Martyn Bennett: Grit

A reissue of a beautiful yet tragic album which, as now as on its original release, unites a nation and a world with its mixture of traditions, sounds and stories.

Ricardo Lemvo and Makina Loca: La Rumba SoYo

Veteran Congolose singer and band's seventh album, a gloriously international affair.

Jim Lauderdale: I'm a Song

A fine, fine record which could do with a little more pep down the stretch, or a slightly stronger editing hand.

T Sisters: Kindred Lines

A great package of fine instrumentation, interesting voices and very good songs.
