Grammy-winning musician Gregory Porter is an incredibly gifted, versatile musician. Sure, he’s best characterized as a jazz vocalist, but has the ability to dip into multiple genres. His pipes are absolutely stunning. A prime example of Porter’s versatility is the song at hand, “Revival,” which appears as the final track on his sixth studio album, All Rise, which arrives April 17, 2020. Even if you don’t consider yourself a jazz aficionado or enthusiast, “Revival” just might change your mind. Mark my words – this Porter, Oliver Rockberger, and Troy Miller co-write is special!

Her lush voice over her often dreamy arrangements make her my go-to visionary for love. She makes romance feel like cake, while singing to how unsweet it can turn. Thus, her acoustic renditions of her favorite and most beloved songs, in new album Sides, are still magical but feel more rooted in her lyrical wonders over love. I often laud King’s voice for its instant distinctiveness and clarity. She makes her emotional purpose and presence so clear in its desire: to make feelings felt. EVERY SONG is emotional in this world because, as human beings, we can’t stop talking about our feelings. Even numbness is, technically, the feeling of not feeling. Yet, Sides adds weight to feelings; connecting them to the choices and dreamed opportunities we hope to gain with loving someone else. In some ways, having a partner in life is not just about having a companion for your life’s path but also having a new path, and King captures that with Sides.

Four life-long friends, Ricky Nunn (vocals), Mitch Ayling (drums) Luke Ayling (bass) and Dan Le Gresley (guitar) formed their first band when they were still at school in Essex, playing countless working mens clubs, and finally becoming The Milk. The Milk prove that sometimes it takes a few bumps to find the right direction. Often it involves experience, guts and self-belief to trust yourself and venture from one to find another. The Milk are a band that believe with utter conviction that theyve now found their way. Everything seems to agree with them from releasing the critically acclaimed album "Favourite Worry" (Wah Wah 45s), selling out London's Union Chapel and touring with Fun Lovin' Criminals at the beginning of 2017, to their sell-out UK tour climaxing at London's KOKO in Camden town. The Milks third studio album is scheduled for release in early 2020.

There is deep soul in the music of Devon Gilfillian but for the talented Nashville-based singer-songwriter and bandleader, that descriptor goes way beyond a mere genre classification. Following his electrifying 2016 debut EP with upbeat singles like “High” and “Troublemaker” in 2018, Gilfillian signed to Capitol Records and hit the road performing with the likes of Anderson East, Keith Urban, Gladys Knight, Kaleo, The Fray, Mavis Staples, and more. In early 2019, Gilfillian traveled to Africa to find healing and inspiration before headlining a tour in Scandinavia and opening for Brothers Osborne on their spring tour. His latest single "Get Out and Get It" off of his forthcoming full-length record is available now.

Formed in Queens, NY in the early 1960s, The Exciters were a dynamic R&B; quartet consisting of lead singer Brenda Reid and her producer/writer husband Herb Rooney, plus vocalists Carolyn Johnson and Lillian Walker. The group rose to prominence in 1962, when their hit single ‘Tell Him’ rose to #4 on the U.S. pop chart. The Exciters continued releasing quality music for years, including their 1969 RCA album Caviar And Chitlins, a vintage slice of soul / R&B; from perhaps the most important era in the genre's history. Long out-ofprint, Caviar And Chitlins is now available on vinyl for the first time in decades. Discover it now thanks to this official reissue from Nature Sounds.

O.C. Smith at Home was the finest showcase for the singer's warm, baritone vocals. Produced by Jerry Fuller, the LP's songs revolved around home and heart. The LP cover featured the singer walking with a little boy. The second single, the rousing, dynamic "Daddy's Little Man," hit Billboard's charts in fall 1969. Its flip side was the driving, horn-accented soap opera-themed "If I Leave You Now." The lushly orchestrated "The Learning Tree" was the opening title theme of the family drama movie directed by Gordon Parks. "Friend, Lover, Woman, Wife" cracked the R&B Top 25. All of this musical magic was wrapped up in the great arrangements of H.B. Barnum. Some of the LP tracks appeared on his O.C. Smith's Greatest Hits.

It’s been three and a half years since the Haiti-born and Montreal-based dance producer Kaytranada released 99.9%, his lush, bubbly, and guest-heavy debut album. In the time since then, Kaytranada has released plenty of one-off singles and collaborations, but he hasn’t shown any interest in making another LP. 99.9% proved conclusively that Kaytranada’s whole style could work brilliantly at album length, so it’s great to learn that he’s got another new full-length coming out. We won’t have to wait long for it.

Grammy award-winning Gregory Porter returns with Take Me to the Alley, the much-anticipated follow-up to his 2013 Platinum album Liquid Spirit. The coolest guy in music, the album features a reworked version of ‘Holding On’, the track Gregory co-wrote with electronic act Disclosure, as well as autobiographical songs including ‘Don’t Lose Your Steam’ and title track ‘Take Me To The Alley’, both written with his family in mind. In the Fall of 2015 Porter finally found the time to return to the studio in New York City to record Take Me To The Alley. As he's done on his previous three albums, Porter teamed with producer Kamau Kenyatta to craft a collection of stirring originals that juxtapose the personal and political.

City in the Sky, the final LP that the Staple Singers made with Stax Records, features the same socially conscious lyrics and powerful singing that had become their trademark before the album's 1974 release. While the original recording didn't have the kind of explosive singles like "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There" that helped them become legends of soul music, this is by no means a weak album. The opener "Back Road Into Town" seethes with energy and anger-tinged pride, while "Washington We're Watching You" combines that same message of anger and pride with organ and horn-driven funk.

The Staples' finest single album, containing three Top Ten R&B hits, "Respect Yourself," "I'll Take You There," and "This World." The first two also were pop Top 20s, "I'll Take You There" going all the way to number one. AllMusic Review by Rob Bowman

The best and most famous cuts from their glory years at Stax. Includes their massive hits "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There"; less famous but similar gospel-funk fusions like "Touch a Hand (Make a Friend)" and "Heavy Makes You Happy (Sha-Na-Boom Boom)"; and less expected items like a cover of "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." It does not, however, have their 1975 number one single "Let's Do It Again," which they recorded just after cutting their ties to Stax. AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger
