Two incredible albums dropped today.

The first I have been anticipating for a long time now, it's the debut album of The Mighty Sceptres, a collaboration between guitarist Nick Radford and singer Angeline Morrison. On All Hail The Mighty Sceptres! they effortlessly and beautifully capture the sound and attitude of 60's soul, from funk to doo-wop to R&B.

 

The second is one that I wasn't expecting but am just as excited about, it's a new album by rapper Ghostface Killah, Sour Soul, where he's backed by Toronto jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD, who lay down some great 70's blaxploitation style beats for the Ghost to flow over.


We'll be checking out some of my favorite tracks from both the albums above on today's edition of That Righteous Jive . 

 On top of that we've got Red Martina; a downtempo hip-hop group from Philadelphia that combines the talents of producer Stoupe (formerly of Jedi Mind Tricks), multi-instrumentalist Ish Quintero, Emcee Noesis (of Philadelphia Slick), and vocalist Hayley Cass. Last week they released an amazing live album, simply titled Live.

We'll also hear a few tracks by Modest Mouse from their upcoming album Strangers to Ourselves (out Mar. 17).

Stream it all live February 24th, 5pm-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio!
