Jamie Woon – Making Time (PMR)
Why you should listen: This album slaps. Jamie Woon breaks away from his “post-dubstep” crowd affiliation on this soulful, warm follow-up to 2011’s Mirrorwriting.
It might not be for you if… You find this sort of modern soul a little too slick.
What we said: “Tracks emerge out of a soulful, primordial murk, with every note and lyric sounding honed, terse and meticulously crafted,” wrote Lanre Bakare in the Guardian. Killian Fox in the Observer gave the album three stars, and said it “moves with economy and purpose”.
Jamie’s album is out and led by first single Sharpness. Check out Sharpness live from Konk Studios above, pretty amazing.
