In this second episode of our prestigious four-part series (we got that idea from Masterpiece Theatre), "new" or at least "newish" music is the focus. Four albums from the best of the 2010's that seem to promise ambition and adventure and, for the most part, deliver. The journey may get rocky at times, but brace yourselves as we head for the hinterlands. Pop matters ranges from Harry Nilsson to Umberto and, let's face it, no one's home on that range.
