The best time of year is soon upon us; no not christmas, but the day when Alice Russell releases a new album. Her fourth album is being released digitally first then on CD later in December and on her own label Little Poppet (instead of the usual Tru Thoughts). I have yet to hear the full album (hint hint) but have managed to hear four tracks on the blogosphere. Her cover of Crazy is even better than the live acoustic version leaked last year but I have an exclusive track called "Got the Hunger". Ms Russell's voice just seems to get better and better with every release and it will only be a short amount of time before she gets the recognition she fully deserves. Check it out!

Well i've finally returned - and i really should try and improve my post rate! I'm going to post up my mix i made at xmas, which I never got round to posting tut tut...
It's been a busy few months, like 3 5000 word essays in for the same week, an exam and a presentation - all within the first three weeks of term! Now its the end of term and i still have work and now revision, and i also just started a part-time job -so crazy at the moment! But i will get round to a new mix over the weekend hopefully! And possibly one over easter when i'm back home with the decks... until then happy blogging and listening.
