    so this track from the up-and-coming(?) something-of-a-critical-darling-from-last-year (love & hate was good but unnecessarily long) monsieur kiwanuka has recently received the video treatment and getting a new wind in its sails thanks to big little lies which uses it in its opening sequence. it sounds like a lot of stuff but there might just be something about it and i have decided to put it on rotation.



    what do you think? don't forget to comment and subscribe.

    I listened to the album last year and really loved it.

    His previous stuff seemed very uninteresting but this album is very good. I'm grateful for the radio edit of Cold Little Heart though, the album version could do with that extended intro being a separate track.

    I quite liked the first single (You Ain't The Problem) from his upcoming album but the new one is excellent:

    WOW at this new album. It sounds like an all-time classic and I’m only on my first few listens!

    Shades of Massive Attack, some parts sound like it was recorded underwater, generally heartbreaking throughout, and such a beautiful voice.

    There are shades of Cold Little Heart, but thankfully he decided to ignore the easy route of re-writing it 10 times over. I see the reviews have been RAVE too. Hard To Say Goodbye is my immediate standout, absolutely stunningly gorgeous.

    This album remains STUNNING!

    So strange that what I presume were the two lead singles (You Ain’t The Problem and Rollung) don’t sound like the rest of the album. I usually skip them completely and start at track 3.
