Kamasi Washington
Heaven and Earth

Oh my God he is walking on water whilst carrying a saxophone. To some Kamasi Washington is the sort of person who could walk on water with his blend of psychedelic cosmic jazz and horn workouts. His first album 'The Epic' was a hell of a thing and 'Heaven & Earth' which is split into two bits ('Heaven'/'Earth') is bound to be ju...view item »

Kamasi Washington
Harmony of Difference

It’s rare perhaps, but on occasion, we’re a little late with the reviews, and we’re all caught up with everything now (I think), but here he finally is! The man, the myth, the colossus of cosmic jazz: Kamaaaaasssiiii (brass fanfare please) Wash-ing-ton! It’s been (roughly) two years and six months since the re-defining of...view item »

Jamie xx
John Talabot Remixes

Jamie xx gets remixed by big boss John Talabot, not once but twice. ‘Loud Places’ (featuring a vocal from Romy of The xx) gets both a high energy and a chill-out variation. Jamie has managed to avoid the dilemma of nearly running out of variations on...view item »

FKA Twigs
M3LL155X

Following on from the critical success of her debut album, LP 1, FKA Twigs goes all Aphex Twin with the title of her new EP, M3LL155X. Lyrically she deals with feminist and political issues. FKA Twigs has directed videos for four of the songs on the EP which are to be viewed as...view item »

FKA Twigs
EP1

Think back to 2012, when the remarkable FKA twigs made her debut release. You probably didn’t pick up EP 1 at the time because of it’s highly limited nature, but now you can grab it once more. The slinky four-track EP has been re-pressed to wax by the Young Turks label, and it sounds entirely high-grade. The...view item »

Sampha
Process

They tell me the Solange album is really good but whenever it plays all I hear is Mary J Blige. So maybe some of my credibility with the young people can be clawed back in the fact that I have championed Sampha a bit in the past and he appeared on 'A...view item »

The xx
I See You

I remember watching an interview with the XX just after they won the Mercury Prize where some foolish interviewer suggested that they beef up their sound for their second record. You could see the trio visibly recoil and thankfully on 'Co-Exist' they only subtly tweaked their sound rather than add the bells and knobs that actual knobs at record ...view item »

Koreless
TT / Love

Ah, Koreless, where have you been since Yugen? Playing with string quartets? Taking coke in sheds? That’s all well and good, but without some new music we’re all left stranded, trying and failing to guess which direction you’ll take next. TT / Love suddenly appears, and we realise you’re more or less the same Kor...view item »

Jamie xx
In Colour

Jamie Smith is a popular man. Through releasing a few 12 inchers and DJing anywhere post-XX success, he has the music media large and small in the palm of his smug little hands. This is presumably licence to do whatever he wants, including the appropriation of truly great pieces of music as the foundation for entire tracks, pirate radio nostalgi...view item »

SBTRKT
Wonder Where We Land

This is when I realise I am actually now a really old grumpy codger. I don't "get" the modern music. I hate the singing, the ever-shifting array of guest vocalists. The everything and the fucking kitchen sink attitude to genre hopping/blending. This CD could be by bloody anybody and everybody. It could be Alt-J. I don...view item »

FKA Twigs
LP 1

When I was picking up this CD of progressive electronic pop by FKA from Norman Towers, Clint explained to me that it was kind of like Grimes or Bjork. "I thought it sounded like Beyonce," contributed Phil. Nothing against Mrs Z but I'm relieved to report that I'm leaning much more towa...view item »

The xx
Coexist

Well well well. I knew I was right about these being something special like, but I never expected their post-modern take on the sensitive indie-soul of Everything But The Girl to be quite the world-beater it has been. Then again the vocalistic dynamic between the girl Romy and ...view item »

SBTRKT
SBTRKT

Zane Lowe-endorsed dubstep, that's what I like. Not heard this bass-felching monster before but I like the voodoo-tinged sleeves. It opens up well with some nice chinkling effects and a powerful all enveloping sound......then it goes all Jamie Woon. I don't understand this music. I don't like divas singing on records never mind some bloke who th...view item »

The xx
xx

Fucking obsessed with this album. True, bits are a bit samey, what with the ultra minimal stripped back style they employ, the harmonies are lush and the dinky guitar lines are so emotive, can't get these simple, smoky, mellow tunes out of my head. At last, a true marriage of soul & indie that doesn't make you balk at the idea. The sleeves ...view item »

Jack Penate
Tonight's Today

Jack Penate looks well fit on his new record sleeve. Gone are the colourful sleeves which fold out into tents or whatever and they've been replaced with black and white photos of Jack with stubble looking all sensitive and sensible. Well hunky... A bit like those Adele sleeves.. Hey you can see for youself and see if you'd want to bang him. He does...view item »

El Guincho
Alegranza

I really like this CD it has a lot of influences but overall it has a Caribbean/tropical/festival feeling which is something I haven't really heard before. The songs are mostly up beat and depending on the listener all that comes to mind is bright colours & excitement like a kaleidoscope on every listen. Try to give it a good listen to see i...view item »
