"San Diego's own The Sure Fire Soul Ensemble is back with their sophomore LP on Colemine Records! Cinematic soul is the order of the day from this west coast group. Covering a lot of soulful territory here: deep funk, soul jazz, breakbeats, and more! Housed in a heavyweight, tip-on, gatefold LP. Includes download card as well."
"Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones, is bringing his raw energy to Colemine Records. Making their self titled debut, Durand Jones & The Indications pair soaring vocal work with dusty drums, slinking guitars and screaming organs resulting in a blend of deep soul and heavy funk.
With a stellar background in gospel, Jones got his start in the church, singing in the choir of his hometown in rural Louisiana. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington— a process which brings you the gritty sounds available on Ohio-based Colemine Records. Sure to satisfy fans of Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Aloe Blacc, and Leon Bridges. "
"J-Zone and Pablo Martin are The Du-Rites!
“Can you dig it? If so, get a plate of neckbones, beans and rice and put on your Old Spice. The Du-Rites are here to pour some fried fish grease on your kale salad. They’ll outfunk you so bad you’ll give up the funk and start making ballads. Rollin with soul like a 1979 Cadillac when you step on the gas. Groovin’ so hard they’ll knock the boogie man on his ass.”
