Hey Hey,

Been listening to a lot of new music recently and I thought I'd take the time to share some of it with you!

Noah and the Whale
- happy-go-lucky nu-folk stylings from this Twickenham-based band. Highlights include '5 years time' which you in the UK may well have heard (as it's everywhere), others include '2 bodies 1 heart' a slightly twee but very sweet love song and 'You can call me Al' a nice cover of the Paul Simon classic.

Girl Talk - crazy mash-up attention-deficit insanity. Latest album is available on a Radiohead-style pay what you want system. Check it out here.

Flobots - Handlebars (DJ Shadow remix) - currently very popular on the fantastic Hype Machine, this remix of Flobots' Handlebars is very hard to resist with a more pronounced beat and slightly more...fully-formed and threatening feel to it.

Finally, Sondre Lerche (official site with more tunes here). Great Norwegian singer-songwriter, with great voice and great tunes. Became aware of him as the composer of the 'Dan in Real Life' soundtrack, the end title track being 'My Hands Are Shaking' which I'm currently very much addicted to. By turns slightly folky, by turns a touch more contemporary jazzy. I love it.

Right. Better go back to endlessly applying for jobs now...
