Next time you're about to make out with your girl or boy (or whatever it is you like to make out with), instead of throwing on a Barry White or Marvin Gaye best-of, reach for this new release, Juke Joint II, from the German duo Boozoo Bajou. A follow-up to Boozoo's more roots-oriented Juke Joint, part two features a selection that ranges from warm soul, like The Meters' Van Morrison-like ballad "Heartache," to Light of Saba's down-tempo dub, to their own hip hop track "Back Up" featuring MC Oh No. In all, it's a never-boring mix that manages to sidestep clichés and go well with brandy and scented candles. Pick it up from from Amazon.
