If Words Were Flowers
Curtis Harding | Anti-
With jazz and gospel influences, the seductive third studio album from Curtis Harding is complex and powerful. The multi-instrumentalist’s "slop 'n' soul" style lays the foundation on ‘If Words Were Flowers’, as Harding’s positivity shines through.
Flying Dream 1
Elbow | Polydor
Elbow’s ninth album ‘Flying Dream 1’ was inspired by letters between the band during lockdown and recorded in an empty Theatre Royal in Brighton. With spellbinding piano tones, acoustic guitar and the distinctive melody of Garvey, this experimental record is delightful.
Makthaverskan | Run For Cover
‘För Allting’ (‘forever’ in English), is the fourth album from Makthaverskan. Maja Milner’s eerily haunting vocals connect with soft guitars and drums beautifully, creating a fascinating cinematic feel on the Swedish post-punk group’s most experimental record yet.
Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women
Melanie Charles | Verve
Melanie Charles' incredible debut album is a powerful statement on what solidarity with Black women can look like. Charles’ magnificent renditions of songs from soul/jazz greats Sarah Vaughan, Marlena Shaw, Betty Carter, Dinah Washington and Ella Fitzgerald are simply stunning.
Parcels | Because Music
With an enthralling array of sounds, Parcel’s lengthy ‘Day/Night’ is an ambitious step forward. Based in Berlin, the Australian electropop band’s unique vision sees them yoyo between bouncy basslines and moodier piano ballads on their captivating second album.
