Basia Bulat

Are You In Love? (Secret City Records)

This Canadian artist has grown with each new release and she’s on top form with this, her fifth studio album, in which she has joined forces again with producer, and frontman with My Morning Jacket, Jim James (who also did the business on 2016’s ‘Good Advice’). Her voice has something of the Martha Wainwrights about it (a good thing) and her alt-folk-pop is pushed into some big, swirling, swelling places here to grandstanding effect.
