1. Jose Gonzalez - Every Age
The Gothenburg-based melancholic is back with his long-awaited third solo album in February and this is a gorgeous taster.
2. Lo-Fi-Fnk - Can U Feel It?
This is in no rush to get anywhere fast. The perfect, chunky, trip-hoppy accompaniment to post-festitve blues.
3. Naomi Pilgrim - It's All good
Mapei and Seinabo Sey may have led the surge in Swedish soul but Ms Pilgrim is not far behind.
4. Wyclef Jean/Avicii - Divine Sorrow
Avicii’s cheesetastic tendencies are leavened by Wyclef Jean’s sublime vocals.
5. Ida La Fontaine - Anthem
Just a light acoustic taster ahead of the imminent full-fat big production version of this song.
6. Amason - Duvan
We tipped this band at the start of last year. They’re only just getting their act together now but it’s been worth the wait.
