Twin Temple - God Is Dead (CD)€23,00

Paul Asaro & the Fat Babies - What a Heavenly Dream: The Fats Waller Rhythm Project (CD)€20,00
In this highly-anticipated release, Paul Asaro and The Fat Babies pay homage to the recordings of ”Fats” Waller and His Rhythm. Asaro, already well known to jazz aficionados for his long association with Leon Redbone, takes center stage here with piano and vocals that recall the humor, wit, and sublime piano talents of Waller without ever resorting to slavish imitation. With him are The Fat Babies, favorites on the Chicago jazz scene, who fully capture the spontaneous excitement of the original Waller recordings with a fresh twist. In addition to Asaro at the piano, the band includes Andy Schumm, cornet; John Otto, clarinet; Jake Sanders, guitar; Beau Sample, bass; and Alex Hall, drums. 14 selections including ”I Wish I Were Twins,” ”Your Feet’s Too Big,” ”Don’t Let It Bother You,” ”You’re My Dish,” ”Blue Turning Grey Over You,” ”Truckin’,” and more.
Reed "Paperboy" Eli - Hits And Misses (CD)€20,00
Eli Paperboy Reed’s Hits And Misses is a remastered collection of rarities, originals, & covers, featuring Eli’s spin on Motörhead’s “The Ace of Spades.” Eli takes Motorhead’s hard rock classic and reimagines it as a soul revival with Hammond organ, brass horns, electric guitar, Eli’s signature vocal wails and a backbeat that creates a new take on the song that is no less powerful than the original.
Hits And Misses also includes Eli’s noirish R&B take on Steely Dan’s 1972 hit ”Do It Again” that brings the original song back in time 30 years and a cover of Latimore’s 1974 hit ”Let’s Straighten It Out,” showcasing a vocal intensity that’s not quite as present in the nearly spoken word original.
In addition to covers, Eli Paperboy Reed’s original, IDKWYCTD (I Came to Play) is an anthemic party starter. This high-energy track is featured in Disney’s Marvel comic series, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The album also includes covers of Bob Dylan’s, ”To Be Alone With You,” Merle Haggard’s “I’m Gonna Break Every Heart I Can,” and more.

Lesly's Dynamite - Not As Usual (CD)€15,00
If you like Bill Haley or Stargazers (the old Northern Band sound), you will definitely enjoy this longplayer. The ’normal’ quartet line-up is joined by saxophone and piano. Sometimes it sounds like a good white cover version of an R&B rocker (but they are only own songs!), sometimes there are a few jazz and swing elements, so that also friends of Ray Collins get their money’s worth. In between there are also some backing vocals. So the whole thing sounds like a very clean, professional recording from the 1950s, when the different styles united to form Rock’n’Roll. From the fast but danceable ”Hop and don’t stop”, guaranteed best suited for record-hop, to the ballad, everything is there.
Vintage Trouble - Heavy Hymnal (CD)€18,00
2023 release. History has proven that when the world is in flames, it ignites the empathetic artists to siren their words, music, and rhythm, to blanket our society’s fury and nurse scorched souls. The seemingly endless years of pandemic lockdown and social distancing, coupled with the turbulent plague of civil unrest and racial injustice, called on Vintage Trouble to step into their battle wear. Like so often before, they have spun records to drop onto the fighting grounds, with the intent to freeze the frame long enough to momentarily halt the warring world. And while at ease, we can freely choose to think before we strike or decide to retreat, rather than thoughtlessly charge into repeating history. This collection of heavy hymns is from the heart, and it provides a necessary rise to our ever reckoning.
Cadillac Kings - Crash And Burn (CD)€24,00
”Wow! It might only be the start of the year but The Cadillac Kings have come up with an early, strong contender for ”Blues Album Of 2023” (Norman Darwen, Blues in the South) ”There’s not a single note or word here that doesn’t make me smile … which surely should be more popular in music… you know, the ability to make people smile, even when they’re sad. In one way or another every single one of these 14 songs could be and should be a single. ” (Alan Harrison, Rockin’ Magpie)
Waterhouse Nick - Fooler (CD)€20,00
The title of the sixth album from Californian singer-songwriter Nick Waterhouse is more than just the name of one of its tracks. The Fooler is the new album by Nick Waterhouse, and it’s a lot. Recorded by Mark Neill (Black Keys; Los Straightjackets; Dave Cobb) in Valdosta, Georgia, it’s a song-cycle of sorts, the arc of the album telling a tale of a city and its denizens. The result is a record that offers up new riches and fresh perspectives with every spin. From the hidden corners of ‘Hide & Seek’ and the roadhouse soul of ‘Play To Win’ to the primitive, attitudinal, chugging two-chord thrill of ‘Late In The Garden’, it builds inexorably to the drama of the title track and pulsing roll-and-rock of the final pay off, ‘Unreal, Immaterial’. Play it once and it sounds immediately like a collection of great songs. Play it again – and you will – and it feels like a novel or film slowly unveiling its secrets, kaleidoscopic in its narrative complexity. “Especially during this record, I started just becoming what Allen Ginsberg called a pure breath,” says the artist. “I was becoming pure breath with my ideas.”
Leinonen Marjo & BubliCans - Holy Roller (CD)€15,00
Marjo Leinonen & Bublicans -kokoonpano julkaisee Holy Roller -nimisen albumin 31. maaliskuuta Playground Musicin kautta vinyylinä, CD:nä ja digitaalisesti. Levyn ennakkomyynti alkaa tänään.
Albumilta kuullaan esimakua tänään julkaistun Loose Hat -kappaleen myötä.
– Kepeästi etukenossa kulkeva kappale hyväntuulisine väliosineen innoittaa sauvakävelijän sivakoimaan rivakasti toisenkin kierroksen. Pipo lentoon ja hymyä huuleen! Kappale saattaa osua tunnnehermoon niin, ettei paikalla, iällä, sukupuolella eikä sukupolvella ole merkitystä. Svengi elää ja jatkaa kulkuaan. Pysy kyydissä ja voi hyvin, Leinonen kommentoi.
Marjo Leinonen tunnetaan myös Balls-, Huff´n´Puff- ja Bigfeet & Lala-yhtyeistään sekä useista erilaisten artistien kanssa tekemistä yhteistöistään: Leinosen tulkintaa on kuultu esimerkiksi J.Karjalaisen, Maija Vilkkumaan, Asan ja Ismo Alangon levyillä. Leinonen on palkittu myös blues & roots -musiikin erikoispalkinto Jemmalla.
Marjo Leinosen lisäksi yhtyeeseen kuuluu Petri Kautto, Risto Kumpulainen, Sami Vettenranta ja Ville Niemelä.
Backyard Casanovas - Backyard Stomp (CD)€15,00
Setting their stall out for the first time is The Backyard Casanovas with Backyard Stomp. A debut album conceived after a few practice sessions, followed by a couple of live performances, before being captured on film by Bopflix Films, not to mention a few rounds of a local homebrew to ensure morale was at its highest, to realise that there may just be something in this new project.
