Postcards (Wupadupa Music)

I first caught singer and multi-instrumentalist Nigel Bunner (aka Sugardrum) on BBC 6Music and loved what I heard, and, praise be, his debut album does not spare the good stuff. He’s one of those classic, finger-picking guitar types – think Nick Drake – and exudes a warmth that amps up the togs to fleecy levels. His palette is coloured by touches of electronics, cello, bass and some backing vocals, and his melodies have a shining-light quality to them that would illuminate any room.
