A thoroughly charming neo-soul debut; an electronic album by a Northern Irish DJ duo; a quietly beautiful record about grief and climate change.
New Music 03/2021 – Jessie Ware, Rina Sawayama, Kelly Lee Owens
Classy disco; inventive pop hybrid that mixes R&B with metal; electronic soul food.
New Music 05/2020 – Caribou, Aldous Harding
A vibrant and playful return from one of my favourite electronic artists; a New Zealand folk singer with a penchant for weird.
New Music 01/2019 – Gwenno, Tracey Thorn, Kelly Lee Owens
The world’s only electronic psychedelic album sung entirely in Cornish; classy mature pop from the Everything But the Girl singer; warm and soothing techno-pop.
New Music 07/2018 – Fever Ray, Courtney Barnett
Second solo albums by two of my favourites, which mostly avoid the dreaded second album curse.
