New sounds to my ears this week:

John Grant.  Listen to Grey tickles black pleasure – fabulous album.  I missed out on the Czars, but remember “Queen of Denmark” coming out, but somehow never really gave it a listen.  The new album is brilliant, so I’ll be going back over the others over the next couple of days.

Joel Plaskett Emergency.  Discovered during a random click around on a Spotify playlist.  If the rest of the material lives up to the standard set by Fashionable People I will officially be a fan.
