Record of the Week is Marika Hackman'sAny Human Friend. Brilliantly human, it's a very open record with lots of directness and it is full of sexuality. The tone is all glimmering pop bangers, some quite maudlin, some explosive in their hooks, but all of it with a dark energy that really grabs you. Produced with high wizard David Wrench, there is a tautness to the album that is both tantalising and addictive. Really good this.
