#1)Budos Band // Burnt Offering
This amazing Brooklyn based instrumental funk ensemble step away from their work with Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley to churn out yet another lush, groovy LP. Their sound and quality are unmistakable.
#2)Yo La Tengo // And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out
The acclaimed moody rock trio came strong with this beautiful, eclectic LP in 2000. Excellent for listening in the morning hours.
#3)Dorothy Ashby // The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby
Excellent reissue of this 1970 funk/jazz masterpiece. If you’re unfamiliar with this Detroit legend, prepare to have your mind blown.
#4)Madvillain // Madvillainy
Madlib and MF Doom at their finest. One of the great hip hop albums of the 2000’s, no doubt.
#5)FKA Twigs // LP1
Deep, moody, ethereal compositions have brought this unique female vocalist into the global spotlight in recent months. Sade vocal vibes over far left field electronic production.
