The 50 Best Albums of 2012

46. Michael Kiwanuka, Home Again

Label: Polydor
Released: March 12

Artists like Michael Kiwanuka seem to exist in another place and time. His proper debut, Home Again, could pass for something dug out of a crate of vinyl at your local record store. It's dusty and indebted to the finest artists of the '60s and '70s.

The British soul-man was clearly raised on all the staples of yesteryear, from Bill Withers to Van Morrison. While some might want to pass this off as retro-pandering, these's more to Home Again than a kid with a love for the greats. He's a talented songwriter with one hell of a voice. -Andrew Martin
