  • Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - Soul of a Woman
    • 16-bit FLAC
    • Reduced
    Though packed with the sad emotional punch of Jones knowing this would be her last record (the singer passed away in 2016 following two bouts of pancreatic cancer), there is a certain joie de vivre about the self-eulogising Soul of a Woman. Indeed, to record this goodbye album Jones came off her medication, feeling that it drained her of the energy that had remained a consistency throughout her body of work. The result is a fiery, rich vivacity, with bluesy, gospel undertones nodding to her strong religious belief, shuffling percussion, the swinging warmth of the Dap-Kings (who famously featured on releases from Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson), all topped with her unfaltering, powerful vocals. For fans of classic soul, dreamy doo-wop and old-school R&B, this is a must.
  • Sia - Everyday Is Christmas
    • 16-bit FLAC
    • Reduced
    If any contemporary popstar could pull off a spangly, sugary-sweet Christmas album with original songs, it was always going to be Sia. The eight-time Grammy nominee's follow-up to This Is Acting finds her paired up with Adele-writer Greg Kurstin to serve up a sometimes-silly seasonal special of jaunty alternatives to the overplayed classics. These are sing-song, nursery rhyme-esque lyrics that stick in your head like candy canes to your teeth, as well as more ballad-like tracks with pianos and vocals as delicate as snowflakes melting on the ground. Whether you’re warming up by the fireside, getting merry on a festive pub crawl, or frantically online shopping for the perfect gift, Sia’s got your soundtrack sorted with this fun and schmaltzy holiday special.
