This week I bought:
Santogold-Santogold-I've really enjoyed this album. She's a professional song writer for a number of well known 'artists' and this personal album shows off her many different styles. L.E.S Artistes and Lights Out are two of my favourite tracks but most of the album, with the exception of the execrable Unstoppable, is pretty great. Santogold is also a really good lyricist so try listening to what she's singing as well...
Elbow-The Seldom Seen Kid. I had Elbow's other 3 studio albums 'til i-Tunes auto-synced my ipod and deleted the lot. Bugger. The new album is really good. Mancs at their best.
Emmy the Great-My Bad EP. Cutesy folk guitar stuff. Much better than I make it sound. I really like it. Hope she releases a full album soon.
Coldplay-Viva la Vida. Frigging awful on first listen but it's starting to really grow on me. Not as girly pop as much as their other stuff. This is a good thing.
