LITTLE ROY

Lithium ****

As recently featured on TV's Later With Jools, Roy is one of the few reggae originals still able to command respect from a contemporary rock audience. The charmed invention on offer here shows his radical reworking of a Nirvana favourite which enhances rather than compromises his proud Jamaican legacy.

In the groove

EMELI SAND[ETH]

Daddy ****

The Scottish singer-songwriter is set to be the star of 2012. She's written songs for Susan Boyle and Cheryl Cole, starred on singles by Chipmunk and Professor Green, and has even been seen singing on my local streets. The second taster from next February's debut album, Daddy benefits from a Massive Attack groove.

STOOSHE

Betty Woz Gone ***

The girl group who don't play by the rulebook move into the mainstream with a Little Britain-style scenario that depicts wanton behaviour from the underclass. It's bound to ruffle political feathers, especially in its unexpurgated version, but their sharp exchanges brim with spice and character.
