Album Haiku Review | Michael Kiwanuka “Home Again”
Rating | 4/5
Song’s I Can’t Take Off Repeat | “Getting Ready,” “I’ll Get Along,” & “Home Again.”
Adheres To Folk Roots
Funky-Like Soulful Stylings
Great Sing-Along Tunes
“Home Again” has a vintage soulful sound. Kiwanuka implements funky rhythm stylings into his music, similar to classic soul genre from the late 1960s and 70s. However the album is unique in that it is both soulful but also adheres to folk roots, heard most evidently in the track “Getting Ready.” The combination of flute, trumpets and Rhodes Piano (a vintage model of an electric keyboard) make up a retro tune in “I’ll Get Along.” This is my rainy day music, smooth and peaceful feel throughout the album.
