I bought Daughter‘s album, If You Leave, this week because I’d heard a few of the songs on KEXP and liked them all. I’ve listened to it four or five times now, and I like it more every time I listen to it.
The song I’ve heard most often on the radio isn’t on the album. It’s their brilliant cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”. If you haven’t heard it yet, you need to listen to it now.

Here’s a track from KT Tunstall‘s new album, Invisible Empire/Crescent Moon. I’ve not really listened to her before, but I took a chance and bought it based on excellent reviews in Mojo and Uncut. I like it.
Valerie June‘s album, Pushin’ Against a Stone, was released earlier this year in Europe and has been getting a lot of attention in the music press. It will be released in the US on August 13th.
