Congratulations to strawberryquicksand for being so quick on the uptake.
Title: Too Close
Artist: Alex Clare
Album: The Lateness Of The Hour
Let the base hit you and go with it.
Artist: Alicia Keys
My favourite Alicia Keys track.
Title: Roll It Gal
Artist: Alison Hinds
Album: Soca Queen
A dancehall favourite – and great for doing housework to.
Artist: Alison Krauss & Union Station
Album: Lonely Runs Both Ways
Crystal-clear vocals over a beautiful melody. And possibly the best definition of the travelling bug I’ve come across.
Artist: ∆ (pronounced Alt-J)
Album: An Awesome Wave
I was recently introduced to this band by my sister. I just love the quality of his voice.
Title: I Know It Hurts
Artist: Alter Bridge
Album: AB III
The perfect go-to guys for some heavy rock.
Title: Don’t Cross The River
Album: History – America’s Greatest Hits
Perfect travelling music.
Artist: Amos Lee
Album: Mission Bell
Yummy voice skipping in and out of lovely melodies. You need this album for those days when you just want to hear some all-round good music.
Title: Masr 2Alet
Artist: Amr Diab
Album: [Not Known]
This track makes me think of expanding spaces and deep breaths.
Title: Know You Now
Artist: Amy Winehouse
Jazz updated for the 21st century – classic and contemporary at the same time. It’s a pity we’ve missed out on experiencing just where she would have taken her talent; but I for one am glad that we got to taste some of it.
