The great Beninoise singer Angélique Kidjo here on the pulsating, head bobbing 'Dignity' featuring Nigerian singer Yemi Alade inspired by the youth-led movement to disband the corrupt Nigerian police unit the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. Kidjo says: “Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere. This song is against brutality, but it’s also about how we need to treat each other with dignity, treat nature with dignity, and treat ourselves with dignity. Because if we can’t see the dignity that Mother Nature gave to all of us, then how can we walk tall?”

Dans Dans have been around a while and sound very chilled here without being at all flakey. As a Marc Ribot fan the Belgians feed my yearning for that sound a bit as they do for the desert blues. 'Shell Star' is when the album really grooves and yet the journey guitarist Bert Dockx, adept at sheer escapology when he breaks loose, bass guitarist Fred ‘Lyenn’ Jacques and drummer Steven Cassiers develop towards this point of the record makes a lot of sense. Musicianship is high, the dinky tunes neatly cultivated and nurtured. On Unday. Dans Dans photo: Alex Schuurbiers. SG Out on 23 April
