This week's feature album comes from vertiable supergroup Menahan Street Band with the beat-forward cinematic sounds of The Exciting Sounds of Menahan Street Band

Their unique brand of instrumental soul has not only been the foundation for some of modern hip-hop's most successful beats, it has also become the perennial soundtrack and vibe-generator for countless parties, art shows and restaurants throughout NYC and abroad.

While this album carries the aesthetic torch that MSB has skillfully woven into the tapestry of their DNA, it also delves deeper into the experimental, exotic sounds that fill many of the coveted Sound Library and Soundtrack LPs of the late sixties and early seventies - an amalgamation of moog synths, electric pianos, drum machines, and a bevy of analog instrumentation that ebb and flow in lush swells of Morriconian grandeur.
