Now for new stuff, this week brings us some eccentric releases, first off Candi Staton, whose syrupy smooth voice drifts over heartful arrangements featuring Andrew Bird on the strings. What with Numero Group getting so much love lately, we're hoping you all read your copy of "This Lp Crashes Hard Drives" carefully and saved a little for Honest Jons Records as well.

Next on the list is the release of Sixto Diaz Rodriguez's second album, "Coming From Reality." Just like the last, this album is a comfy blend of music that sounds like it was made by a Mexican Nick Drake whose trip is starting to kick in.
Ok, we got Soul (check), Pysch (check), now how about some Garage Explosion? Adam is mighty disappointed with you for not strapping on your running shoes to come in for this amazing second album from a band that hails from his hometown of Green Bay.
Time to round things off with the cleanup hitter, Calypsoul 70. From Strut Records, the makers of the definitive story of funky Lagos, comes this mixture of Calypso and Caribbean Soul 69'-79'.
Well, that's it for now, make sure to stop by for tickets to Jeff DeMark's newest show this coming arts alive at Muddy Waters and May 1st we'll see the release of The Monks two LPs from Light in the Attic!
