Raphael Saadiq - The Way I See It Seemingly new hero of the so popular nu soul movement. Move over Amy, Eli and James, here is the best Motown singer that never was!
Snow Patrol - A Hundred Million Suns Recognizable, strong but catchy pop rock songs with sentimental singing. Recommended!
Chop Wood - Chop Wood Coparck singer locked up in a cabin for 3 weeks made this gloomy, atmospherical, synthy album. Free to download at his site
Lastly: I've got a record player! My parents gave me theirs together with 50 records of Tom Jones, Bob Marley and Anita Meyer. I love it.
