  20. I'm loving the ne Elbow album "Build A Rocket, Boys"

    Current favorite is High Ideals.

    Guy Garvey's vocals are amazing. They have grown a LOT since their first album, but they're all fantastic. Lippy Kids is really great, too.

  27. I would honestly second the Danger Mouse/Daniele Luppi album "Rome" mentioned above.

    But I've been digging on the new album by Portland's Starf*cker. It's a nice blend of dancy-pop-rock... My fav track is "Death as a Fetish" and it's a total summer jam.

  45. "The End" by Basement Jaxx for the "Attack the Block" original soundtrack.

    http://www.weareblahblahblah.com/2011/05/basement-jaxx-end-attack-block.html

    Nine Inch Nails, Daft Punk, and Chemical Brothers all doing movie scores now.. I guess it's not much of a departure from Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo) and Clint Mansell (Pop WIll Eat Itself) doing soundtracks but it does seem like a trend nowadays.

  57. "Days / This Time Tomorrow" by Ray Davies with Mumford & Sons. Excellent tune off of Davies' recent collaboration album "See My Friends" and PERFECT for Mumford & Sons.

    I am currently obsessed with "Second Song" by TV On The Radio.

    Other tunes are:
    "Rox In the Box" by the Decemberists
    "Arise, Watch" by Buffalo Tom
    "I Don't Regret" by Thomas Wynn & The Believers.

  80. Hey John,

    I was lucky enough to catch Chad Valley (real name Hugo Manuel!) at a small gig in Glasgow a couple of months ago. I was photographing the gig for a local magazine and I was blown away by his stuff.

    You can download his debut EP from iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/chad-valley-ep/id400802164) and he has some new stuff coming out soon. It's got a brilliant summery, shimmering electro sound. Stand out track for me is 'Up and Down'. Enjoy!

    Ash.

  81. I've recently stumbled upon Xiu Xiu (about 10 years too late to be considered cool), but I am loving them.

    Their latest album is "Dear God, I Hate Myself" and it is spot on (Warning: Do not watch the video for the actual song "Dear God, I Hate Myself;" the song is great, but the video is fairly disgusting).
