Michael Kiwanuka is the spaciest of contemporary retro-soul crooners, conjuring airy, cavernous expanses through which his sharp, smoky baritone can burn slowly. The London singer-songwriter’s latest album, last year’s Danger Mouse-produced Kiwanuka, peaks with “Living in Denial,” a rueful ballad whose fuzzy guitar hook lulls him into a mystic calm. With Sammy Brue.
