Looks like a big month ahead, with new albums from Bjork (love the cover!) and Tori Amos (hate the cover!). I’ve also picked up the new album ‘Contact’ from Thirteen Senses, whose debut album ‘The Invitation’ was pretty damn good and underappreciated. So far I think it’s great.
Rufus Wainwright also has a new album out in May, as do the Manic Street Preachers. If you like that sort of thing. I can’t stop thinking about these album covers. They don’t make them like they used to. Rufus’ looks like there’s some bad photoshopping going on there, although I’m not certain. And the Manics’ 2 fat women after a hen night, well. That’s just a common sight in England, isn’t it.
But really the whole point of this post was to mention and recommend Kate Wax. There are 2 albums in the Dark Heat Collection series, and both are available on eMusic.com. CDs are kinda rare, but if you can find any in your local HMV, be sure to try them out. She does a swirly, atmospheric sort of vocal mumblelectronica.
