Self-re­leased When not up to their ox­ters work­ing with other acts, Lim­er­ick’s DeLorean Suite have fol­lowed their very sin­gu­lar house star for some time with a range of re­leases for var­i­ous for­eign la­bels. For their de­but al­bum, Jen­nifer McMa­hon, Tony Roche and Gra­ham Con­way re­cruited some heavy­weight play­ers in the shape of Chuck Rainey (Michael Jack­son, Steely Dan), Di­vin­ity Roxx and Kat Rodriguez (Bey­oncé, Jay-Z, Angie Stone). What this trio have added to the al­ready soul­ful, lush sound are lay­ers of dy­nam­ics and con­fi­dence. DeLorean Suite know their way around sleek house con­tours, and the al­bum sees them em­bel­lish­ing their sound with sweet tex­tures, smart turns and in­fec­tious, deep hooks. Deep Love and By Your Side are par­tic­u­larly strik­ing, while McMa­hon’s vo­cals work their magic again and again through­out the al­bum. face­book.com/ de­lore­an­suite

Side

Deep Love, By Your Clas­si­cal Nom­i­nated by the In­ter­na­tional Film Mu­sic Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion for best orig­i­nal score for a fan­tasy film, best film mu­sic com­po­si­tion and best orig­i­nal score of the year, Cloud Atlas is a bold and ex­cit­ing new score. It’s the trio’s best yet – even bet­ter than Run Lola Run and Per­fume. Com­bin­ing gor­geous melodies, spare or­ches­tra­tion and dy­namic elec­tron­ica, Tyker, Klimek and Heil in­ject each of their cues with so much ur­gent drama, taut sus­pense, driv­ing ac­tion and soar­ing ro­mance that each func­tions as full and com­plete com­po­si­tions, sub­vert­ing and trans­form­ing scor­ing con­ven­tions with glee­ful aban­don. Tyk­wer also wrote and di­rected Cloud Atlas with the Wa­chowski sib­lings. cloudat­las.warner­bros.com
