First released in 2000, Tommy Guerrero's beloved instrumental LP, A Little Bit Of Somethin', is back. What's more exciting is that the album has been remastered and pressed on 180g double vinyl—an upgrade from the original! Including 14 laid-back, "loose grooves" tracks, the record emits traces of various influences; listen to the og Bones Brigade member/multi-instrumentalist's distinct blend of Brazilian, Cuban, Mexican, soul, and jazz motifs, set over dusty, funky hip-hop-influenced beats. One word that comes to mind when listening to A Little Of Something' is "effortless," as there is an organic, personal feel to every cut on the album. And that might be the answer to why the LP has aged so well—definitely pick this up and play from beginning to end. Check out "Blue Masses," "Soul Miner," "Flux and Meter," and "100 Years."
