We normally get a good amount of promo material around here from publishers and record labels and I do a horrible job of passing the “good cheer” along, but this will change, starting now. This week we got in a very nice package Stones Throw. The previous package they sent us was nothing-less-than-amazing, custom LP covers hand drawn and sprayed by Jeff Jank himself.
This latest package included Dam-Funk’s Rhythm Trax V4 which is a collection of boogie space synths over some galactic beats. Dam-Funk is someone you should find more about, amazing talent and a strange guy… in a good way. He needs to get booked in Minneapolis.
If “Afrodelic Kraut Funk” sounds like something you could get into, check out Karl Hector & The Malcouns. Its really a flawless lp that should be getting more attention. If you like this, also check out the Heliocentrics who recently hooked up with Mulatu (Broken Flowers soundtrack, etc). Also for sure check out Now Again Records for more of that “clean” sound.
Since this month is Dilla Month, you should check out what is going on over at Stones Throw. They just posted a new Obey poster featuring J Dilla.
Whew. Never a dull moment.
