James Brown and the most amazing backup band in the world tear up two of his classic hits.
I’m not normally a fan of bands who feel the need to use bodily functions to name a band, but Pipi Caca deliver a steaming pile of good music, mixing alternative music, chanson, R&B, trap and a touch of funk here and there. Another great release by La Souterraine Records.
A bit of deep funk has been rescued by our friends in Glasgow, Athens Of The North Records. From their Bandcamp site: Lynn Williams may not be someone you have heard of but her pedigree is strong. Her father was Hank Ballard (of King and James Brown Fame) and her mother was 60s Miami Radio […]
I have no idea what has gotten into the water over in Finland, but the country’s becoming a hotbed of amazing modern soul music. Timmion Records is releasing artists of astoundingly good quality like Willie West, Nicole Willis, and The Soul Investigators. You might want to check out some of their other brilliant artists over […]

And, definitely, kudos to No Condition Is Permanent, because their podcast is a killer. Pictured: Andre “Mr. Rhythm” Williams, R.I.P.. Returning after more than a month’s work related absence, Reeshard & Lee-Roy resumed […]

The Anglo-French singer and guitarist Alexis Evans must have had one hell of a good soul and R&B collection growing up, because he sounds like he studied under the masters. The last 5 years have been amazing for neo-soul music, especially with the likes of Sharon Jones (RIP) and the Dap-Kings, The James Hunter Six […]
