Alex Gopher, Alex Gopher

Giorgia says: ‘This album reminds me of driving along the palm-tree lined Hawaiian coast with the speakers turned up and the rooftop down in a super-stylish sports car. Absolute bliss!’

Berlin Calling, Paul Kalkbrenner

Giorgia says: ‘When I listen to Paul’s music, I want to grab an aperitif and lounge in a hammock on the nearest beach. It has a chilled-out vibe that is totally relaxing.’

Caustic Love, Paolo Nutini

Giorgia says: ‘Paulo Nutini has such a unique voice, and his soothing track ‘Sunny Side Up’ is the perfect sunset song to wind down to at the end of a glorious day.’

Homebrew, Neneh Cherry

Giorgia says: ‘This woman is a pop icon, and her new album is a pleasure to listen to. The presence of REM’s Michael Stipe on one of the songs makes it even more special.’

The K & D sessions, Kruder Dorfmeister

Giorgia says: ‘I listened to this a thousand times last summer when I visited my beloved holiday haunt on the magical island of Stromboli, off Sicily. It makes me dream of exotic locales.’

Marzo 1964, Getz/ Gilberto ft. Antonio Carlos Jobin

Giorgia says: ‘The smooth sounds of this melodic jazz duo will have you utterly entranced. Simply laze on a beach and drift away as ‘The Girl from Ipanema’ plays in your ears like a soft summer lullaby.’
