Anderson Paak – Malibu review

Anderson Paak, Facebook, Nov 7, 2015 (960x540)Anderson Paak’s Malibu is incredible. This multi-disciplined singer, rapper, songwriter and producer has been living a breakout year, appearing on tracks by Schoolboy Q, Kaytranada, Snakehips and Mac Miller to name but a few. Malibu, with its flavoursome grooves and relatable hooks, is the type of album you’ll want to listen to from end-to-end, and shout about to all your friends.

AlunaGeorge – I Remember review

AlunaGeorge, press photo 2016 (1000x563)AlunaGeorge’s second album doesn’t truly take off until 14 minutes in, when the head-jerking, rhythmic slides of ‘Mean What I Mean’ reach your ears. I Remember is a break-up-and-put-yourself-back-together album. But, objectively, it’s hard to recommend this outpouring of mixed emotions and strained sounds over the electro-pop duo’s phenomenal debut, Body Music, whether you’re nursing a broken heart or well on the rebound.
