Headphones at the Ready: November 2017 Vol.II 

Contrary to last week (see Headphones at the Ready: November 2017 Vol.I), a number of this week’s new releases actually had me smiling contentedly and tapping my feet to the beat on the train downtown, last Friday night. Here’s a quick heads up – re: a couple of the latest albums I really think you should check out.

Paloma Faith – The Architect (Deluxe)

 

Blue Lips – Tove Lo

Now, I’ve been a Paloma Faith fan ever since ‘Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful’ was released, back in 2009 (and my faith – no pun intended – in her has just been renewed by this latest offering) but Tove Lo had somehow managed to fly under my radar – until sometime in early 2017, when I chanced upon ‘Cool Girl’ on Google Play Music and looked her up. I like my pop a little dark sometimes so I appreciated the vibe I got from her – and when I saw this I just knew I had to check it out. Suffices to say, I wasn’t disappointed…

Also on the list of new releases this past week was a quirky (#surprisesurprise) offering from Sia – whom I love. ‘Everyday is Christmas’, as the name clearly suggests, is entirely seasonal but for those of you who love Christmas as much as I do (#swoon) and feel like putting a bit of an alternative spin on it, it might be just the ticket. Have a listen and see what you think…

And with that, it’s time to wrap things up for the week. If you do listen to any of the albums mentioned above, please drop me a line and let me know what you thought. Also, keep in mind that I love discovering new music, so do let me know if you’ve recently come across anything you consider worth a listen.
