Building on Joey’s Christmas post, I thought I should put this into the pot of alternative Christmas tracks.
There is a lot of truth in this song; though it may not be best to play this for your family!
US Girls take on the big Xmas track. After featuring so highly in my 2020 top albums, I couldn’t resist sharing this one with the blog. This is the explicit version so maybe keep it off the turkey dinner playlist?
A lovely, pretty little thing from Reyna (and a timely reminder to re-watch ‘A Ghost Story’) hope you enjoy.
I first banged on about Nilufer Yanya back in 2017 when she released her 2nd EP Plant Feed. Last year she released her debut album ‘Miss Universe’ which I completely failed to pick for AOTM … and I am not sure why. In the past few weeks she’s release ‘Crash’ a massive new single and it’s prompted me to reintroduce her to you all.
She’s effortlessly cool. Ballsy. Writes a great tune and obviously surrounds herself with some talented friends.
What do you think?
This is the lead track from Miss Universe …
And here is Miss Universe, enjoy.
Monday morning stomp anyone?
Is this track lose to perfect, I vote yes!
This track is exceptional. One for brother Joseph!
I didn’t think that I’d see another Doves album. This is a bit of a gift. And what a gift. Ok, so it’s hardly going against the grain, but then if you’re good at doing something, what’s wrong with playing to that strength? Perhaps it isn’t all about experimentation for experimentation’s sake.
And while their early albums were superb, there’s something to love about gruff Jimi Goodwin. Plus, my god, the guitar playing on this album is AMAZING. The videos aren’t bad either. Guitars, remember them?
We don’t give enough props to Janelle Monae on here. We should. Her new single is pretty solid.
Still an absolute king.
