Number 8 2011 - Deaf Havana - Fools and Worthless Liars

8 Deaf Havana – Fools and Worthless Liars

These is not my normal cup of tea at all (not that I drink tea). Heard the single "I am a bore mostly" on Radio One (not that I listen to Radio One). I was hooked but the Kurt Cobain and Morrissey lyric and bought the LP. It is great. If I was 20 years younger this would be the soundtrack to my life. The lyrics have a gritty edge to them a mixture of self loathing, boredom and regret.

This is great version of the single.

Number Nine 2011 - SBTRKT

Number Nine 2011


The debut LP from Londoner Aaron Jermone SBTRKT is a masterpiece of modern electronic soul and dance music. Paced like the perfect DJ set this debut is full of promise. A bright new dawn for UK electronica.

Number Ten 2011 - Tom Waits

Number 10 2011

Tom Waits – Bad As Me

Great to have Tom Waits back with a LP that mixed parts of his post Swordfish output with aspects of his early work. Full of hard won wisdom, melancholy, melody and bile.This track New Years Eve sounds like the prefect companion piece to the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl's Fairy tale of New York.
