This really makes sense, particularly for labels Stones Throw where, at least in my experience, one artist on board tends to lead you to another.

The first volume was more soul/funk/jazz and this one is a bit more 70’s with some tropicalia and Brazilian vibes. And a double shot of Steely Dan just because.
