New music to flood my ears this week.

Mr Holmes introduced myself to his friends band Jinja Safari a few moments ago and I'm hooked. Playing alongside acts like Miami Horror, Cloud Control and The Temper Trap the future for these young men is looking bright.

Cameron Knight AKA: Pepa AKA: One half of Jinja Safari also has his own solo project. With inspiration from
Sigur Rós and Peter Gabriel, these ambient and fresh songs second how successful these musicians will become in the next few years.

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (GOASTT) are a melodic folk boyfriend/girlfriend duo fresh out of Manhattan. Forming as a joke, GOASTT members Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl are two very creative individuals. Their weird/soft music is perfect after a long day at work.

Total Life Forever is Foals latest album. This album is sensational. I feel captivated by so many of their songs, but more so by Black Gold and Spanish Sahara.
For endless hours since I've come into contact with this album I have been entranced by the beautiful lyrics and amazing sounds of Foals. I rate this album as one of my favourites. Thank you again Mr Holmes for the recommendation.

"Now that spring is finally here
In your hollow heart, in your hollow heart
Drive through the forest and into the night
Away from the city, away from the light"- Black Gold, Foals.
