Aloha Got Soul’s latest release is a reissue of a rare psychedelic Christian folk record by a Hawaiian project called ʻĀina, which, according to their Bandcamp album site, “means land or earth in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, the Hawaiian language.”

It’s definitely a product of the 1970s, full of hippy vibes, a naïve sense of idealism, and themes which would be recognizable to people who go to Pentecostal Churches. There was nothing bad about this release at all. It was a smooth, mellow and enjoyable listen.

We would like to thank all of you who ‘liked’, commented and generally supported the blog.  It is because of your interest that we share these charming oddities with you. AMOT… plan to be very busy next year, and will also do more with Hip Priest and A Garden of Earthly Delights, our collective wiki.

We end the year courtesy of Jeff Gburek’s field recording in Romania, a small slice of heaven to end a good 2018 in the hopes that 2019 will be that much better.  Consider purchasing the complete album here.

Since the weather has been hovering near the 10-degree Celsius mark this evening, now would be the perfect time to share a chilly, yet inviting, ambient album courtesy of the blog’s friend, Robert Scott Thompson. Though this release is available through Acousmatique Recordings, he also has his own Bandcamp site worth perusing.

Darkjazz goes film noir. E.E. Engström & The Twin Street Tree Trunk Love Ensemble provide a gorgeous soundtrack to enjoy a dry martini with. Imagine the aforementioned Darkjazz mixed with something that would make Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (gone instrumental) proud, not to mention having a twang of creepy country. The vibe is dark, unsettling, and hopefully just a taste of what should be an amazing 2019 for the group.

Should you have a Spotify account, I suggest adding the group here.

It’s time to wrap up things for the end of the year, and the next couple of posts will help me close up shop for 2018.  I want to thank Alberto Matsumura for his friendship and for sending me a loud, electro, proggy, Neu!-ish killer of a space-rock/techno mish-mash EP to enjoy.

Paraphrasing the Soul Sonic Force and sorting through today`s releases for tunes that could have graced Alfie & Leo`s Amnesia dance floor. JMS have reissued Henri Texier`s first two LPs.

I’ve crowed about this in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.  If I don’t see top-shelf artists like Santiago Fradejas, Jeff Gburek or Jan-Dirk Platek (among a host of others) on a year-end list, it’s not worth that much to me.  Still, Bandcamp is a very valuable resource overall, and despite the occasionally lame SJW-infected reviews one gets subjected to, there are quite a few gems in this list of 100.

I don’t know if it will ever replace the original performed by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, but indie darlings Khruangbin do an absolutely lovely rendition of Christmas Time Is Here, originally shown on “A Charlie Brown Christmas” in 1965.
