Body Music • AlunaGeorge

68:05 min • Island • July 26, 2013
The in-demand AlunaGeorge have a clearly idenitifiable sound, and Aluna Francis has an engaging, charismatic voice.

“There’s no doubt that half of this album is brilliant and it’s most certainly the first half. The concern for AlunaGeorge will be where to go now with their sound.”

The A&R EP • Annie

Released July 29, 2013
One of 3 EPs to be released this year, A&R tunes Annie’s musical radar to the dance and chart music of the early 1990s.

“Richard X is to Annie what Timbaland once was to Missy around the turn of the last decade. The relationship goes beyond that of muse and maestro, an equal partnership that brings out the best in each artist derived from a comfort factor and desire to innovate.”

Yes • Pet Shop Boys

Released on March 23rd, 2009

The Pet Shop Boys return with a contemporary and accessible album.

If the album’s common sound is mesmerizing techno-pop, then the common subject matter is not unlike any other Pet Shop Boys endeavour. Yes sees Tennant and Lowe wax lyrical about excessive materialism, inane celebrity, climate change and love.
