I'm sorry it's been a while

university open days etc........

Well, where oh where do I start?

I saw Jack Penate on the 13th June, he was amazing, I think I'm a little bit in love...


Also, I've recently bought his album and it's excellent, stand out tracks are: both the singles, Let's all die and Give yourself away

I've also bought Regina Spektor's new album, entitled 'Far' which I've already mentioned. It's brilliant, there's a nice mix of uplifting songs and darker songs such as 'laughing with.' The woman's a genius!

See her performance of Glastonbury from this weekend here: Artists

Dimbelby and Capper- writes good pop music, here's a link to her myspace:

Lianne La Havas- She's Paloma Faith's backing singer,she has a really beautiful voice and writes lovely, slightly jazzy songs, here's her myspace-

I'm also listening to a lot of The Big Pink, their new single, 'Stop the world' is out on monday. Their music is really beautiful and hazy. I'm listening to the XX a lot as well, thier music is also beautiful and their supporting Florence and the machine on her UK september tour so I'm looking forward to seeing them then. Their
song Star's is absolutley gorgeous, it melted my heart on the first listen of it.

Well, that's all for now, I'll try and write on here again asap :)

a little update on what I'm loving right now...

First of all, this:

I've loved Paloma for a while now, like a year possibly? Can't believe I haven't menioned her yet, she's brilliant! Simply brilliant!
I'm loving her new single and I'm really pleased that she's finally getting some exposure!

The second band which I want to mention are 'Magistrates.' They supported La Roux on the radar tour which she's just done and their first single (it was out a couple of weeks ago) 'Heartbreak' is an absolute tune. They're quite electropop, check them out!

The next band are hotly tipped my Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens for big things, they're called Everything Everything and their new single Photoshop handsome is wonderfully quirky, check it out here:

Another band which I heard whilst listening to Zane was 'The Phenomenal Handclap band. It's impossible not to sing and dance along to their new single 15 to 20! They've got a distinctive CSS influence

Also has anyone heard the new Rumble Strips song? Amazing, is it not? I love it dearly.

I'm also listening to 'Rivals' by Theatrical girl, it's a really hauntingly catchy
electro pop song, listen to it here:

And the final band which I'm going to mention is 'Dear Reader,' they're very different to everything that I've mentioned in this blog so far. They're from Johannesburg and their music's really, really sweet. check it out here:

Well, that's all for now, have a great week,
