Every so often I will take a wander over to Metacritic to check out film, TV and music reviews, mainly for music as I like to see what is currently getting the raves and what is not.
Imagine my surprise when I saw that “Grey’s Anatomy” sound track contributor and my favorite twin sister recording act, Tegan and Sara, were getting raves for their new album ‘The Con’.
I decided I would have to listen to it on iTunes, and I liked what I heard. So when my lovely bf asked if I wanted a present I first answered “Yes please…can I have Siobhan Donaghy’s album ‘Ghosts’ please!!”.
Then I remembered M.I.A. had just released Kala so I changed my answer.
Then I remembered ‘The Con’ and realized that being mainly British acts, Siobhan and M.I.A. would be more readily available over here. So he ordered it for me, and I got it last night.
It has not stopped playing.
So I thought I would share it with you on my box
The tracks I have chosen are:
1) Knife Going In…..My current fav…it will not leave my head.
2) Call it Off…..The album closer and such a brilliant song at that
3) Superstar…..Something from a previous album ‘This Business of Art’ that I thought you may enjoy along with
4) My Number…also from that album and really shows the girls range and song writing skills.
Here is the first video off ‘The Con’ called “Back in Your Head”
