I wanna give some love to Colemine's Soul Scratch LP. I dont play this album enough and everytime I put it on I tell myself it needs spun more.
Fans of st paul & broken bones will dig this.
SOUL SCRATCHPushing Fire LP
Mr.Jukes featuring Charles Bradley
Amazing song, he sounds great!!
Going to see Durand Jones & The Indications at The Brass Ring in Ft. Wayne this Saturday night! Super stoked!
Well, the Durand Jones concert was amazing. I mean, knock-out amazing.
If you have the chance to see him and his band - DO IT.
Daptone is having a stoop sale at their offices on Friday 6/30, 4-8pm. in addition, online all lps will be $10 4-8pm.
Totally agree. I caught them in San Diego on May 31, and they exceeded my hopes and expectations.
I was impressed to realize that The Indications are actually a static band who've been with him since the beginning, and contribute to songwriting, etc., rather than just a revolving set of backing musicians.
The drummer was a blast to watch, and his lead vocal on "Is It Any Wonder" sounded even better live that on the record, and that's saying a lot.
Here's one shot that I snapped:
He's a really nice, genuine guy. Our friend in Fort Wayne told Durand (when he stopped at the bar for a drink before the show) that we had traveled from Upstate New York to see the show and Durand quickly excused himself to come over to talk to me and my fiancee. He thanked us for making the trek and said that he hopes to do some Upstate NY shows soon. We'l definitely be there if they do!
Great photo by the way!

Speaking of Durand Jones & The Indications, they just had a Daytrotter session go up a couple of weeks ago. Not sure if you can listen free or not, but the monthly membership, which you can cancel at any time, is $2.99. Lots of other good sessions from all genres on their site.

Found this in Denver yesterday
Is this his CD the same as their RSD Soul Slabs?
VARIOUS ARTISTSColemine Singles: 20 / 45rpm CD
I love what they're cooking at Colemine!
I think it's pretty close. It would still be a killer CD!
Exciting news from Daptone
Speaking of afrobeat, a local band called Hard Proof just released their album. Good one to check ou if you dig Antibalas.
I like it!
Gonna have to find it when I get home from work!
Thanks for the introduction.
Reminder: this sale is later today.
I was in Brooklyn today and decided to swing by Troutman Street and take a look at the House of Soul. Man, that place is even funkier than I thought!
Incidentally, the blue glittered Daptone sticker that they used to include with mail orders is stuck on the house's mailbox.
How'd we miss this finally getting an official date??
