Rough Trade Album Club September 2009 Pack

Another strong month. It seems that this month's pack is quite ethnic:

The Very Best - Warm Heart of Africa + Bonus Mixtape - I would rate the album a 9/10 but the mixtape is a masterpiece and gets a full on 10/10

Taken By Trees - East of Eden - 9/10. A very beautiful album. Victoria Bergsman went to Pakistan and recorded this album there using traditional instruments.

Amanda Blank - I Love You - 8/10 Bitchfork (mistake intentional) gave this 2.0 - IGNORE. If you're a fan of Diplo/Switch/M.I.A./ Santigold and so on this album is for you. Favela funk meets hip house.

Well that's my next three weeks sorted. Africa Pakistan and Brazil. A global treat if there was one.
