A Certain Ratio "Sextet" CD (Soul Jazz)
RealAudio A Certain Ratio "Knife Slits Water"
A Certain Ratio's second proper album is arguably the band's watershed release. "Sextet" shows ACR expanding Afro and Latin rhythm influences while incorporating more electronic textures into their dissonant, spacey post-punk-funk mix. An essential early-'80s classic.

Antena "Camino Del Sol" CD (Numero)
RealAudio Antena "Camino Del Sol"
Shamefully overlooked, the sparse electro-samba from this French ensemble seems to be born from the parallel universes of Jobim and the Young Marble Giants. Originally released on Les Disques Du Crepuscule, reissue includes B-sides and bonus tracks.
