Welsh singer-songwriter Ali Meredith-Lacey aka Novo Amor came up in the post-’Skinny Love’ boom of the early 2010s. While his voice has plenty of the Bon Iver’s about it, his music has maintained an earthier feeling than the Kid A-ish tangents that Justin Vernon has gone off on recently. His latest record Birthplace anchors spare vocals in a pretty contemporary folk style that also has a little Sigur Ros about it. Ali’s clearly quite the environmentalist - these LPs are made from recycled vinyl, and the video for the eponymous first single depicts a diver floating through a devastated ocean reef. Can’t knock him for trying. Out via AllPoints (James Vincent McMorrow, Ciaran Lavery).
