Banda Uniao Black
Brazilian music has really got a lot of shine lately with the Baile Funk thing hitting pretty hard. Thank Common Folk Records for putting out this much awaited return to form for Uniao Black, one of the dopest funk bands to ever come out of Brazil. The production is raw as hell on this and they don't appear to have lost a step whatsoever at all. If you're a huge fan of the material they did for Mercury back when, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find this stuff is on par with all those albums and at times even better somehow or another. Highlights include "Everything's A Winner" and "Been So Long" amongst others. One listen and you'll realize this is classic caliber material.
