New Tunes :: Friday (belatedly)
I am a huge fan of Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet and consider his latest solo album :: "There is love in you" :: my kind of glitchy folktronic exuberance. His sound is all encompassing, layered and deeply engaging... it sucks you in and treats you nice. A very rewarding album.

The xx make some very pleasant indie rock and their album :: "xx" :: is simply wonderful. The interplay of the two vocalists over the sparse guitar and keyboard-orientated soundscapes is refreshing. More delicate than minimal... making beautiful an appropriate term to describe this album.
