Love & Hate, British folksinger Michael Kiwanuka‘s sophomore album, released July 15, has entered Billboard‘s Americana/Folk chart at No. 3. The singer-songwriter’s debut album of 2012, Home Again, was a set of mostly acoustic folk songs. Love & Hate finds Kiwanuka exploring more of an electric vibe, although the title track has him back to comfortably strumming an acoustic as hypnotic vocals, keyboards, and sustained electric lead guitar wail away all around him. Check it out. — Mark Kemp
