Some weeks ago, I was sitting on my couch surfing around MOG -- a music-subscription service like Spotify -- on my TV, when I happened upon a single called Home Again from a guy named Michael Kiwanuka. I fell for it instantly. But unlike so many quick-to-get records, the thrill hasn't faded.
I've enjoyed -- though not been enamored with -- the soul revival of the last few years, at least what comes out on record. And I've grown weary of the sweetness of this decade's singer-songwriters. Kiwanuka's mashup of acoustic jams and soul pumped some much-needed life into both genres.
"Home Again" is on Kiwanuka's debut LP of the same name, which will be release later this spring. But for now, you can hear the single after the jump. And, like I said, you must hear it right now.
