Florence & The Machine - What The Water Gave Me
One of the most enigmatic live performers of recent years, its easy to forget that Florence Welch has only one album's worth of material behind her. Locking herself in the studio for a two week period with esteemed producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Plan B, Kate Nash, Friendly Fires) to hone it's creation, 'What The Water Gave Me' is a hugely promising benchmark for her forthcoming 2nd LP 'Ceremonials' (coincidentally released on October 31st), all spooky choral vocals and shakesperian, morbid imagery, ('Lay me down/Let the only sound/Be the overflow/Pockets full of stones.'),not to mention the unique, soaring voice that made her name in the first place.
You Me At Six - Loverboy
Professor Green - At Your Inconvenience
The certified kings of comeback, it seems Red Hot Chilli Peppers are beaten only by the cockroach in terms of indestructibility. Replacing guitarist John Frusciante with the far more youthful Josh Klinghoffer seems to have given them a well needed energy boost, as 'The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie' see them back in bass slapping, funky riff mode, as opposed to the slightly dodgy arena dreaming rock of 'Stadium Arcadium'. Good to have you back lads.
