Nearly the end of June already? Not sure how that happened.
My gig of the month was a tie between Bright Eyes at Royal Albert Hall ('Poison Oak' was particularly goosebump inducing!) and Stevie Nicks in Hyde Park.
My album of the month was The Antlers. Probably my album of the year front-runner (only St Vincent and M83 on the release schedule currently likely to relegate it - but then I'm bound to be side-swiped).
July seems to be quiet-ish for releases I'm excited about - curious to spend some time with the Digitalism record. What else is out?
