Minneapolis' Polica played SXSW in March. Urgent, original and genre defying, Polica are absolutely essential in 2012. Their debut album, Give You The Ghost was an XPN Featured Album of the Week earlier this year.
Michael Kiwanuka combines roots and soul with such old-school, retro-sounding verve. He's released three EPs in the last year alone, including one that so impressed Adele, she invited Kiwanuka to tour with her!
Stemming from Oklahoma, roots rocker JD McPherson just released his highly anticipated Rounder Records debut album. His true-blue rockabilly combined with the classic rock sound that will satisfy any purist, packs a punch that leaves audiences enchanted.

July, 2012 CD of the Month

There are some artists that just don’t act their age. And in the case of XPN Aritst To Watch Michael Kiwanuka, that's a good thing! The fact that this singer-songwriter is in his early 20’s will be the last thing to come to mind (if at all) when you make your way through his debut album Home Again. Kiwanuka is the latest in a wave of British soul and R&B singers to captivate audiences. And while connections to his peers like Adele exist, he paves his own path to our ears with the songs of Home Again.
