Lauren signs off for Christmas with a live session from Michael Kiwanuka. The London singer songwriter appeared out of nowhere earlier this year with the release of his debut EP Tell Me A Tale, which drew comparisons with Terry Callier and Bill Withers.

After supporting Adele on her European tour, Michael is being heavily tipped for greatness with the release of his debut album next year and a place on the shortlist for the BBC's Sound of 2012. It promises to be a special session, with Michael performing his own material as well as some Christmas covers.

Plus, Lauren offers up the final exclusive download in our week long MPFree Festive Giveaway and we bring you a very special festive Memory Tapes.
