Lucinda Williams “Lucinda Williams” (Thirty Tigers)

Reissued a quarter-of-a-century on, Williams’ debut still sounds immense, a moving mélange of country, rock and roots.

August Alsina “Testimony” (Def Jam)

New album from the New Orleans r’n’b kingpin is chockablock with great guest turns and even greater vocal and lyrical pirouettes from the main man.

The Wild Tchoupitoulas “The Wild Tchoupitoulas” (Mango)

We love them Indians.


Klingande “Jubel” (Universal)

Deep house wonderment with a sax solo to soundtrack your dreams

The Gloaming “The Gloaming” (Real World)

An album which gets better and bolder with every listen
