Carner, Loyle - Yesterdays Gone Artist Loyle Carner
Title Yesterday's Gone [Mercury Music Prize Nominee 2017]
Label AMF
A gradual crescendo of spirit-lifting gospel introduces "Yesterday’s Gone", perfectly fitting for the debut longplayer from the young master of ’confessional hip hop’. Indeed as Ben Coyle-Larner spits sombre bars over "The Isle Of Arran"s soulful grooves, the South Londoner touches on family, bereavement and religion, all with the same intricate flow and honest delivery. It’s a sound that’s at odds with the current slew of mumbling, stumbling, gangtas who dominate the charts and mixtapes, celebrating gold, diamonds and designer footwear as they breeze through meme-references and barely decipherable hooks. Rather, Loyle Carner takes his cues from Mos Def, Talib Kweli and London’s own Roots Manuva, delivering conscious rhymes over gentle, jazzy grooves. Intimate, intricate and tough to imitate, Loyle Carner is entirely relatable as he treats us to everyday tales of family, food, romance and regret, laying his growing pains bare across a dozen tracks and a couple of well placed skits. If the recent ATCQ LP’s put you in the mood for some proper hip hop, then this is your new jam.

Childish Gambino - Awaken, My Love! Artist Childish Gambino
Title Awaken, My Love! [CD out now // LP due 10/11/17]
Label Glassnote
Childish Gambino is (and isn’t) Donald Glover, a recording artist, writer, actor, director, producer and comic who was gifted his alias by an online Wu Tang-Clan name-generator. Originally hailing from Stone Mountain, Georgia - his Mum was a daycare provider and his Dad a postal worker, where TV was banned in the house - Glover first entered the spotlight as a member of sketch-troupe Derrick Comedy, via a stint working on The Daily Show and the invitation to join the ’30 Rock’ writing staff by Tina Fey before he’d even graduated from NYU. A succession of mini-albums and mixtapes surrounded all of this, parallel to acting roles ranging from The Muppets to NBC’s cult hit comedy ’Community’.  It was 2011’s debut album ’Camp’ - his first since signing to Glassnote Records - which marked a breakthrough for Childish Gambino, whose music explores everything from identity, race, and technology to hip-hop culture, class, and family.

Title Chwalfa [#DyddMiwsigCymru]
Label
Allan o’r tywyllwch trist a gwlyb daw albym cyntaf COFI BACH a TEW SHADY allan ar label Boobytrap. Ar ol byrstio ar y sin gyda’r anthem Triwch Hi Ar dwy flynedd yn ol, rhyddhau record 12modfedd ar label Ciwdod, recordio sesiwn C2 ar bbc Radio Cymru, ymddangos ar Bandit a Radio 1 a gigio ym mhob tafarn a clwb yng Nghymru, mae CHWALFA yma i’n hacub ni.

This is the debut album from Cofi Bach a Tew Shady - two rappers from north Wales who’v emade their mark with their gritty, funny, realistic and sample-tastic hip hop. It’s honest, raw and lively - as well as the samples there’s original intruments here too. But it’s the rapping that makes it - nobody raps about what these two rap about, or how they rap it either. It features Mr Phormula and Nine Tonne (from Diwygiad) and a slew of other guests and musicians and producers. Chwalfa is here - it’ll blow you away...
