Laura Mvula’s powerful and nuanced Sing to the Moon was a remarkable album made even more remarkable by the fact that it was her debut. Her second album doesn’t manage the all-out excellence of her first time, but it still a superb album in its own right that shouldn’t be missed.
Ah, at last. The sun is peaking out more and more, and the summer tunes are springing up like wild (flowers?). Tunes such as this brand-new single from Louisa Rose Allen, aka Foxes. Her debut album, Glorious, was one of my top 20 favourites from 2014, and it’s a welcome surprise to see her returning so soon.
