All Hail The Mighty Sceptres!

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.

Downtempo Hip-Hop of 2014

On today's edition of That Righteous Jive we'l be listening to some more great downtempo hip-hop/trip-hop from 2014.

I'll be featuring Red Martina, a group from Philladelphia 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. Yesterday they released their second album together: Come On Home.

We'll also be checking out NYC-based producer Blockhead and the album he dropped today: Bells and Whistles.

On top of that we've got: ArtOfficial, Jazz Spastiks and Catching Flies. Stream it live November 18th, 5pm-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio.
