Happy Mondays - Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches


Few days ago, i saw "24 Hour Party People", again. Very funny movie. And it took me back to the old days. End credits wasn't even finished and from my speakers are already coming out dirty "Happy Mondays" rhythms.
End of '80, it was interesting time, British people discovered drugs & dancing and created a whole new scene, based on dance rhythms, early acid and rave scene. In that context arrives "Mondays". And they was rogues, in real sense. Music was dance music, yes. But they sounded dirty, they had filthy mind and groove, groove was unforgettable. In one word, they was a rock band. Nasty rock band. And that is what we all like, right? :P

Alice Coltrane - Journey in Satchidananda


Alice Coltrane is giant. Why? Well, try to imagine an overall sound that represents life in its essencee. Life like journey. Not an easy task. We humans are too small, our mind will always have barrier. And what about Alice? She just entered the studio and recorded this powerful pieces, i believe, without much thinking. 
Alice, she must be a giant.

Bongwater - The Big Sell-Out


I suppose, this album owes its sound to psychedelic sound of late '60's and early '70's. But, that doesn't say that record is outdated, just the opposite, it's timeless. They dig in our past just to spoke to us in our present. Their thoughts are sharp, sometimes satiric and playing is always inspiring and imaginative. Also, this record very varied in genres, that's why it's not so easy catch. But, try to imagine everything good in popular music, probably you'll find it here.
In other words, those who think great, well, they can't go backwards :)

Free Form Funky Freqs - Urban Mythology, Vol. 1


The fact that this album is result of third meeting of these guys say a lot to us. Vernon Reid, Jamaaladeen Tacuma and Calvin Weston can play anything they want, at any time. Also, maybe they work fast, but result is very complex set of songs and nothing less than excellent.
But what is really important here, this is record of a free spirit. When you let this record loud, both body and mind are satisfied. And after all, that is all that counts :)
