michael kiwanuka I'm Getting Ready / Lasan (numbered 7", £4.95)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 BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll.
