music i love that i'd like to share...

Feist / The Reminder - A little folksy compared to the 2005 album, 'Let it Die', and as an (self-claim) unconventional / art-junkie, I am attracted to the album's cover which I have to say would mislead people that this album is of funky dance music genre - check out their tour poster. Damn cool. Anywho, if 'One Evening' (from 'Let it Die') is a little chill out funk, then this latest offering is quite mysterious like a folklore. If I talk any sense there :p

Mutya Buena / Real Girl - Her first solo album since she left Sugababes (not the same no more). I always love her soulful voice and I think this is a first good effort. I love 'Real Girl' mainly cos she sampled the classic Lenny Kravitz's 'It ain't over till it's over' in it. I really hope she does well. And, by the way, I think when you are famous no matter how weird your name is, it will become cool, yes? Imagine, Muthu Singam, a hot fashion young designer from New York. LOL.

Groove Armada / Songboy Rock - Very different from their previous efforts. But, I like much cos it's quite retro.

Mark Ronson / Version - He received plenty of write-ups on local and international magazines recently mainly because he is currently the hot DJ/producer in the UK - his work includes the supercool & hugely popular Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black' and Lily Allen's 'Alright, Ok' . So, I got curious and went on to check out his CD (translate: download). Boy, was I impressed. It is very 70s, and I am somewhat reminded of the first Ocean 11's OST. Best track: "Valerie", "Oh My God" & "Stop Me".

Other's worth checking out: Cassandra Wilson's 'Thunderbird'
