    English singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas's album Blood was inspired by her Jamaican and Greek family heritage. Lyrically, the songs she wrote are almost all related to "the feeling of who you are and where you come from," she says. Musically, she took inspiration from Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. Dancehall/reggae producer Stephen McGregor joined in the making of Blood,as did a rich collection of others. Pre-orders include an instant download of the first single, "Unstoppable," which was produced by Adele/FKA twigs collaborator Paul Epworth and built upon an instrumental recording by Ninja Tunes trio The Invisible.

    Congolese seven-piece band Mbongwana Star's debut full-length album, From Kinshasa, a World Circuit release, features members of a new generation of Kinshasa musicians embodying the concept of “mbongwana,” or “change.” Along with Parisian producer Doctor L, the band has created a sound that embodies the “smashed-together” nature of the surroundings from which it was born—fusing traditional Congolese rhythms with European post-punk bass and busted electronics from recycled and reconstructed instruments miked and distorted in unexpected ways. Chicago Reader says the "album is a blast ... stunning." Pre-orders include an instant download of the album tracks "Malukayi (feat. Konono No.1)" and "Shégué."
