    label: Communion

    Few records make such an instant impression as Home Again, the debut album by Michael Kiwanuka. Immersing the listener in a sound that is both modern and at the same time as familiar as the classics, it manages to strike the balance between being contemporary and somehow utterly timeless. I just wanted to make a record that, when someone puts it on, it takes them to a certain place, says the 24-year-old north Londoner, and recent winner of the BBCs Sound of 2012 poll.
