Joy Division – The Best of Joy Division
I came across the video for Transmission whilst on Last.fm the other day and I’ve not been able to get it out of my head since. Should have got this a long time ago after watching Control.
Franz Ferdinand – Franz Ferdinand
It’s a fantastic debut album. I’ll have to play it back to back with their third, Tonight, which was released this year.
Hospital Mix Seven by Danny Byrd
As recently plugged by London Elektricity on the Hospital Podcast. Can’t go wrong for £4.
Shinichi Osawa – The One
Originally available on Japanese import only, I discovered Shinichi through the Crookers remix of Star Guitar. Now released in the UK with a bonus remix CD!
The Ting Tings – We Started Nothing
A brilliant pop album. Apparently made with nothing but a mac and garageband.
Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend
Full of melody, for some a little pretentious, but for me completely singalongable. Especially the The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance which I think is very Bank Robber-esque.
