Friday 14 May 2010
For some reason, Jamie Lidell has opted to renege on the developments of 2008's Jim – most notably those regarding killer tunes – and revert to the glitchy, stripped-down electro-soul of his earlier Multiply.

Their follow-up to the splendid 100 Days, 100 Nights finds Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings deftly employing the Sixties soul grammar which made them such a key element of Amy Winehouse's Back To Black.
Wednesday 28 April 2010
Singer Amy Winehouse nipped out of hospital to perform on stage alongside her budding chart star father Mitch last night.
Sunday 11 April 2010
The best retro-soul band in the world gets back to top form with a sassy collection of 1960s-style songs. (Think Back to Black with added authenticity.)
Sunday 31 January 2010
A strange but enjoyable five-disc survey of the byways of the career of soul's mighty Love Walrus.
Friday 25 September 2009
The ancients may have believed that art was all about truth and beauty; these days, as Paloma Faith recognises from her previous stints as burlesque performer, it's more about interesting lies.
Tuesday 22 September 2009
Amy Winehouse is to release her 13-year-old goddaughter's album on her own record label.
Sunday 02 August 2009
An excusable marketing exercise in which live performances from the Woodstock stage are paired with the studio album that matches them most closely. Santana, Joplin, Johnny Winter and Jefferson Airplane get the treatment. In the case of Sly, it's the splendiferous Stand! plus the 50-minute set which got a nation of soggy hippies on the good foot, a boisterous call-and-response throwdown which lacks the subtlety of the studio work but is nevertheless wiggy to the max. Sing a simple song indeed. Nice packaging.

Tuesday 16 June 2009
Amy Winehouse is constantly in denial and needs to be rescued, her mother said.
Sunday 31 May 2009
The follow-up to Nutini's 2006 debut finds Ethan (Kings of Leon) Johns gamely trying to make production sense of a record that ranges from ska to soul via country and ragtime. Adventurous, but this 22-year-old does possess a voice that conveys a maturity beyond his years, even if it's lost at times due to lack of musical continuity. "Come Up Easy" is an Otis Redding-like highlight, while "10/10", a punchy ska number, teleports you to a place closer to the Caribbean than Nutini's home town of Paisley.
Friday 22 May 2009
Amy Winehouse has cancelled her British comeback gig, following reports of ill health.
