i was away for two weeks. (blog is rushed this week)
- whitest boy alive - dead end - also see kings of conveniance
- efterklang - modern drift - new album came out 22nd feb, 'magic chairs'
- broken bells - october - (its a live version. but not a bad one) as i said on the show, the merge of the shins lead vocalist, james mercer, and dangermouse, a producer of the likes of the gorillaz, knarles barkley, bring a real upbeat and unique collaberation of the two styles and techniques they individualy posess. its a great song and so is the album.
- canterbury - set your right - an unsigned band from berkshire - album available for freeee download
- netsky - memory lane (tee)
- fanfarlo - commets - currently supporting mumford and sons. very similar but fanfarlo also sound a little but like beirut?
- laura marling - devil spoke - pretty powerful, her new stuff is different to her old
- say anything - she wont follow you (for benny)
cant get enough of this

i've been pretty lousy recently with updating my show and its blog. i've been away in the white stuff, so the last two weeks show was none existant. i've also been very busy with uni.. each day is a merge of another and i'm not sure i can keep up!
so this week and up untill the 10th of march i am heavily campaigning with james hughes, and his giant media peach - fighting for creativity and enthusiasm. (multimedia editor, head of media executive for loughborough university) it'd be silly for anyone to say that media isn't important. and i genuinely believe that this is just his first step into the spotlight. he's going big places.
so if you're a loughborough student please check out his website! voting is 8th 9th and 10th
aside from that. musically wise, recently i've been listening a lot to broken bells, efterklang, frightened rabbit, sparklehorse, fanfarlo - of which i'll be playing monday!

sup yall, creation of the blog from last weeks show - i have been immersed in exams but i am nowwww free.
Monday didn't go as well as the previous week, i was tired and the studio failed me for the first 10 minutes (i probably should just take the blame rather than find things to blame)
showlist - here goes (click on the title and it goes to spotify (if the songs there) if not then yadddayadda)
Monsters of Folk - Baby Boomer - or http://monstersoffolk.com/ - i've gone on about this band for weeks, always been in love with connor oberst and his music, music which i've (personally) seen a lot with. dont forget about m. ward and zooey - she & him ! mike mogis (bright eyes) and jim james, who is also a delight, goes by yim yames? - he did a cover of george harrisons, my sweet lord which is beautiful (linked to spotify)
Yeasayar - Ambling Alp - this band first stormed my ears with 2080 and Sunrise a year or so back. the new album is out now? the video is worth watching its so weird in such a good way.
Laura Marling - Goodbye England (covered in snow) - i probably shoud've played this before christmas or at least when we had snow, ah. her new album is out the earlier part of this year so you mayaswell watch out for it - if its anything like her last it'll be beautiful.
Brand New – Noro - saw Brand New at wembely over the weekend, yeahhhhhh
Gorillaz - Stylo (feat. mos def and bobby womack) - the cartoon clan are back, new album 'plastic beach' is out soooooon
Rebelution – Feeling Alright - (for ben chandler !)
Washington - One Man band - a female vocalist from australia, shes been around for ages but i've only just come across her, clemantine is her last ep came out over a year ago.
Nick Drake - Black eyed dog - Nick Drake, i first heard of him when talking to my grandma - she used to date him back in the 40-50's - so cool. then i started listening to his music and i found it quite moving. i then found out that Heath ledger was obsessed with him and he actually died in the same way as nick drake, overdoes of anti-depressents. i've embedded the video that Ledger made before he died, which i find weirdly haunting.
FREE LOVEEEEEE - www.johncandyisnotdead.com - john candy, played them last week - heres his 2nd song up from the new album which is out soon. its a lovely song.

Here is a tracklist from tonights show, I'm short on time so I haven't gone into any depth. I've linked you to myspaces or last.fm 's or youtubes. in the coming weeks i'll add more to my blogs, like extra songs / places to download. but for now, this. for my bed i was using a band called Flutterspot - for those of you who might have been interested? ah! see you next week. x
She & Him - Why do you let me stay here (Volume One) - with the beautiful Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward - if youre into Folk and havent already checked out then its worth giving Monsters of Folk a listen, M. Ward alongside Yim Yames, Connor Oberst and Mike Mogis

Bishop Allen - Dimmer (Micheal Tapper, former member of We Are Scientists)
John Candy - the side project of the lovely Ant West, his solo album out the 8th of Feb. i've posted a link so keep on eye on that.
