Album: Beardyman, I Done a Album (Sunday Best)

Brighton beatboxer Beardyman faces the same issue facing any other tongue-twister – namely how to translate an impressive live spectacle on to a small shiny disc.

Darren Foreman arguably achieves this by "cheating". I Done a Album features "real" instruments and studio trickery. If you aren't going to mimic all the noises, a purist might ask, why mimic any? No matter: with its facsimiles of everything from Afrobeat to drum & bass, Russian folk to heavy rock, the end result is a lot of fun.
