Well, you'll know from previous posts that I'm just completely worked up about the release of the Santogold album and I have to say - to banish any skeptics - that the rest of the album is totally different to her main release, "L.E.S. Artistes". The rest is a wonderful combination of rock and hip-hop (a new genre of Hip-Rock anyone? No?), something that I am particularly eager to listen to in full.
Secondly, and third as well, come The Ting Tings and Cajun Dance Party. I think I will play all three albums to death in the coming weeks (well, as long as I manage to get my paws on them). Suddenly I have been overwhelmed with albums that are actually being released this year. Normally, I collect albums from the past... Maybe this is an indication that some of the music coming out this year is pretty brilliant. Enough to persuade me to buy it!
