For your enjoyment, 15 January brings a new album from the hardest-working man in show-business, Paul Carrack, and a fine new release from bewilderingly talented multi-instrumentalists Show of Hands. All Them Witches’s bluesy Southern swagger on Lightning at the Door is reminiscent of The Temperance Movement. Luxury Soul 2016 is a great way to introduce yourself to the best of new soul across three CDs, all for the price of one. Both John Moreland and Sam Outlaw grace us with two fine singer-songwriter albums firmly rooted in the Americana tradition. Baaba Maal’s latest is an exciting mix of Senalagese rhythms and electronic music. My album of the week is, however, Dylan LeBlanc’s Cautionary Tale, which resists pigeon-holing into a genre but deserves a listen from music lovers.
