Private Space, the group’s third album, is a previously untapped vibe at the heart of The Indications. Pushing beyond the boundaries of the funk and soul on their previous releases, Private Space unlocks the door to a wider range of sounds and launches boldly into a world of synthy modern soul and disco beats dotted with strings. It’s an organic, timeless record that’s as fresh as clean kicks and familiar as your favorite well-worn LP. Developed after being apart for much of the year, Private Space is creatively explosive and delights in upending expectations. Its 10 tracks are both an escapist fantasy and a much-needed recentering after a tumultuous 2020. Throughout, The Indications highlight a collective resiliency – as well as the power of a good song to be a light in the darkness.

Durand Jones & The Indications have long provided the soulful soundtrack for such deep thoughts, both on stage and on your turntable. But as the world slowly resets from the chaos of the past year, Durand Jones & The Indications’ Private Space is arriving at just the right time.

Justified

Vinyl: $27.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

JUSTIFIED won the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year. "Cry Me a River" won for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. JUSTIFIED may represent Justin Timberlake's attempt to break out of the boy band mold and be taken seriously as a musician, but N Sync and, more specifically, ex-beau Britney Spears continue to serve as red flag reminders of these specific times. Ballads like "Never Again" and "Nothin' Else" bear the markings of classic break-up songs but, far from licking his wounds throughout the rest of this debut, Timberlake includes a number of cuts that celebrate being single including the Timbaland-produced cut "Right for Me" and equally the thumping "Rock Your Body." Other names this teen idol nabbed in a quest for credibility are red-hot producers the Neptunes and P. Diddy. In keeping an R&B element as the touchstone for this debut, Timberlake dishes out a number of surprisingly stellar songs including the very mellow, Stevie Wonder-flavored "Nothin' Else," Latin-soaked "Senorita," and infectious "Like I Love You." in delivering such a mature record, Justin Timberlake has created a springboard to bigger and better future projects.

Hieronymus Dros takes no responsibility for any cigarette habits formed, bank heists performed, turtle necks purchased, rooftop sniping acts of domestic terrorism, illegal gun fights, federal automobile pursuits or unprotected sexual encounters that may be perceived as being caused by the extensive play of the audio recordings on (but not limited to) "The Age Of Hieronymus" and all subsequently related materials. If you're gonna make a disclaimer about your album, that's the way it should be done. Australian producer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Allister, known as Dros in the studio, banded together with 15+ other like-minded soul brothers and sisters to create The Age of Hieronymus, a disgustingly good concoction of cosmic jazz fusion, soul funk and hip hop. A whopper of a double album at 17 tracks, this scorching debut could comfortably soundtrack your next block party barbecue, a bank heist, or a steamy evening in (and morning after) with your concubine.

Group member and songwriter Thomas Gatling says this about the song:"During slavery, songs were a form of communication for black people. These songs became known as hymns, or as our seasoned saints call them, the songs that brought us over. "Fight On" was inspired by a hymn called "Hold On (Just A Little While Longer)", a song used to encourage black people to not give up. Through that song, God gave me "Fight On." It was written to amplify the voices that for so long have fallen on deaf ears and to encourage and uplift people to continue the fight for equality and against white supremacy. Be empowered, my people. We are not thugs, we are innovators. We are intelligent and our feelings, hopes, dreams, and lives matter. Fight on, and everything's gonna be alright.
