Let’s round ’em up.
A contender for best R&B album of the year. Daye sounds both classicist and modern, and it’s amazing that this is a debut.
Left Lane Cruiser – Shake And Bake
The cover looks like an old-school punk-pop record but this is actually down and dirty blues rock with some tasty slide guitar.
The Divine Comedy – Office Politics
Their first double album — a delightful look at modern English life through the medium of quirky, classic pop.
Junior Brother – Pull The Right Rope
You don’t often hear anyone that sounds like The Incredible String Band. Now you can!
