Adorabubble Adele

Adele just keeps getting better and better. I was so struck by the gorgeous Hometown Glory single back in September I had fingers crossed that it wasn't a fluke. The latest, Chasing Pavements is a beefy, string-laden heart stopper and proof that the excellent debut wasn't a fluke. The album, 19, because that's how old she is, is due out in January. Looky here for more info.

She's already 'doing a Mika' and topping everyone's tip for 2008 lists so I make no apologies in sticking the Brixton singer/songwriter at the top of mine.

Chasing Pavements - Adele


From their 1993 E.P. Snow, here's today's Christmas song by the gorgeous Cocteau Twins. They manage to take a cheesy genre and uncheese it into something all their own. Liz Fraser and the boys were unique; they never did, and never have since, sounded like ANYONE else.

Thanks for the Adele - I saw her in Time Out and was wondering about her. Good stuff!
