It’s important in these dismal times to have something to look forward to and hearing good new music can make it worth getting out of bed in the morning. So I thought I’d do one of these posts because I’ve not done one in a while. Here’s a few albums that have recently floated my boat.
Marie Davidson is a Canadian artist known for electronic club music but her new album Renegade Breakdown takes a swerve into an eclectic mix of deadpan 80s synth-funk and French chanson. Tres bon!
Sad13 is the name Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz uses for her solo work. Her second release Haunted Painting is a terrific indie pop record chock full of sounds, ideas, and fun in a freewheeling way that reminds me of Caroline Rose’s Loser.
It’s ironic that in a year when none of us can go to nightclubs some of the best albums have been aimed at dancefloors. Dua Lipa and Jessie Ware have both put out album of the year contenders packed with throbbing and swishy beats, while Róisín Murphy has raised the bar with her magnificent new long player Róisín Machine. Just a pity that we can only dance in our living rooms at the moment.

Roisin’s album is a belter, first class dance music with some real depth.
The Jessie Ware album is quite astonishing – especially as I have not been a fan in the past.
But WOW, the Roísín Murphy album is just blissful.
Ms. Murphy helped get me through the summer with her series of sitting room videos for songs from both her back catalogue and her latest razor sharp release.
They’re all great but the Dua Lipa is still winning the dancefloor divas battle for me
The Roisin Murphy album is great, but it’s taken me ages just to learn all the words for the first minute of that song
