New Additions:

Boogie Hustlers CDBoogie Husters - Boogie Hustlers CD - On their third album, the Boogie Hustlers have once again found a way to seamlessly merge various genres of music into a sound that is uniquely their own. Strikingly different from the band's previous album True Colors, their newest self-titled release Boogie Hustlers is a bare bones, back to basics, beautiful blend of classic soul and rock n' roll teamingwith emotional, heartfelt songs about love and life. From the driving road anthem "9 Deep" to the mellow masterpiece "Down the Line", this eclectic album proves to be their best yet. $12


Shpongle DVDShpongle - Live from the Roadhouse 2008 DVD - As an artist, it's always good to challenge yourself... and the thought of translating all the complex layers in a shpongle album into a live show with a band gave me a panic attack... and still does! Pretty early on I realized the secret would be to bring in musicians far better than ourselves... and lots of them! Two weeks before the show the band had never even met each other, even though I had recorded some of them individually in my studio for previous Shpongle albums. We all rehearsed in a darkened room, with no air or daylight, getting to know each other by smell alone... and perhaps sound. Reams of manuscript paper littered the floor, everyone wore ear plugs, and all I could think was "What the hell am I doing?" . We didn't know if we would ever repeat the performance, so recorded it for posterity... Surely only an idiot would actually release their first ever gig though, right? We hope you like it... it was made with love, sweat and laughter.... Welcome to Shpongleland! $16.98

Buckethead & Friends - Enter the ChickenBuckethead & Friend - Enter the Chicken (re-release) - The ever mysterious and amazingly talented guitarist and theme park manager Buckethead has opened the doors to his famed Bucketheadland once again, and this time he has asked his friends to help him provide the thrills and chills to his guests. Complete with brand new bonus track Shen Chi, Enter the Chicken is ready to take listeners on another sonic loop. Also on board are the vocal performances from many of today's brightest musical talents including Saul Williams, Efrem Schulz (Death By Stereo), Maura Davis, Azam Ali (300 Soundtrack) and Serj Tankian himself. These artists as well as the others that are featured on the album were hand picked by Tankian and Buckethead to ensure that each song takes the listener on a unique musical voyage. The 12-track adventure is filled with sonic twists and turns that will leave listener's ears delighted and their mouths overflowing with enthusiastic comments. $11.98

New Monsoon - Live CD review

Camp Barefoot

New Additions:

Zach Deputy - Sunshine CDZach Deputy - Sunshine CD - Sunshine was conceived of as an effort to capture the feel and technique of Zach's live show, and much of it was recorded like he performs--in real time with layered loops. However, recording the live looping technique could conceal the chops and virtuosity of his live playing so Zach recorded 5 tracks with the support of the first rate musicians of Ryan Montbleau Band. Sunshine is thus a reflection of Zach's one man show and his front man/guitarist abilities. Each aspect of his artistry is captured by two radically different approaches to recording, which--although antithetical in many respects, neatly capture the essence of Zach Deputy and the intriguing, uplifting hybrid of soul, gospel, rhythm and blues, calypso and hip-hop that is his own inspired invention. $14.99


Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band - Greatest Hips Vol II CDYo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band - Greatest Hips Volume II CD - "Greatest Hips" is a series of live albums that are made up of selected songs that were multi-track recorded, and professionally mixed and mastered. These recordings act as a digital bookmark of a period of time in Booty Band history. Often referred to as a truly live experience and a very visual performance, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band has put together this compilation in order to bring the live experience of a show to your home, to your car, to your living room to re-live again and again. $13.99


Scythian - Live CDScythian - Live CD - Tracks include old standards like New York Girls, Devil Went Down to Georgia, Wisemaid Set, Gypsy Fiddle, My Son John, Hava Nagila and more! And we introduced some originals as well, with Cubicles and Tylenol, Dance All Night and Hey Mama Ya. 15 tracks in all, recorded in 11 different cities - don the dancing shoes and prep the taps for this one! $15


The Motet - Dig Deep CDThe Motet - Dig Deep CD - Dig Deep is a tapestry of sound that pushes the expectations of any listener who is familiar with the band's signature mix of afrobeat, electronica, funk, and jazz. Dig Deep presents The Motet revisited and refreshed, showcasing 12 great musicians who have contributed to the band over the years. Much of the material is geared toward the studio setting rather than their famed live shows, which is evident in Watts' rich production of interweaving rhythms and melodies. But in addition, every song on the 11-track album expresses the talents of these great musicians and plays well to the roots of the band's signature sound. $7.99


Amy Hendrickson & the Prime DirectiveAmy Hendrickson & the Prime Directive CD - This six song EP is well worth your time and money as each song showcases the band's creative versatility. Various genres of music such as: folk, rock, funk, alternative, jazz, blues and psychedelic experimentation are all represented on this one-of-a-kind musical journey. The lyrics are meaningful and heart-felt. The instrumentation has emotion and passion. The band has received tons of local, national and international radio airplay with rave reviews. You are sure to enjoy the debut of this band from the rich and diverse music scene of Saint Augustine, Florida USA $7.99


Clay Ross - Matuto CDClay Ross - Matuto CD - Matuto (ma-two-toe) is Brazilian slang for country bumpkin.  Imagine the sound of a Brazilian Carnaval in the Appalachian Mountains.  A sound where exotic percussion instruments rumble beneath blues drenched vocals, Telecaster twangs, and folksy fiddle tunes.  Now, imagine these sounds in the hands of some of NYC's finest young improvisers as they light up club and festival stages world wide. $12


Funkaponya CDFunkuponya - Funkuponya CD - Funkuponya, a quartet based out of Raleigh, North Carolina was formed by a chance meeting off Craigslist in the spring of 2008. Featuring Doug Carter on guitar, Brian Werner on keys, Leo Kishore on bass, and Carl Blackwell on drums, the band strives to create ear catching melodies mixed with heated improvised jams, resulting in a rhythmic experience that keeps the body moving. Polished guitar mingles with stratospheric keyboards to keep the audience on their toes. All the while, the no-nonsense rhythm section keeps the music honest and forward-moving. These are the new guys on the Southeast funk and jam scene. $11.99


MMW - Radiolarians III CDMMW - Radiolarians III CD - The third and final installment in their Radiolarians trilogy featuring the passionate and gritty traditional 'Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down,' the anthemic 'Undone,' and the Latin-influenced acoustic opener 'Chantes Des Femmes.' Overall, Radiolarians III finds the trio doing what they do best - melding genres and improvising. What results, is maybe the strongest and most cohesive album of the entire Radiolarian's series. $15.99

Last Week's Additions:

Assembly of Dust - Some Assembly Required CDAssembly of Dust - Some Assembly Required CD - 'Some Assembly Required' contains the strongest collection of songs the group has created to date, each expertly crafted tune illuminated by a stellar lineup of guests. Every musician recruited lends their considerable talents in service of band leader Reid Genauer's skillful compositions, an inspired, inventive and spirited version of American rock and roots music. Each of Assembly of Dust's songs are realized with an ace band and a diverse collection of collaborators (including Bela Fleck, David Grisman, John Scofield, Mike Gordon, Richie Havens, Grace Potter, Jerry Douglas, Keller Williams, Mike Gordon, Tony Rice, Martin Sexton & more). $9.98

10ft Ganga Plant - Bush Rock10ft Ganga Plant - Bush Rock CD - "Bush Rock", is their most inspired and accomplished to date. Includes vocals by Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid & features the core crew of 10 Ft. who are associated with John Brown's Body. "Bush Rock" shows the Plant growing to new heights, while keeping their feet firmly rooted in a warm 70's roots vibe. Standout tracks "Too Much Gun a Bust" & "Got To Be a Soldier" include powerful heart wrenching vocals reminiscent of the greats like Jacob Miller & Joe Higgs. Bush Rock is a well rounded reggae/dub excursion and features both heavy dub tracks and silky sweet songs like the Melodica driven "Machete Strike". $12.98

Rev Payton's Big Damn Band - The Whole Fam Damnily CDRev Payton's Big Damn Band - The Whole Fam Damnily CD - The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band may technically only be comprised of three people, but their name is no misnomer. Although the family-based act--which is comprised of fingerstyle guitarist Reverend Peyton, his wife and washboard player Breezy Peyton and drummer/brother Jayme Peyton--have only been around for three years, in that time period these country-blues aficionados from rural Indiana have played more than 250 shows annually and logged more miles on their van than most acts who have been around for a decade. "We end up playing with a lot of punk rock bands and any kind of roots acts from bluegrass to alt-country to rockabilly to you name it," the Reverend himself answers when asked what a typical Big Damn Band performance is like, "we'll play with anyone, really." $11.98


SOJA - Get Wiser CdSOJA - Get Wiser CD - The second full-length album from the VA-based roots outfit Soldiers of Jah Army (SOJA), Get Wiser, absolutely reserves their place in the annals of roots Reggae history. Their diverse sound bears the signs of many influences, including elements of rock-n-roll, hip-hop, Latin rhytms, and of course, pure Roots Rock Reggae. Likewise, their ever-widening fan base covers the spectrum, far beyond simply hardcore Reggae enthusiasts. Get Wiser reveals a great deal of the growth and maturity one would hope to find in a sophomore release. A variety of styles and sounds abound, with typically melodic arrangements juxtaposed against pure DJ chants and rhymes. Lead singer Jacob Hemphill's trademark throaty vocals lend an earthy feel, while tight arrangements and dead-on drum and bass energize and move the recording forward. Add some sheer rock guitar riffs and a generous helping of dubbed-out special effects, and you have the recipe for some quality listening. $13

Leftover Salmon & Cracker - O' Cracker CDLeftover Salmon & Cracker - O' Cracker Where Art Thou CD - This CD is just as unreal as it's premise indicates! Worlds collide on this new release, which features the pop-soul songs of Cracker being re-interpreted with the music supplied by Leftover Salmon. All your early 90s faves are here..."Low", "Get Off This", "Eurotrash Girl"...but they've had their DNA altered by the slamgrass crazies in LOS! Backwoods alternative! $9.99

Jeff Bujak - Alive Like the Spine CDJeff Bujak - Alive Like the Spine CD - Jeff Bujak generates heavily organized piano progressions, twists and winds them amid constantly evolving poly-rhythmic electronic beats and constructs a sound that is not only unique, but extremely fresh to the underground music scene. Bujak is a solo performer that uses computers, keyboards, effects, samplers and vocals to create a 'progressive-piano groove.' He creates a sound that unites keyboard influences of Peter Gabriel, Album Leaf and Bruce Hornsby with the hard driving rhythms of Prodigy and DJ Shadow. Bujak's 3rd full length solo record in 3 years that pushes 78-minutes of electronic music to the boundaries of familiarity and proceeds beyond to explore the unknown of what hasn't been done before; the 'new' kind of music! $12
