Jam of the Week: Michael Kiwanuka

Artist: Michael Kiwanuka

Album: Love & Hate

Genre: Singer-Songwriter (Modern)

Date: 2016

Sound: A sprawling and soulful sophomore release

Cool Stuff: His debut album was a folksy gem that may have been the first ever from a guy that wasn’t a hipster. Yet on his second release, he ditched the flute and acoustic guitars, hooked up with Danger Mouse, and created one of the best records of the year. From the powerful “Black Man in a White World” to the sprawling 10 minute “Cold Little Heart,” this album is an ode to the Soul greats and therefore a must-listen.
