Here's a couple duly funky numbers that I never would have known existed if it wasn't for aimless meandering. The first one is Roy Porter who (I'm guessing) is a jazz dude I've never heard of. It's "Party Time," an apt title for one as funky as it is. That's from Clumsy & Shy, a blog by one Marjorie Owens that is pretty damn cool in it's simplicity. She posts about five or six songs every week or so, and there's always something I've never heard before that I really dig. No bio information or background info, which is fine (we all know how to do web searches at this point). The other song is "Cold Duck (On Ice)" another fine jam, this one by Cold Duck, again, an outfit I'm clueless about. It's from Oliver Wang's Soul Sides, a blog that takes a different tack, a little scholarly you might say. Wang knows his stuff, as evidenced by his writings being on liner notes and in magazines all over the place. His site usually features soul, funk, and hip hop, but he dips into Latin music and reggae from time to time as well. Bookmark both of these sites if you like to hear consistently good stuff (without meandering aimlessly).
