Jessie Ware “Devotion” (PMR)

Splendid slo-mo, soulful works of art from the lady who could have been a football hack and should have won the Mercury Music Prize. Album streaming in full here, samples below.

Wave Machines “Ill Fit” (Neapolitan)

Finger-poppin’ good vibes from the Liverpool band’s forthcoming second album “Pollen”

Robert Plant “Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down” (Rounder)

The theme tune to Boss, the US TV series with Kelsey “Frasier” Grammar as the mayor of Chicago. Also stars Hannah Ware, Jessie’s sister.
