Michael Kiwanuka takes his time for his albums and you can hear that. Three years after “Love & Hate” his third LP “Kiwanuka” has now been released.
It’s no secret that Michael Kiwanuka has an unmistakable voice that gives you goose bumps not only when he sings ballads. Like on most of the songs of the previous album, Danger Mouse and Inflo provide the right background for this unique voice. I am an admirer of Danger Mouse since years, he always manages to create beautiful melodies and to surprise musically.
Again they succeed in creating music that can work on the radio and yet is unconventional. One of the soul highlights of the year for sure!
