I had the honor of reviewing the debut 7-inch release of LA based afro-latin funk band, Jungle Fire, on the Beat Swap Meet blog.  Check it out here.

The Monophonics new album is coming…

My man, DJ MZA, asked me to come play some jazz records on his radio show last month, and he mentioned that he was having a band called The Monophonics come through the following week.  I was not in the know, but I did some research and now I'm officially a fan!  Good timing, too, since their new album, In Your Brain, is scheduled for release in May, courtesy of Ubiquity Records (pre-order here).  A super fresh heavy soul, psych, and funk sound from this bay area outfit. In doing my research, I was able to get a hold of this older 45, thanks to Colemine Records in Ohio (big up to Terry Cole for putting out some amazing music!).

Then I realized they performed in LONG BEACH (what?!) this past December at Harvelle's.  Yet another example of me sleeping on some quality stuff in my own city.  Check their cover of "Love & Happiness."

And here's a quick look at one of their tracks from the new record.
