Sugawara & Claude Nine :
It’s nostalgia time for the RecommNeds…starting with this wonderful album that plays like
a soundtrack to a movie that
doesn’t exist. It’s a movie that might feature a lounge where James Bond and Austin Powers
get together to have a
cocktail and meet some lovely ladies after a long day of kicking bad-guy ass. On
Sugawara teams up with Claude Nine for an album full of
grooves: surfy guitar, bossa
nova organ and plenty of fun.

A Journey Too Far
Speaking of nostalgia, Benedic Lamdin put it in the name he releases his
under. Still, the word that
comes to mind with the newest Nostalgia 77 album, A Journey Too
”easy.” This music is
easy to listen to, easy to dig deep into, filled with easygoing grooves and a light touch.
Most of the tracks feature
German vocalist Josa Peit to add a nice dreamy quality of a time and place long forgotten.
This is mornings-with-your-
lover kind of stuff, when everything should be, well, easy.
