Mark my words, Michael Kiwanuka's new album, Love & Hate (2016, Interscope Records), is destined for a Grammy. This is a perfect soul album for modern tastes. Produced by Danger Mouse, Love & Hate has Motown hi-fi sensibilities, gutting guitar riffs, and tight string arrangements. This is an album that deserves listening from start to finish.
"It was a miserable machine, an inefficient machine, she thought, the human apparatus for painting or for feeling; it always broke down at the critical moment; heroically, one must force it on." - Virginia Woolf
