One half of Sydney’s Jep & Dep, Jessica has released her triumphant solo debut, a shimmering beautiful album that the Rolling Stone dubbed a “Masterclass of Ethereal Brilliance”. Rightly so, this is a gorgeous listen from start to finish, produced by partner Darren Cross. One of the highlight’s of 2020 and will be high in my end of year list. Equally beguiling is Brona McVittie’s Man in the Mountain, sublime folk from a unique artist who has a pristine voice. As well, stunning new singles from luscious baroque pop from The Apartments and Jello 64 and The Maes and Monique Clare.
