Numero Group: By The Numbers

Misspellings and Dudes Yelling : Coming This January

Filed under: Eccentric Soul 45s, Lewis Connection, Medusa

1. Lewis Connection – Midwest funk with a loose clutch, brothers and St. Paul natives Pierre and Andre Lewis captured the “Minneapolis Sound” in its infancy (1979) with this engaging LP. Rumor has it, their budget was so tight, they could only afford 2 of the 3 Ns needed to spell their name (see above). Pitchfork thought it was worth mentioning, and is streaming “Higher” as we speak. 

2. Medusa – Screen printed on black velvet, it’s not impossible to imagine Beavis and Butthead head-banging to the infectious riff that accompanies this informative video.

3. Signs of the Time – “Hurts So Bad” b/w “I Think of You’

For fans of the Elements of Peace track off Omnibus, a pair of unreleased takes by producer Mel Turnage comprise the newest addition to our 45 series. Have a listen to Signs of the Time’s deep interpretation of “Hurts So Bad.”
