Michael Kiwanuka – You Ain’t The Problem

It begins by sounding like Curtis Mayfield playing an Isley Brothers tune, and just gets better from there. “You Ain’t the Problem” is this this week’s Best In Show. It’s from the third album by Michael Kiwanuka, simply titled Kiwanuka. Here in the US, most folks will know him from the theme song to the HBO series, Big Little Lies. His new album will be available October 25. For more information visit michaelkiwanuka.com.

Harvest Ministers – Summer’s Here Again

In keeping with the season, this week’s Best In Show is from Dublin’s own Harvest Ministers! The latest single from the long running nom de plume of songwriter Will Merriman, “Summer’s Here Again” is (as he says) “…best enjoyed from the comfort of a rocking chair wearing a Kinks’ t-shirt or similar.” For more info please visit theharvestministers.bandcamp.com.

Japanese Breakfast – Head Over Heels
