UN­DRESSED

Kim Ce­sar­ion

Rem­i­nis­cent of a young Usher, his voice is smooth, crisp, and he hits falset­tos so ef­fort­lessly. This al­bum has to be one of the best ones to drop this year. It’s a fresh piece of work that gives you good R&B with soul, funk, and a touch of pop. “I Love This Life” is in­fec­tious and fun, “Bad Thing” is sexy and slick, and “Brain Out” is cheeky. Ti­tle track “Un­dressed” is by far our favourite!

UL­TRAVI­O­LENCE

Lana Del Rey

If you’ve never been a fan of this lan­guid-voiced songbird, this al­bum will change your mind. Although she’s al­ways had a draggy, haunt­ing sound, she makes it sound so much more in­ter­est­ing on Ul­travi­o­lence that you can’t help but pay at­ten­tion. It’s beau­ti­ful and ro­man­tic yet vi­o­lent and danger­ous. In short, it’s just plain sexy. Ms Del Rey has done us all a solid with this al­bum. Tracks to look out for in­clude “Brook­lyn Baby”, “Cruel World”, and “Pretty When You Cry”.
