There has definitely been a kind of “back to basic” music breeze blowing for a while, and Michael Kiwanuka is like the core of the tornado, sweeping over the World with his classic soul sound, closest compared to the one of Bill Withers, Otis Redding and Van Morrison. This is absolutely timeless, honest, wonderful music and I’m so bummed I missed his show here in Oslo last week. But I know he’ll be around for a while.
