Join us this Friday at Japp's Since 1879 for the second edition of Strivin’ & 45'n, an all 7" vinyl affair. I'll be playing timeless funk, soul, and R&B sides from my stash for a party unlike any other in the neighborhood. Roll through anytime starting at 9pm and help keep the party popping and hissing all night long.

Poolside's Perfect Summer Playlist

While I don't usually share new digital releases on this site, I couldn't resist throwing a little hype behind Heat, the brand new long player by Los Angeles duo Poolside. I’m hoping they will release a vinyl version soon, but the digital version will have to do for now.

When I first heard of the band a few years ago, their sound was described as "daytime disco" - How perfect is that?! I was a huge fan of their first self-titled release and had been hoping for a follow up ever since. Poolside's sound is historically well-suited for Summer - and Heat falls right in line with that sonic legacy. As we officially dive into Summer, Poolside provides us with the perfect playlist. Cue up the boom-box and relax you and yours with groove’s as warm as the sun and sounds as refreshing as a dip in the deep end.


New Digs | Late May 2017

Here's a snapshot of the Lp’s that I've brought home as of late. I was very excited to find a clean copy of the Freddie Smith's Are You Lonely For Me? as I had never seen it in the wild before. Most of this haul came from the Alpha Records Convention when it passed through Cincy a month or so ago. Happy hunting!


Skin Alley - Skintight (Stax, 1973)

Freddie Scott - Are You Lonely For Me? (Shout, 1967)

James Brown - Sex Machine (Polydor, 1970) <-- German 2Lp opressing

The Fatback Band - Yum Yum (Event, 1975)

Creation - S/T (Atco, 1974)

McLuhan - Anomaly (Brunswick, 1972)
