You don't get another Aretha Franklin. Rest in peace.

"Fear & Celebration" - Blood Wine Or Honey
Latin-infused dance music from Hong Kong. Obviously.
"Highrise" - H E X
Atmospheric, sinister, off-kilter electro from Geneva.
"Skyline" - Captain Süün
Dirgy Bristolian (Bristolite?) psychsurf.
"Short Court Style" - Natalie Prass
Glittering perfect pop that harks back to a simpler time. (March).
"Cigarette Lighter" - Mellah
Timely, angular pop deployment from Souff Lahndan's Mellah.
"Plastic Hamburgers" - Fantastic Negrito
Good old fashioned blues rock, done good. Ticks all the boxes.
"Tell Me" - Mesadorm
This has been out as a single since late last year, but somehow the agorithms missed it until the album rolled round. Sparse, joyous, dramatic, electronica-y (and occasionally very slightly Björk-ïsh-ësque).
