Channy Leaneagh, for The Talkhouse Music:
I enjoyed Jessie Ware's first album but found some of it by the numbers soul. Second album 'Tough Love' is very good indeed. Channy wouldn't be wrong of course.
Channy sings The Stone Roses. There are no words.
(To describe the way I feel, etc).
The War on Drugs album is pretty much variations of this song.
(Not a bad thing)
No work of art has given me more pleasure than the two seasons of Twin Peaks from the early 90s.
I watched every episode 'live', then several times over on video during the following week.
I bought all the books, the VHS, the DVD of the first season, the (Spanish only) DVD of the second season, the eventual DVD box set with all the features, and most recently, the bumper Blu-ray remasters (the first Blu-ray / DVD I've purchased in 6 years).
I don't know where to start in explaining the show's appeal, so I won't. It's just the best. At everything. It touches every human emotion. It's David Lynch's masterpiece.
A picture of the Black Lodge has been my last.fm avatar since day one, there are two Twin Peaks images in my Twitter profile. My obsession with Sherilyn Fenn is well into a third decade. A trip to the Snoqualmie Falls area is number one on my bucket list.
The new Twin Peaks was announced on the same day that the Juliana Hatfield Three confirmed they'd reformed.
A week on, and I'm still not coping very well with this news.
In 1993, Juliana Hatfield released her most commercially successful album - Become What You Are, under the band name 'The Juliana Hatfield Three'.
21 years on, that band are making their second album.
Anyone who has known me over the last 25 years will be aware that I consider this matter to be somewhat important.
I've just played the new album, Taiga.
Even on first listen, I'm calling it her finest moment yet.
Clearly you've got to enjoy every moment of a Letterman debut.
Love, love, love Lizzo's album.
Jonathan Mann writes and releases a song every day. He's up to number 2,110. He had some help with the writing on this one though.
He wrote the theme song for one of my favourite podcasts and has done a few other Apple related songs too. They're all ridiculously catchy, like this one from the summer:
Another stunning video.
As is now obligatory with releases on the peerless Memphis Industries label, there's some Justin Vernon vocals on this.
Haley's latest album has 9 songs, lasts just over half an hour, and is flawless.
Deluxe editions can do one. Albums with 10 or less tracks always win.
