume 1

JJ Grey & Mofro
Maybe number five is the charm?
Not that JJ Grey and his ever evolving backing band Mofro care.
But it’s possible that Georgia Warhorse may be the record that pulls them from the glorified cult status they’ve enjoyed for a decade into the lights on the mainstream’s fringes—but don’t count on it.
Grey’s music is far too real; too poetically, sonically, and atmospherically rooted in vintage Southern soul, rock and blues traditions to translate readily into radio fodder.
The music is steeped in funky, greasy, slippery Southern R&B, blues and rock.Filed under: Blues • R&B / Soul / Funk • Rock

The Budos Band
Having scalded listeners’ ears with sonic lava on Budos I and stung them with venomous frequencies on Budos II, The Budos Band delivers on their promise to spread the epidemic of “Budos Fever” far and wide with the release of The Budos Band III.
The cobra is poised to strike if anyone dares challenge The Budos on their quest.
And, if there was ever any question whether the brotherhood of The Budos is instrumental Afro-Soul royalty, the Chateau de Budos that graces the back cover of The Budos Band III assures all that the group is strong - unstoppable even - and will use all of nature’s power to ascend to their rightful throne.Filed under: R&B / Soul / Funk

Blood Like Lemonade
Blood Like Lemonade is a cornerstone for the band and marks the return of essential member Skye Edwards on vocals since their debut release in 2003.
Morcheeba’s multi-instrumentalist, Paul Godfrey, says: ‘This is the record we should have made after “Big Calm” but we had to travel treacherous terrains to get back to our natural habitat.’
Skye adds: ‘Friends have been asking, “What does the new Morcheeba record sound like?” My answer? “It sounds like Morcheeba” Of course!’Filed under: Experimental / Electronic • Pop Musik • R&B / Soul / Funk
The star-studded featured cast includes the legendary Big Boi of OutKast, renowned poet Saul Williams, Psychedelic Dance-Punk troupe Of Montreal, Punk prophets Deep Cotton, and the Wondaland Arch Orchestra. The album was recorded at Wondaland Studios in Atlanta, but written all over the world, including but not limited to Moscow, Prague, Istanbul, Berlin, Amsterdam, New York, and the Palace of the Dogs. The ArchAndroid was inspired not only by the energy of these places, but by such revolutionary musicians and artistic visionaries as Salvador Dalí, Walt Disney, OutKast, Stevie Wonder, Octavia Butler, David Bowie, Andy Warhol, and John Williams.Filed under: Hip Hop / Rap • R&B / Soul / Funk
