New Soul Conquers The Loop Again With Miguel


Thanks to Frank Ocean’ enormous impact, the doors are now opened for a new generation of male soul crooners and it looks like one of the first taking advantage it’s going to be Miguel, an US vocalist whose career to date has been rather underappreciated. All that about to change after offering three excellent EPs of new material for free, paving the way for his second album ‘Kaleidoscope Dreams’. One of those EPs’ standout tracks, “Arch N Point” tops the loop this week.

The habitual avalanche of September releases has made its mark on this edition, with a record number of new entries; the highest of them is little known folk singer Angel Olsen. Other notable entries include new Thom Yorke-led supergroup Atoms For Peace; Nick Cave with one of the songs from the ‘Lawless’ soundtrack and Method Man also helping in another soundtrack, the directorial debut of Wu-pal RZA, ‘The Man With The Iron Fist’.
