We have picked out our favourite songs from the albums below. Check out our November Songs of the Month playlist.
Connie Constance | PIAS
English singer-songwriter Connie Constance follows up on her 2019 debut album English Rose with Miss Power. Constance is mesmerising as her gentle vocals manage to excite, regardless of subject matter, across quieter melodies and heavier punk anthems. The tone shifts wonderfully on her latest record, with her exciting disco sound seamlessly veering from indie to funk, electronic to pop.
First Aid Kit | Columbia
Swedish folk rockers Johanna and Klara Söderberg return for their fourth studio album. Recorded in their native Stockholm, with a more mature sound, the folk duo are noticeably more happy and assured on Palomino. Each song inspires happiness, optimism and hope, with their uplifting lyrics and divine melodies. The talented sisters have grown their sound, taking a real step forward in their evolution.
Nas | Mass Appeal
On his incredible sixteenth studio album, it’s more of the same from Queensbridge's finest, as Nas makes it seem so simple with his masterful storytelling. The sequel to his critically acclaimed King’s Disease I and II is even more creative and impactful. Produced by Hit-Boy, this modernised Nas seems to be able to do what many of his peers can’t - stay relevant. If this is the end of the trilogy, he saved the best for last.
Ezra Collective | Partisan Records
Jazz group the Ezra Collective masterfully combine on Where I’m Meant To Be, a thumping celebration of life. On their second studio album, their hypnotic beats and swagger are the perfect recipe for joy and positivity. With the integration of neo-soul, rap and Afrobeats, the British quintet are sure to light up dance floors everywhere.
Daniel Avery | Phantasy Sound
Taking inspiration from the likes of Deftones, Portishead, and Nick Cave, innovative music producer Daniel Avery pushes the boundary on Ultra Truth. The English electronic artist's intense sound demands your full attention on his latest record, which is well structured, engaging and reflective. An emotionally complex album with multiple layers, the roaring drums mix with phantom-like synths for the perfect balance.
