Rough Trade Album of the Month Club - December 2013 Pack

Core album: Toy - Join the Dots + Bonus Disc - 8/10. Toy's debut was Album of the month in 2012. This is possibly the first time in the club's history that the same artist manged this. Whether an album is repeated or not doesn't bother me - as long as it's a good one and Join the Dots is a worthy follow up! 8/10 bEEdEEgEE - Sum One - pretty good kooky electro pop 8/10 Samantha Crain - Kid Face + Bonus Disc - pretty good folk. 8/10 Jan - Tom the Lion Feb - Temples March - Metronomy I hope I'm proved wrong
