We have picked out our favourite songs from the albums below. Check out our July Songs of the Month playlist.
Paolo Nutini | Atlantic Records
Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini transforms his sound on his fourth studio album. Although captivating, Last Night In The Bittersweet is far more gentle than we’re used to, with Nutini delivering his most intimate collection of songs yet. With themes of love and heartache, his latest record is both poignant and extremely soulful.
Beabadoobee | Dirty Hit
Following on from her debut album Fake It Flowers, grunge artist Beabadoobee returns for her second studio album. With a far more diverse and complex offering from the London based singer, Beatopia is predominantly indie rock, with some hints of R&B. Once again under the independent label Dirty Hit, Beabadoobee’s magnetic vocals make for an experimental and psychedelic record.
Steve Lacy | RCA Records
Ever-elusive musician Steve Lacy takes time out from cult funk group The Internet to release his anticipated second studio album. Lacy explains his latest record is about finding himself after a heartbreak and while producing the majority of the album himself, the Compton native brings a fun, vibrant and hypnotic sound to Gemini Rights that’s both hopeful and unique.
Lil Silva | Nowhere Music
Veteran UK funky artist Lil Silva brings us Yesterday Is Heavy, his spectacular debut album, almost a decade in the making. With an impressive list of featured artists, the multi skilled DJ and producer makes a real statement and an innovative step forward, with his meticulous selection of hip-hop beats, over his energetic, effortless flow.
Metric | Metric Music International
The smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea, Formentera is the inspiration for Metric’s pulsating eighth studio album. Showing no signs of slowing down, the Canadian rockers immediately grab your attention, delivering frantic, but extremely well crafted beats, one after the other, all the way to a satisfyingly blissful conclusion.
