A return to familiar routes brings a fresh journey...Everything is circular, everything returns. Take Beth Orton: the English artist rose to fame through her stunning blend of pastoral folk and piercing electronics, a fusion of old and new, analogue and digital. Since then, she's taken to exploring rather more song-based climes, largely eschewing - alth […]
Classy Gallic scenes...Nouvelle Vague first caught the imagination with their inventive, bossa nova inspired renditions of post-punk classics.

Deeply English, deeply intelligent, and deeply affecting...Man & The Echo seem to take each step with remarkable precision. The past 18 months have brought a steady series of singles, each stamped with a biting sense of intelligence.

Shooting for the transcendant, but sadly misses...‘Sing To The Moon’, Laura Mvula’s debut LP, had some great touches, but was swamped by overzealous production.
