New year, new feature: ALBUM OF THE WEEK. I don’t think any radio show has ever done this before.
This all came about from discussions on Another Place On The Internet, where people were bemoaning the lack of quality albums in 2010. I would agree with this but I don’t know if it’s because I just wasn’t searching any out, so I’m going to force myself to listen to AT LEAST 52 NEW ALBUMS this year to find out.
The first one is a very easy choice indeed.
Been looking forward to this one for a while. Avoided the single, Living Is So Easy, and played Stunde Null, Mongk II and the less-excitingly-named Cleaning Out The Rooms instead. It’s out on 10 January.
