Happy New Year!
Here's our Quality Street selection for the week. Let us know you favourites.....
Feist - 'How Come You Never Go There' (2011)I had a number of CD's on my "Santa List", and Feist's Metals was one of them. I remember seeing this performance on Jools Holland Later a few months back and being impressed. I've got a few of her earlier albums but there always seemed there was 'another' album to get - you know what I mean? So while you nurse your hangover, put this on, relax and finish off the chocolates & sweets that no one else eats.
The Maccabees - 'Pelican' (2012)
The Maccabees have truly trumpeted the arrival of 2012 with this single released today! A great start to the musical year! This is going to be such an instant hit with lots of people. Its catchy and has good positive energy. Perfect to listen to whilst you go for your first jog as part of your all new healthy regime! I remember when I was a teenager enjoying a few pre-legal drinks in my favourite pub The Rifleman in Hounslow(now a Lebanese restaurant), I used to watch bands every weekend. I saw a band a few times whose guitarist happened to be my school matron's son who were also called The Maccabees. I can't find any evidence it's the same group, but at least I'm not lying when I say I drank in the same pub as them! Enough talking about drinking though, I'm on the waggon!
Joker - The Vision (Let Me Breathe) feat Jesse Ware & Freddie Gibbs
I was going through some tracks of the year lists and I came across this pudding of a song. I'm hooked, on it's fantastic bassline and that drill sound, all smoothed over by Jessie Ware's amazing voice. Real Dubstep delight. DJ/producer, Joker has been hailed as one of the UK's leading lights in British Electronica, responsible for creating some unique and innovative sounds. It's no surprise then, that he comes from Bristol, adding to a long list of some the UK's finest dance acts. As a result, Joker's debut album, 'The Vision', will find a permanent residence on my stereo for the near future, the bass guaranteed to annoy the neighbours.

The Black Keys - 'Sister' (2011)
I have just been listening to the Black Keys new album El Camino and this is the first one to get me. I always look forward to a new Keys album, I love their hard driving sound, this however has elements of a dance beat. It will definitely be on my party playlist this Xmas, I may even get up and 'bop' watch me go. I really enjoyed the album and I believe repeated plays will deliver rich rewards. Definately recommended.
