Looking for a present for March 10? Borrow some inspiration from the Time Out Music team, and the albums their mums are getting…
I Am Kloot ‘Let It All In’
‘My mum’s into depressing ’60s balladeers like Leonard Cohen and Ralph McTell. “Let It All in” is a bit more up-to-date, but when it comes to being a miserable genius, Kloot lyricist John Bramwell’s up there with the best of them.’ James Manning

Olly Murs ‘Right Place Right Time’
‘Hat-obsessed luvverly lad Olly Murs wrapped up in a bow would be my mum’s ideal gift. Failing that, I’m sure the PG delights of his latest Maroon 5-and-Jamiroquai-inspired pop album will still have Mrs Darke singing along.’ Liz Darke

Emeli Sandé ‘Live at the Royal Albert Hall’
‘She fed me, bathed me, changed my nappies and trained me to use a potty. The least I can do for my lovely mum is get her this elegant bit of live soul-pop from her favourite cockatoo-haired singer, Emeli Sandé.’ Oliver Keens

Blood Red Shoes ‘Water’ EP
‘Mama Goldstein will love this four-track taster of Brighton’s indie-punk duo Blood Red Shoes. After all, she’s already professed her love for previous single “In Time to Voices”, or as she refers to it, “the one that’s catchy”.’ Danielle Goldstein
Buy ‘Water‘ now.
Laura Mvula ‘Sing to the Moon’
‘This hotly tipped Brummie singer’s got more soul than Sandé. Plus, her debut album is indulgent and uplifting – basically, music to soak in the tub to. Bundle this Nina Simone-alike record with a bath bomb and that’s job done.’ Jonny Ensall
