Michael Kiwanuka Love & Hate Full of timeless, heart felt, bluesy-soul that has been a 'cross-shop' fave. A magical release show in Kingston cemented our love for this album. - This is our #1 album from 2016! Second studio album from the London modern rootsy soul musician Michael Kiwanuka. Crucially, Kiwanuka has experimented with his sound rather than churning out more of the earthy, purer tracks that helped him break through. This explains why upcoming second album Love & Hate - produced by Danger Mouse and Inflo no less - has taken so long to reach us, but with tinges of gospel and Pink Floyd-esque psychedelia adding edge to his impassioned and untainted vocals, ignoring any pressure to rush was savvy.

Michael Kiwanuka / Communion Records Home Again EP The follow up to the critically acclaimed "Tell Me A Tale" and "I’m Getting Ready" EPs brings another session of retro-tinged soul from the incredible Michael Kiwanuka, produced by Paul Butler of The Bees. "Home Again" combines Kiwanuka's assured soulful vocals with a subtle folk-tinted backing track of organ, acosustic guitar, rimshot drum pattern and rising strings. A sublime track to see us through the dark days of winter. This EP also includes the short-but-sweet "Now I'm Seeing" and heartfelt "They Say I'm Doing Just Fine", with its nod to the Band's "I Shall Be Released'. Kiwanuka is a singer and songwriter with such a genuine raw talent that this early acclaim is only natural. His headline gigs have all sold-out, he’s toured both the UK and Europe with Adele, and already received many offers from well-established, acclaimed artists to work with him on new material.
