No complaints Core Album: Connan Mockasin - Caramel * Bonus Disc - 7.5/10 I received Mockasin's debut through the club. Polica - Shulamith - 8/10. I also received the debut via the club. Lily & Madeleine- 9/10. Excellent. One of the best debuts I've heard this year. December - not a clue. It would be weird if Toy are featured as the core album a second time round though.

Looks like September was a month for debut albums! Factory Floor - Self-titled + Bonus Disc 8/10 Money - The Shadow of Heaven - 8/10 London Grammar - If you Wait - 8/10 Very solid - I'm sure October's core cd is Darkside and November's is Connan Mockasin. Looking forward to both!

Can't complain about this month Core album is Satellites - 02 + Bonus cd. 8/10. An excellent followup to this guy's debut. A little bit more melodic but still grandiose. Houndstooth - Ride out the Dark - 9/10. Fantastic debut. Absolutely perfect. Alela Diane - About Farewell - 7.5. Back in 2007 Alela Diane's debut was the core album. This one isn't as good as the Pirate's Gospel but the last three songs are amazing. plus I received a Domino Records sampler! next month - Factory Floor????

Daughn Gibson - Me Moan + Bonus Disc - 8.5/10 what a great album! Melt Yourself Down - Self-titled - 9/10: Can't stop listening to this one Maps - Vicissitude + Bonus Disc - 7/10: I also received the Maps debut, this one is that strong but there are good tunes. Next month - I'm guessing Satellites
