ALBUM
SOUTHERN LIGHTS - SJD
SJD produces disarmingly music uninterested in high-octane dance-floor
posturing, opting instead for beautiful melodies that move you in a
decidedly more sublime manner. Southern Lights is a must for your
collection.

VIDEO - ARTIST
LET ME DIE A WOMAN - PHOENIX FOUNDATION
Meandering bass lines, gentle rhythms and melodies create a veil of sound,
filmy enough to catch the breeze but too strong to push aside. The Phoenix
Foundation are another great welly act that deserve attention.
