Cherry Red’s RPM label closed out 2015 on a high note with a couple of releases in today’s spotlight, from mod rockers The Mickey Finn and singer-songwriter Tim Rose.

Ace Records has recently made quite a splash with the first-ever comprehensive compendium from one-hit wonder girl group The Murmaids.  But as the collection so accurately titled A Few of the Things We Love reveals, the girls had more to offer than just “Popsicles and Icicles.”  This collection is pure girl group manna!

The title of The Salsoul Orchestra’s second album said it all – Nice ‘n’ Naasty.  The soul-disco orchestra, originally under the baton of MFSB alumnus Vincent Montana Jr., could serve up nice, shimmering and lushly elegant soundscapes…and naasty floor-filling grooves that practically demanded you hit the dancefloor!  Happily, the group has recently received a lavish […]
