AllMusic Review by

Released six months after the previous volume, Brownswood Bubblers Nine offers another diverse yet steady assortment of tracks selected by label boss Gilles Peterson. This time, only one selection comes directly from the DJ's Brownswood label -- "Layou," a pattering avant dub demo from Birmingham, England group Troumaca. Licensed highlights come from promising acts like Australian quartet Hiatus Kaiyote (organic, Questlove-approved contemporary soul), D.C.-based Diggs Duke (a soul-jazz multi-instrumentalist who has a hint of Donald Fagen in his magnetic voice), and U.K./U.S. throwback R&B duo Lady (consisting of veterans Nicole "Make It Hot" Wray and Terri Walker).
