The 4th Uncut New Music Playlist Of 2020

Apologies for what feels like a massive delay since the last Playlist; crazy deadlines plus, you know, real world...

In these dark times, everybody’s trying to keep our spirits up by telling us that the world is still a beautiful place. Well, it bloody well isn’t. Nevertheless, full marks to Holly Lerski for trying her charming best. Having reverted to her real name after two fine albums as Angelou, she’s come up with a record of gorgeous, jangling, sunshine melodies on which she even manages to sound cheerful while singing titles such as “Everyone’s Lonely” and “In The Dark”. For would-be ostriches everywhere.
