Snoh Aalegra has the right idea. Her Don’t Explain is a ‘mini-album’, but it still clocks in with (er) nine tracks. Still, that phrase makes it all less daunting and the consistent quality all the more surprising – if this is the international gal holding back, Lord knows what she has in store for a proper LP. Tracks like Home are perfectly-pitched slices of contemporary soul, while In Your River keeps a toe in classic waters. Elsewhere, the title track wraps itself in gorgeous understated strings, adding a cinematic quality to a project well worth your time. Check it out below.
