The best of March

I'm a bit late with my review of March, but I've been busy over the weekend, and yesterday was Mrs. Growl's birthday. During the day's activities, I spotted the above in Berkley Square. A sight to warm the heart among the wealthy excess of Mayfair.

Anyway, back to the music...

Album of the Month

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones

Funny that I didn't pay them much attention the last time round (apart from Maps, along with everyone else), but I can't get enough of this album.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Turn Into

Songs of the Month (in no particular order)

1. The Knife - Marble House

A song that manages to be both glacial and beautifully warm. And it reminds me of the Cocteau Twins.

2. Gnarls Barkley - Crazy

OK, every teenager in the land will have this on a ringtone soon. But that doesn't mean it's not good.

3. Massive Attack - Live With Me

A truly impressive comeback.

4. Lucky Soul - Show Me Love

I've been on about this before. Just gorgeous pop-soul from a hugely promising band.

5. Two Gallants - Las Cruces Jail

I've belatedly just caught up with this band, but recently I've been well into What The Toll Tells. This was the first Gallants song I heard, and it's still my pick...

cool, all of these are great!

Two Gallants' album is AMAZING, not a bad song in sight.

Massive attack are outrageously massive in this track
