Psychedelic Voodoo Chills

Fans of The Black Keys will undoubtably enjoy Dr. John's latest album, Locked Down. Dr. John has been there done that, making his own brand of music for nearly 50 years, now into his seventies he's made another prolific LP, yet another revival of his unique blend of psychedelic voodoo blues, soul and jazz. No coincidence then that this LP is produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Auerbach is not weighted down by nostalgic paths into the Doctors past success, instead we get the big blues riffs, jagged guitars and dirty production we are used to with The Black Keys. Considering Dr.John is a major influence on the Keys it's good to hear his sound has been enhanced by Dan Auerbach's contribution. A big shot contender for album of the year lists I highly recommend Locked Down.

Sweat dripping off the wall

The Black Keys released El Camino at the end of last year, probably a little to late to feature in the best of the year albums charts. But since various tracks from the album have made single status throughout 2012 it's sure to feature in this years lists. Little Black Submarines contributes to what is a truly great LP. Check out this low-fi video directed by Danny Clinch in a small little bar packed with party rockers, building up from the gentle strum, like a Stairway to Heaven, before exploding into the that monster riff and tearing the roof off the joint. Epic track from a band that for me has secured a place in the Rock'n'Roll hall of fame. Enjoy the video…

Break on through to the other side

The Gaslamp Killer's debut proper full-length album Breakthrough is upon us, released officially last week and it's a belter. My first pick is this brilliant sitar-hip-hop track featuring Amir Yaghmai, superb! William 'Gaslamp Killer' Benussen's usual cohort Gunjasufi naturally features on a couple of songs to great effect as well as few others including Computer Jay, Samiyam, Shigeto, Dimlite, Mophono and Daedelus. It's the left-field of the Californian psychedelic hip-hop scene and brings in all Gaslamp's worldly influences - Turkish Funk, Afro wig-outs, trippy hypnotics, scuzzy guitars, banging beats, retro soundtracks and seventies psychedelia. Looking forward to the Flying lotus' new stuff too now. Breakthrough is Highly Recommended!

All killer!

In anticipation of Gaslamp Killer's new LP Breakthrough out next week, I've been listening to his classic mix-tape All Killer: Finders Keepers Records 1-20, from 2009. Mashing-up old rarities from around the world it features some great old, obscure and eclectic music from the likes of Sarolta Zalatnay, Mustafa Özkent, Bruno Spoerri, Vampires Of Dartmoore, Pierre Cavalli, Stanley Myers, Yamasuki and loads more. This tune, three tracks in, is a blend of Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers Steel Drum Orchestra and Serge Gainsbourg's composer of choice Jean-Claude Vannier. If your in the mood for some off kilter, leftfield indulgence then look now further than this unique selection.

Funky Grooves from Mo!

Stereo Deluxe latest edition of their 'Coming Home' series comes from Ralf Droesemeyer and Mark Wetzler aka Mo' Horizons. They say "Selecting these tracks was not only about digging some hip and groovy music, but also to put our own history into a new perspective." One of the best from the series in my opinion, there are some amazing tunes on here including a few of their own tunes and remixes.

Opening with the mighty Southern soul voice of Mighty Clouds Of Joy singer Clay Hammond with his rare Ronin 7inch "You Threw Out Your Lifeline"? The quality only gets better with outstanding tracks from Betty Everett, Fab Samperi, this track by the Soul Sessions, Omara Portuondo, Phyllis Dillion, Argentinian king of the swing guitar Oscar Alemán, Una Mas Trio and much more. Taking in Mo' Horizons own brand of bossa nova and funk as well as the many influences old and new. A great comp that bursts with sunshine and colourful music from around the world. Highly Recommended.
