Oh, and there are these, too...















And of course, a new favorite (mentioned by member vinyl95)



Again, I have most of these on vinyl, except that Lisa Lougheed number (Drat!) Still, who knew Canadian content could be this good???

Being from the Detroit area, I also found a 45' called "Break The Chain" by a band called Rebel Heels. It featured local music legend Liz Larin, and should've gotten another chance...

The album, "One by one by one" was their only album...No videos, though... :(

Have you heard "Icarus" by The Paul Winter Consort?

I do love my funk, as well...and if the world is a just place, this will be a major hit! If any of you dig the work of Cameo, Zapp, The Gap Band, Lakeside, Con Funk Shun, Parliament, The Ohio Players, The Sugarhill Gang, and the like, pay attention, 'cause this one's seriously FUNKED UP!!

OK, I'm a little excited again...I've expressed my love for the rootsy rock and soul of both J.D. McPherson and Alabama Shakes before...Now, I see that Alabama Shakes has a brand new album coming out called "Sound & Color", and it sounds pretty funky, and the record covers a lot of ground genre-wise...Even trippy psychedelia and extended instrumental breaks...Brittany Howard, of course, could sing the phone book...

Check out the funky first single...



And speaking of JD McPherson, he just keeps chugging along, too...Wouldn't Little Richard sound great duetting with this man???





Looks like another album or two will be added to the collection soon... :D

While searching for some JD McPherson, I stumbled across this girl...While I love my Alison Krauss and plenty of classic country, she has a mesmerizing voice and face that I can't escape...

They are simply awesome. Finally a great new artist after years of not hearing something new that I really like. A copy of their LP is in transit to my house.

I guess my latest discovery was last year when I saw Jungle on the Jools Holland show.
Bought the album on vinyl and downloaded the MP3 for the car.
Try a listen to Jungle, a great band.

For those that like long-form psych/prog with jazz touches and vintage keys in a modern setting, here is Elephant9, from Norway. File along with other nordic groups like My Brother the Wind and Gösta Berlings Saga. I just discovered these guys a couple months ago and have bought two of their albums on vinyl and love them.

OK, guys...Being from Michigan, I've seen a lot of artists come and go over the years...We've seen the likes of The Stooges, MC5, Alice Cooper...We know every line of every Bob Seger cut...Motown is the music that runs through our blood, so it takes a lot to faze a Michigander...But recently, I came across the music of these two talented young ladies, and soon enough, they will probably tear up The Motor City and then, the entire world, with their brand of soul, pop, & rock n' roll...I now present to you, Stereo Jane!!




Keep in mind that these tracks are a little older, and they apparently have much new music in the works! I'll be really excited to hear what these girls have in store for the future...

Here is more info on them, and a story I read recently...
