Don Carlos Once in a great while there comes an album that has real depth and musicality that on each listen, continues to integrate with your nervous system, inspiring your own creativity towards the possible....this is one of those albums. Beautifully performed and produced, it's one of those GEMS that truly could find a home in any collection no matter your taste. Favorite track: Time Squeeze.

Jewish Lightning Lapa seems to come into his own (with support of the Loci collective) on this release. Tor and Emancipator will need to make some room in the first-class lounge, I suspect ; - ). This full-length is a real beauty with some longer pieces that really work the space and overall a more realized, unique but-still-Loci groove to it all. Much more than I expected, it's on third rotation for today atm. Nice one, Lapa! Favorite track: Talk to the Bass.
