3035261, New Release Friday 2021-10-22
Posted by thebigfunk, Fri Oct-22-21 09:19 AM
I swear there was a ton of shit dropping today but right now I can't think of or find much of it, lol. But a few things I'm checking for sure:

Tall Black Guy & Ozay Moore - Of Process and Progression
* Listening to this now, just a few tracks in but already feeling like this might be the pick of the week. Just a lot of fun so far. This is TBG's year for sure.

Quantic and Nidia Gongora - Almas Conectadas
* This should be super tight -- singles have all been great. Good reminder to revisit their earlier collab, Curao, from 2017.

Bedouine - Waysides
* Kind of a throwback to sparse but lush late 60s/70s folk a la Nick Drake without ever feeling purely imitation. I liked her last album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy, a lot -- great songwriting and a very patient approach to each song's arrangement. Good fall music waking up/winding down music if it's your thing.

Omar Sosa and Seckou Keita - Suba
Sosa's piano + Keita's kora + their combined rhythmic genius should make for a really engaging listen -- really excited for this one.

Also, new live recording of Coltrane/Love Supreme, "Live in Seattle" from 1965. Definitely available on Spotify, I'm assuming elsewhere too. Good article here: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/19/arts/music/john-coltrane-a-love-supreme-live-in-seattle.html

Lots of bigger mainstream stuff out too. What's everyone looking for?

Released last month but this just came on my shuffle and holy shit, it's good. Haven't listened to the album in full yet, moved it back up the list a bit for sure! Link below

3035286, Cesar Comanche/Poe Mack - A Promise Not to Sting
Posted by DJR, Mon Oct-25-21 03:23 PM
Dope project. Comanche always gets beats that I like. Lots of Khrysis on here, a few from 9th, DJ Flash. Love to see a lot of JL still working together.
3035305, Gangster Music Vol. 2 (compilation)
Posted by thebigfunk, Thu Oct-28-21 09:45 AM
I think this is basically a compilation. Surprising number of known names here: Ovrkast, Black Milk, Iman Omari, DaM-Funk, Zeroh, MED, Wun Two, Open Mike Eagle to name a few. Lot of new folks too.


Just listening now so can't really weigh in on quality too much but I *think* these are new tracks? Interesting mix so far though (but I've skipped a few tracks right away, too, lol).
