There's been chuff all on the evil box in the corner again so I've taken to playing a lot of music when I've got in from work this week. So far I've mainly been listening to.

The Back Room ------ Editors

Nouvelle Vague ------ Nouvelle Vague
Nolita ------ Keren Ann
Kitty Jay ------ Seth Lakeman
Songs for Marmite ------ A Goldfish Compilation
Not The Tremblin' Kind ------ Laura Cantrell
Stories From the City ------ P.J Harvey
Hips and Makers ------ Kirsten Hersh
Ambulance Ltd ------ Ambulance Ltd
American IV... ------ Johnny Cash
Absent Friends ------ The Divine Comedy
A couple of Marmiteboy's absolute favourites in that lot. The Jeff Buckley album is one I come back to again and again. I love it. 'Lover You Should Have Come Over' is one of my all favourite tracks. The line 'My Kingdom For Kiss Upon Her Shoulder' says all you have to say about being in love with someone.
Kirsten Hersh's Hips and Makers is a wonderful album too. Kirsten is Bi Polar and the track 'The Letter', the lyrics of which are the words to a letter she wrote to her parents, is heartbreaking. The producer had to get her really pissed before she could record it. An album well worth checking out if you like singer songwriter type stuff. Dido it's not though so don't expect comfortable listening.
