An abundance of goodness here, beginning with the great new Raphael Saadiq album, and a wonderful and unexpected return to form from The Beastie Boys.



Special recommendations, too, for Roll The Dice, Forma, Sparhawk/Carbonara and Cosmonauts, as well as Metronomy – not a band I’ve paid any attention to in the past, but “The English Riviera” is a nice record that feels destined this summer for the same kind of soundbed ubiquity enjoyed of late by Phoenix and The XX.

All that said, not everything on the list is quite so satisfying…
