A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in.
Label: Virgin EMI
Released: 20th January 2017
Loyle Carner is a man of many talents. Quite why you’d bother with making music if you were able to cook up a storm is beyond any sensible, hungry person, but nobody is going to hold that against him – such is the quality of his debut album.
Home-grown, mixing spoken word and domesticated rap – there’s none of the grandiose, overblown largesse of Carner’s cross pond peers. That’s ‘Yesterday’s Gone’’s biggest strength. A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in. Christopher Jones
