If ever a record label was aptly named, it’s WonderfulSound from London. I’ve been really impressed with their releases over the last couple of years, with excellent offerings from Nev Cottee, John Stammers, Colorama and Angelina – just to name a few. The new album from RW Hedges is on par and an absolute cracker. As well, the hypnotic Etran De LÁir, one of the best known and longest playing groups in Niger and Melbourne singer-songwriter Clio’s unleashes her stunning debut EP.
