A very good month!!! Core album: Sunflower bean - Human Ceremony + Bonus cd. 8.5/10. I've been eagerly waiting this debut and it does not disappoint! jangle-pop with a hint of Spiritualized gospel style harmonies. The rest: Diiv - Is the is are 7/10. This took a while to sink in as it is over an hour and spread over 17 tracks but a lot of the songs did click. There is some filler though. Tindersticks - The Waiting Room + Bonus DVD. 9/10. Excellent! great songs all around. A surefire album in my personal top 10. March: Unloved, Tiga?? ( I think it will be Unloved) April: Black Mountain??Suuns?? (I think Black Mountain May: No clue yet. June: Minor Victories?? Palace Winter?? Max Jury?? (I think it's Max Jury)

Quite a multicultural month - good way to start the year. Core Album Hinds - Leave me Alone + Bonus CD 8.5 Very good! Catchy indie tunes with a DIY feel. Bill Baird - Earth into Aether + Bonus CD - 6 I probably listened to this one the most but I found it difficult to get into. It's 80 minutes long and varies in musical style. As always by the end of the year this rating could change. Baaba Maal - The Traveller - 8.5 . I enjoyed this one. Now and then the club sends me music from Africa and I always find it a treat. I spent a lot of time walking listening to this album. February - Sunflower Bean (very excited about this) March - Unloved ?? Tiga??? April - Black Mountain???
