New tunes...

Picked up a couple of new albums...

First off... we have Colour the small one by Sia. Got to know Sia's voice from her guest spots with Zero 7 and have to say I wish I'd picked this album up in 2004, when it was released. Its a collection of chilled alternative folk and downtempo electronica that I can really connect with. The third track - Breathe me - could be used in S*N*A*C... it has a really spiritual vibe about it. Fab!

I love my soul... and am a big fan of Bobby Womack ((interesting fact: Bobby Womack appeared on Janis Joplin's Pearl album)) and adore across 110th street for its grit and reality... as well as the awesome vocals and soulful backing.

Across 110th Street is the title of track from the soundtrack to the film of the same name... and its the tip of the iceberg. The instrumental tracks arranged and conducted by J.J.Johnstone are amazing... full of sound textures like wah-wah guitar, percussion, flutes and Fender Rhodes. Its a fab example of its genre... and great listening.

Check them out.
