Kamasi Washington – The Epic 3xLP

If you’ve managed to track down and wear the grooves out on every Coltrane bootleg out there, then you owe it to yourself to inject some new blood into your record collection. Most write-ups about the new Kamasi Washington album aren’t going to miss an opportunity to drop a mention of Kendrick Lamar in for the benefit of their SEO, but it’s important to note here that this album really has not much at all to do with Kendrick Lamar or his new album To Pimp A Butterfly (Page 1 of Google search results here we come!). Great. Fucking. Jazz. Like we haven’t been blessed with for a long time. Pick up The Epic on 3xLP from ninjatune.net.

Psychemagik presents Magik Sunset Part 2 2xLP

So if you are not currently suffering from a shortage of income, why not throw some money at Psychemagik, since they’ve gone and rescued a few crucial and, indeed, magikal pieces for your listening pleasure. Part 2 of the Magik Sunset compilation is now available for preorder at lengrecords.bandcamp.com and comes highly recommended for anybody interested in all things psychedelic and groovy.

Circe 2xLP (by members of Sigur Rós)
