I would say that all of the albums below contain at least some element of funk and soul, given this is Soul Donuts, but what binds these selections together is an element of summer breeze, sleazy encounters, prolonged trips, and strange vibes.

…adding a flare for the cinematic and pushing the psychedelia and cross-dressing further out, this NYC busker is here for all the madness.
Keep your eyes out for more cartoonishly hipster funky instrumental vibes from these LatinX goofballs, it’s gonna be good.
East LA soul rockers with a lovely twee-soul sound.
Some laid back surf pop vibes, like Gorillaz on sedatives and umbrella drinks. East LA in the house again.
Boogie Noir, the funky moniker often related to the group is a new one for me!
