Groove Armada, Andrew W.K., Kurt Elling and Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
A Lovebox full of questions
It's time to hit the dancefloor with two albums from the electronic music duo Groove Armada. The oldest one is the 2002 album Lovebox, which includes some of their finest tracks. It features collaborations with artists like Neneh Cherry and Richie Havens. Their fifth studio album Soundboy Rock is an unpredictable mix of breakbeats, trip hop and electro driven songs. The diversity and continuity of their previous work Lovebox is combined with some exciting heaviness on this album. Both releases contains an insert with exclusive liner notes by Andy Cato and Soundboy Rock contains an exclusive poster. Both albums are released as 2.000 individually numbered copies on coloured vinyl.
The American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew W.K.
released several successful albums. His first release in nine years is the brand new album You're Not Alone,
for which he recorded a bunch of powerful songs. The album is available as a first pressing of 750 individually numbered copies on light purple (LP1) and dark purple (LP2) vinyl. Another excellent new album is The Questions,
recorded by the American jazz vocalist Kurt Elling.
The Grammy award winner Kurt Elling can be seen as one of the best jazz vocalists of his time. The Questions
is his musical response to the times of anxiety and tension in which we're living right now. The rich and compelling compositions consists of 8 covers and 2 new written songs. He sings a fantastic version of Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall".
As our follow-up of the last month released The Dark Side of the Moog volume 1
we got part 3
from this incredible electronic series by Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook
. The third instalment in the series is based on the Pink Floyd album "Atom Heart Mother". This album got a dark themed kind of feeling, but also some upbeat melodic parts. The fourth instalment in the series is based on the Pink Floyd album "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn". Bill Laswell joins the team on this record and co-created some fast paced jams and loud and dark parts. Both releases includes an insert and the front covers of the first 4 volumes form one image together.
