Chequerboard “The Unfolding” (Lazybird)

Dazzling third album from John Lambert full of mesmerising guitar lines, dramatic strings and serene atmospherics. Album launch at the Little Museum of Dublin on September 27 and 28. “Today Is Beautiful, We Have Things To Do” from the album below

Austin Brown “Menage A Trois” (South 5)

Jumping and pumping throwback soul-funk smasher from Michael Jackson’s nephew.

Rudimental “Right Here (Hot Since 82 remix)” (Asylum)

Daley Padley transforms the Rudimental tune into a dark, edgy work awash with high tension and low basslines.

Johnny Cash “American III: Solitary Man” (American)

In memory of the Man In Black, a decade on from his death.

Riot Jazz Brass Band “Soozamaphone” (First Word)

Gleeful brass band skanking from Manchester.
