Eska: Shades of Blue

Had an amazing moment the other day when I heard this on the radio and HAD to find out what it was.

This, Brothers, is Mercury nominee Eska, about whom I knew absolutely zilch. It really is worth checking out the whole album, it’s a peach. As we know from past neo-soul albums, they can get a bit tired and a bit like pastiche. This is as fresh as a daisy. I love that I can hear Prince AND Joni Mitchell in there, as well as the more obvious soul influences.
