Mavis Staples - "Only For The Lonely"
A timeless classic  recorded at the legendary Stax Recording Company, Muscle Shoals Sound and A&R Recording Studios.
Orbital - "Orbital"
Orbital's first album, commonly referred to as the "Green Album".  Circular logo on the cover differs according to format - LP, CD, MC. Some Orbital releases refer to this album as L.P., C.D., M.C.
Albert King - "I Wanna Get Funky" 
  •  This 1973 release has King using his upside-down Flying V to slash a blues path through the Memphis Horns, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and the dawn-of-disco funk rhythm players. He half-sings with one eye on B. B. King and Bobby Bland and the other fixed on hot-buttered soul crooner Isaac Hayes. "Crosscut Saw" best captures the album title, with the leader and astounding drummer, Al Jackson, charbroiling a song the two had soul basted back in the mid 1960s with Booker T. Jones.
Leon Bridges -   "Coming Home"
It was only last summer that Leon was singing open mics in his hometown Fort Worth, TX. One of those open mics was attended by Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of the notable indie band White Denim who were absolutely floored by Leon's voice, songs, and creative vision. 

Midnight Sun

The Goastt is two people, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. It is, in itself, a chimera; a fabulous creature made with parts of two distinctly different creatures. It is also an acronym for The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger. 2015 sees the duo's release of Midnight Sun, a guided tour of bold, shape-shifting sonic murals and evocative lyrical panoramas. Plucking musical ingredients from all over the map, the album has a highly imaginative and distinct feel. It celebrates the unusual and the grandiose but fundamentally just rocks hard and feels good.

Hey guys, Javi here. We are another week older, and another week wiser. When people ask us what's been the most exciting part of being in the neighborhood, the answer is easy: the look on all of our faces when that new release comes in. When you see that 12x12 with it's pristine gloss and unique album art, you get a feeling that words simply cannot capture.
