Foals “My Number” (Transgressive)

A tune which gets bolder, bigger and brighter every time you hear it.

John Grant “Pale Green Ghosts” (Bella Union)

A thumping highlight from the Other Voices’ run at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall last weekend.

Arthur Russell “This Is How We Walk On the Moon” (Point)

Beautiful widescreen innovation from 1994’s “Another Thought” album.

Laura Mvula “Sing to the Moon” (RCA Victor)

One of the finest albums of ’13 so far as Mvula and her band put their best soul and pop sides out. Another Other Voices’ London star turn.

Dana Falconberry “Leelanau” (Antenna Farm)

Dashing orchestral folk and warm-hearted charming sounds on the Austin performer’s second album.
