(re) Introducing Nilufer Yanya

I first banged on about Nilufer Yanya back in 2017 when she released her 2nd EP Plant Feed. Last year she released her debut album ‘Miss Universe’ which I completely failed to pick for AOTM … and I am not sure why. In the past few weeks she’s release ‘Crash’ a massive new single and it’s prompted me to reintroduce her to you all.

She’s effortlessly cool. Ballsy. Writes a great tune and obviously surrounds herself with some talented friends.

What do you think?

This is the lead track from Miss Universe …

And here is Miss Universe, enjoy.

Welcome back, Doves

Prisoners. Peak Doves.

I didn’t think that I’d see another Doves album. This is a bit of a gift. And what a gift. Ok, so it’s hardly going against the grain, but then if you’re good at doing something, what’s wrong with playing to that strength? Perhaps it isn’t all about experimentation for experimentation’s sake.

And while their early albums were superb, there’s something to love about gruff Jimi Goodwin. Plus, my god, the guitar playing on this album is AMAZING. The videos aren’t bad either. Guitars, remember them?
