Music Diary 2012 - Day 3

09 May 2012

Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again (spotify link)

I only got hold of this album a short while ago, and I really like it. Since then I've heard quite a few people playing it so I wonder if it's going to become popular soon. Anyway, it's easy on the ears and very well put together. I've heard comparisons to Sam Cooke.

The Chapman Family - No More Tears (youtube)

Quick listen.

Errors - Have Some Faith In Magic (spotify link)

Ultimately pretty dull

Noah And The Whale - The First Days Of Spring (spotify link)

I can take or leave this band but this album is very stately and beautiful at times.

Field Music - Plumb

First listen...

Willis Earl Beal - Acousmatic Sorcery (spotify link)

This is "raw", which means that music critics will probably love it. I'm undecided as to whether it's actually any good but at least it's different.
