  3. PRESALE | Aladean Kheroufi - Sorry If I Hurt You b/w Nothing Ever Changes (KIM-005) We have a new release, it's a fusion of minimalist soul / fuzz. A catchy A side with a floating island ballad on the flip. It won't appeal to everyone, the B side 'Nothing Ever Changes' has something about it and seems to fit with current times, in that whilst in uncertain, sad times, there is a sense of hope and optimism for the future as we discover our fragility and the need to work together selflessly if we are to survive. The Estimation's 2nd release also out in a few weeks time (it's a really good one). Here's the low down on Kimberlite release KIM005. Youtube links at bottom. Aladean Kheroufi - Sorry If I Hurt You b/w Nothing Ever Changes This brand new release from Kimberlite Records features Aladean Kheroufi with the instantly catchy, danceable number 'Sorry If I Hurt You'. But wait!, flip it over to hear 'Nothing Ever Changes' and you are whisked away on a beautiful lush meditation. It's sparse arrangement of simple vocals and caressing horns provide a blanket of warmth through a journey of reflection and realisation. As a lover of soul music it can be tough to lift your head from boxes of fifty year old 45s. From the iron-hand of Berry Gordy in Detroit to amphetamine-zonked working class kids in the North of England, to harmonizing Tejanos, and California car culture, soul music is a genre of subgenres each requiring nuance to properly understand. It’s intoxicating and addictive. If you’re reading this though, you’ve picked up something different. Aladean Kheroufi, a Canadian by way of Algeria has got something new to show you. His sparse, minimalist sound is a fresh and contemporary examination of soul music which we’re proud to press to vinyl. The A side, Sorry If I Hurt You, is a sober exploration of guilt, victimhood, and the toxic power dynamics found in failed relationships. Syncopated rhythm, cutting fuzz guitar, and haunting background vocals along with Aladean’s breathy delivery give this side an atmosphere you’ll need an oxygen tank to survive. Flip the disc and you’ve got Nothing Ever Changes, a superficially sullen ballad that probes for meaning in self, relationships, and a place in the world. A delicate trumpet and flute arrangement lift the tone of this side from a place of darkness to one of hope, and conveys the spiritual growth that's found when such themes are analysed. Release Date: 27th March 2020 Now available for Pre-Order at www.raretoones.com Whole enquiries to raretoones@gmail.com
  4. The L Allen is the first press, Larry Allen the second. The second press (Larry) surfaced a couple of years or so after Dave Raistick and Arther Fenn discovered it around '81. The second press was always a little more in price, but I have seen more of the second press in recent years, probably not a lot in it. Great Record out of Pittsburgh, I believe.

  8. NEW RELEASE FROM KIMBERLITE RECORDS! (KIM-004) HORNS, HORNS and more HORNS! From Kimberlite Records comes their forth release KIM-004 and this blistering debut single from soulful girl group The Love Rights, a monster double sider that will leave you speechless, breathless or in tears of heart felt joy. Side A is a jaw dropping ballad that harbours familiar echoes of Etta James and Barbara Lynn. The Freddy Benton penned 'Talk of The Town' is almost certainly destined to become a future classic. Meanwhile, Side B reveals a full-on uptempo dancer with a tight funky edge, harmonies and a blistering horn break that would make even Detroit maestro Mike Terry stop and take notice. Both sides of this release are lyrical and musical perfection at its very highest. At the core The Love Rights are big-voiced sisters Amber and Stephanie, with Amber taking lead duties on both tracks here. This, their first release hits hard with a pair of disparate sides that cover a lot of ground. The “A” side Talk of The Town is a firm ballad in the oldies tradition of the East Side Stories compilations and doesn’t even attempt to hide the heavy influence of other big voices like Linda Jones and Barbara Lynn. After a superficial listen you’ll be forgiven for just appreciating a superlative slowie, however Amber’s aggressively authentic female perspective echoes empowerment anthems like You Can't Take It, and I’m A Good Woman by the aforementioned. Flip the disc and now you’ve got something so distinctly different, It’s Time For A Change hits with a punch of brass and positivity and follows through with an infectious dance-tempo. As soon as you fall into the groove, you’re hit with a funk cacophony that exactly fits the songs message of affirmative transformation. This release is as lyrically poignant as it is musically perfect and sums up why the Kimberlite team are so proud to be working with The Love Rights! Available for pre-order at: https://www.raretoones.com/ AND https://kimberliterecords.com/ Pre-orders to be shipped on or before the release date of 19th July 2019 Talk of The Town It's Time For a Change
