Seeing as it's horrid outside and there's a bank holiday ahead which probably means no-one will be around to do the usual last Sunday of the month bantering about the month just past, I thought perhaps we should get in a bit earlier.
My LP of the month was probably the ZOMBY album - really surprised by it, and been fitting in nicely with my obsessive listening to the SBTRKT and Metronomy records (they really are the sound of summer) and is a nice escape to the future from listening to St Vincent (pretty much the album of the year, isn't out 'til next month but you're in for a treat - got great interview answers from her too!) and Antlers album (Burst Apart sounded incredible at Summer Sundae!), which have been in my ears about 3 times a day, every day, for much of August.
