Turns out I'm not listening to much new music, which hurts my ego somewhat:
Saturday's Gone - Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan
I refuse to stop listening to this album.
Lucky Number Nine - Mouldy Peaches
I never really noticed the Mouldy Peaches first time around - a major oversight on my part - but bandmoreagain has put paid to that. Thanks.
Fucking Boyfriend - The Bird and The Bee
At least this one's only about a year old but I was saddened to learn that what I thought was my exciting discovery is already the name of a club night in that London. And it's probably the sort of club I would hate.
What's Love Got to Do With It? - Tina Turner
My Tina love (nurtured by my early employment experiences in a call centre in Ipswich and their dubious hold-music choices) has undergone a resurgence of late, aided by the discovery that it is pretty much the only song I can deliver on Singstar without cringing.
American Boy - Estelle
To my mind this is the best pop song of the year so far. I wish I could find a better version of this Sam Sparrow cover.
Stung - Mr Fogg
I love this song so much I could cry. I write regular begging letters to his MySpace which seem to be getting somewhere - rumours of an album in August...
DVNO - Justice
Because everything Justice do is golden to me.
