Devil’s Spoke – Laura Marling
Laura Marling may not have had a string of Number One hits, but it’s her understated success with critics and music lovers which suggests her hauntingly beautiful music will be around for decades to come. I have only listened to Devil’s Spoke, the first release from I Speak Because I Can, a handful of times but it is permanently bouncing around in my mind – I love its energy and the video is stunning!
Rainbowarriors – CocoRosie
If you look hard you can find a
Rainbow trail it’s deep inside ya
Fear not you’re a rainbowarrior
Golden light on everything gleaming
Rainbow love awaits us
With hearts of love and tears
Quirky background sounds and feelgood lyrics to Rainbowarriors make this one of my faves!
I ♥ Pop
Lately, the first time I hear a pop song I lament its shittiness and wonder how on earth they manage to sell any copies at all. I had this thought with both Shakira’s She Wolf and Cheryl Cole’s Three Words after my first listen.
But something overtakes my sanity and all of a sudden I find myself pressing the repeat button, loving them in their three minutes’ worth of cheese-tastic pop!
