I keeping saying this, but 2021 really is shaping up to be a good year for new music. Lots to enjoy here – and plenty of variety too, including the first fruits of the Jakob Bro/Arve Henriksen/Jorge Rossy collaboration, the soulful return of Valerie June, an unexpectedly brilliant hook up between Pino Palladino and Blake Mills, some cosmic pastoral goodness from Field Works and the VUisms of Whitney K. Plus the Coral, Teenage Fanclub, Femi Kuti and more.
