The Pollyseeds – Sounds Of Crenshaw Vol. 1

Label: ropeadope

Via ropeadope “The Pollyseeds is the brainchild of Terrace Martin.  It comprises a unique assortment of T’s talented homiez, including songwriters/vocalists (Chachi aka Problem, Rose Gold, Wyann Vaughn, Preston Harris, et al.) and musicians (Trevor Lawrence, Brandon Owens, Marlon Williams).  We each have very different styles and, as a unit, we paint audible pictures in technicolor.  The Pollyseeds is sexy and sultry, dynamic and gangsta, funky and musical.”

Alemayehu Eshete – Alteleyeshegnem

Label: Philophon

Via Philophon “Alemayehu Eshete is considered the golden voice of Ethiopia…With this new 7″ he continues his soulful approach on Ethiopian music. His funky classic Alteleyeshegnem is here re-interpreted by the Philophon house band in an even funkier way than the original.”

MNP – Heavy Tint​/​Dip​-​Dab

Label: Delights

Via Delights “Markey Funk’s label Delights is proud to present its new 7” release – the debut single by MNP…The trio explores the sonic path laid by European film and library composers of the 1960’s, and creates its own kind of deep and moody library psych funk sound.”

Moniquea – Blackwavefunk

Label: MoFunk Records

Via MoFunk “Moniquea established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 MoFunk Records debut album Yes No Maybe. For her follow-up, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synthpop sounds of the 80’s. Thus, the album title: Blackwavefunk.”

The NCY Milky Band – Billy & Bess

Label: BMM Records

Very intriguing soulful instrumental project from this French band we just discovered. You can grab the 45 on the Bandcamp page.

“It is difficult to classify these records. At the same time deep and second degree, jazz & funky, may be that the calling “rare french groove” is the most appropriate.”
