I’ve been sitting on this for a week now, enjoying it all to myself. And I really have been enjoying it.

Hello all. I’ve been on holiday this week, so apologies about the lack of action of the website. This is just a quick one as I’m off again tomorrow for another week. It’s a tough life, this… Anyway, here are some songs I’ve been listening to over the last seven days or so.

Anyway, enjoy the songs and things will all be back to normal in a week or so.
First up is a song by Quantic, but that’s not why I’ve chosen it. For me it is all about the girl singing on this song, Alice Russell. She’s got an amazingly old sounding voice that sounds like it could be on a track from Motown in its heyday. It’s soft and sultry with a bit of smokeyness to it. As it is, the song itself is pretty damned good too. I’m also a big fan of the banjo in it.
