MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
I’ve heard this band’s name mentioned so many times but only knew one song by them, Time to Pretend – though having listened to the album now I also knew Kids but didn’t realise it was the same band! Hmm not sure what to make of the album – the singles are definitely the stand out tracks but I would listen again.
Portishead – Dummy
Another of my bargain buys in the Woolies closing down sale. I never really got into Portishead at their prime but saw Beth Gibbons at Glastonbury in 2004 (I think) and was blown away by her. This album was a great showcase for her haunting vocal.
