LUMP

Off the road for a month so back to posting music that is worthy.

And what better way to begin than with the exquisite Laura Marling.

She has collaborated with the Mercury prize-winning producer Mike Lindsay and together they call themselves LUMP.

“Curse of the Contemporary” is their first offering.

Hatis Noit

I’m off to wander Japan, so today’s artist is avant-garde Hatis Noit.

She hails from Hokkaido but now lives in London.

Her name from Japanese folklore means the stem of a lotus flower, connecting the living world of the flower and the spirit world of the root.

On her new EP, Illogical Dance, she collaborated with electronic duo Matmos.

“Illogical Lullaby”

Shopping

The tongue in cheek irony of the quasi-political band Shopping is self-evident.

The 3rd album, The Official Body, from this British trio, has pure post-punk bite.

“Suddenly Gone”

“The Hype”

Lily Allen

Lily Allen’s 4th album No Shame is expected in June.

During the four years since Sheezus her marriage ended and she suffered an identity crisis, not relating to her musical choices.

Her are two from No Shame.

“Trigger Bang” (feat. Giggs) and the song “Three”, written from the point of view of a three-year old.

Missed her.

“Trigger Bang”

“Three”
