B-Music Lightning “Take Yourself to the City” (Micropolis)

A taster for Michael Smalle’s forthcoming debut album and further proof of the Galwayman’s dreamy pop smarts.

Adele “21” (XL)

The biggest, boldest, brashest and brightest pop-soul album of the season. No wonder people can’t stop buying it.
