The People's Temple - Son Of Stone LP

Amazing record from Michigan's Psychedelic foursome, The People's Temple. Recently released on Hozac Records, their debut LP oozes with authentic sounding 60's psych.
Buy the LP, it's a real gem.

Coasting - Various

Not long ago I attended a free gig where Coasting performed as the main act. I made it through the first two acts, but by 12am there were no signs of them performing anytime soon. I bailed. Curse my early wake up calls. I imagine they would have been awesome, though. The duo consists of Fiona, ex-member of now defunct NZ punk outfit The Coolies, and Madison of Brooklyn based Dream Diary.
Their sound reminds me a lot of Vivian Girls' sophomore album, dreamy tunes with some lo-fi grit. Worth checking out.

Jr. Walker & the All Stars - Shotgun

Happy new year everybody, I hope that 2010 treated you well!
As the year wrapped up, I was beginning to enjoy a lot of Motown classics, and I imagine that 2011 will see me delving into a lot more rhythm and blues, soul and funk. Shotgun is the first release from Jr. Walker & the All Stars. First released in 1965, the record centers around a funk jazz fusion sound. Some truly great tracks here.
