Late Pass: “Spinnin'” by Bastards of Soul

Bastards of Soul

Written by Leo J

It’s Friday and I am closing out the week with some more Dallas music. But before I get into that I want to introduce you to this series, Late Pass. Late Pass covers past releases we missed that should absolutely get the shine they deserve. It’s never too late to go and get new music in your life. Being that this blog is new it seems kind of weird to cover stuff I didn’t cover, but it’s important you are informed on quality music, regardless!

So here’s the Late Pass: “Spinnin’ ” by Bastards of Soul. The Dallas,TX soul band released their project back in February. Before the Covid madness Bastards of Soul was garnering all kinds praise with their release coupling it with a series of sold out pop ups/shows and releasing a music video. Recently their music was featured in a sobering video that covered the first shelter in place weekend in Dallas.

Prior to the LP release in February Bastards of Soul released two lead cuts from the album back in November of 2019 on 45: The Way It Should Be“​/”​The Waiting Time .

The group consists of experienced musicians with various backgrounds of genres. This diversity delivers a wide range of feelings and emotions in their music. From the high energy sounds of “Hard Up and Lonely“, to the slow two step of “Back to The City“. There’s something for every fan of soul/r&b music.

Next week they will release a new 45 featuring a previously unreleased track, dropping May 15th. A huge shout out to all of those behind these projects. Josey Records X Eastwood Music Group. Peep their music and video below and more importantly, go cop that! ~Stay Fresh

Fresh 45 of Nico Gomez , “Lupita” (Bosq Rework)

Written by Leo J

Day 2. Alright I wont keep track of each day but starting out I have to do it to try and find a rhythm. Speaking of rhythm (see what I did there), I’m here to share with you some Afro-Latin sounds from Matsuna Records. It’s a Fresh 45 repress of Nico Gomez and His Afro Percussion Inc., “Lupita”. The standout track comes from his 1971 album “Ritual” wich was recently reissued, along with a 7″ of single of “Lupita”, from Mr.Bongo back in 2013. But this release includes a Bosq Rework that is given a boost in every element of the song. Organs, horns, drums, and that extra bit of undefined flavor that comes with it. The release came out a month ago on their Bandcamp which sold out within the week but as of this morning went live over at Juno. This is absolutely one of those 45 joints every DJ should have in their bag. If nothing the digital version for sure. Go get that.

New Album from Khruangbin, ”Mordechai”

Written by Leo J

Well here we are folks. I promised that I would kick this music blog back up. I will be posting about songs and albums within my crates, deep digs, and new music. I am going to keep the sounds diverse but will keep the site very simple so you don’t have to navigate around too much. As more content is developed I may add other pages but for now it’s straight up blog posts. So here we go.

Today I am bringing you new sounds out of Houston,TX. It comes from a trio band named Khruangbin (pronounced “Kroongbin”). Their sounds are a combination of psychedelic funk infused with global influences. Hopefully that gives a bit of insight to the bands name as it is translated from Thai as “Engine Fly”. They are incredible. Back in February of this year they released a project with Fort Worths own Leon Bridges titled Texas Sun. I only learned of Khruangbin last year at one of our BYOV nights. Luke Sardello from Josey Records brought a copy of their latest dub EP Hasta El Cielo for us to listen to. I was instantly hooked. So I got really excited when I saw an announcement for a new album – Khruangbin, ”Mordechai” . The band itself plays mostly instrumental tracks so to hear vocals on the first single was a treat. Peep the single and video below for Time you and I’ and go cop that pre-order -> Mordechai
