OK guys - thought it might be good to post links to some of the best tracks of 2006...
First up, one of the albums I bought in the last few days is Amy Winehouse's Back To Black. It truly is worth hearing, and so different from the first album in 2003. You can go to Fingertips to download Rehab, but do yourself a favour and buy the album. It's already proving very pleasantly addictive...more 60's/70's classic soul than the jazzier sound of her debut...
Next up, over at Pitchfork they have The Rapture's Get Myself Into It here.
Though there hasn't been anything like the sheer amount of hysteria as there was when Echoes came out a couple of years back, new album Pieces of the people we love is still worth a place on your Turntable/iPod/CD player.
The wonderful SubPop is always worth a look...especially as the media page
has music from CSS and The Shins (cannot wait for new Shins album). I know I have posted links to these several times but when they are as good as this...
Finally Insound can provide mp3s for The Gossip and The Scanners, amongst others.
As always, if you like what you hear, please support the artist involved, by going to Amazon or any record shop and buying their music!
As of a couple of hours ago, I am now on holiday for the next few weeks. Hopefully I will have a bit more time to devote t0 the blog... : )
Merry Christmas to all my readers
