Written over a 14 month period in a time when Sharon Van Etten was often without a home, instead relying on the charity and comfort of friends floors. In what promises to be an album full of sacrifice and heartfelt emotion and beautiful arrangements, Tramp is already released and ready for purchase; this is In Line.
Also out this month is a not so Dodgy sounding release from Dodgy and Stand Upright In A Cool Place. This is the really soulful and melodic What Became Of You.
My next selection is taken from the follow up or as they call it in the US, the Sopmore album, from husband and Wife duo Tennis. What makes this release most exciting of all is Patrick Carney on production, the drummer behind the phenomenon that is the Black Keys, a band in my opinion that can do no wrong; see the Blacroc project as proof of this. Dreaming is taken from forthcoming Young and Old which was released on valentines day.
Finally to another album to which I am reaching high levels of excitement, like a school girl hearing One Direction are making a surprise appearance at her graduation dance. This is the truly beautiful Lafaye, taken from the School Of Seven Bells album Ghostory out on the 28th, pre order it now, this is wonderful.
