I want Galactic and Beyond

A post put me in a way to fall in love with Galactic and Big Freedia. It's made me hungry for more modern, and smart, hip-hop/jazz/funk/afro-beat/soul. You got any you are into right now?

This Galactic dovetails nicely with stuff I have like The Daktaris, Budos Band, Whitefield Brothers... but I am hungry for more of this stuff with, ya know, LYRICS. I know a lot about old R&B and soul but I never am exposed to new. I do a radio show of the old stuff but I would like to come up with two hours worth of more recent music, say the last five years. I really liked the Black Keys Blackroc, was intrigued by Janelle Monáe, and, of course, liked Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. I might delve deeper into sissy bounce, especially as there are a few posts to help me out.
