    Default Aldous Harding - Designer

    For me I am sure nothing will better this album this year. I felt the same about her previous album 'Party' and most of the music press have been giving her new album 'Designer' very high praise indeed. I am not surprised.

    I can't wait for my copy to be delivered this weekend -vinyl of course!

    Check out this video of her first single off the album.

    That's a very enjoyable song, great feel and sound, I could easily see myself wanting to hear more. I do wish I hadn't seen the video though, it put me off a bit.

    She is now living near you In South Wales , Cardiff I think.

    Yes her videos are a bit disconcerting, but her music is sublime. If you liked the Barrel and you have Spotify have a listen to 'Treasure' off her new album.

    The video struck me as an exercise in how ludicrous can we go and still get people to say it's brilliant. Which I suppose in itself is actually quite clever, but it was too art school obvious for me.

    I heard another track from the album and am now addicted, I ordered the LP.

    Great recommendation, cheers.

    She is an amazing artist producing some of the most interesting music I have heard for years which works on many levels. Amongst all of the fabulous reviews she has had for Designer this one sums up pretty much how I hear her new album.

    Its a bit lighter than Party Jamie but I am amazed at the stuff she has written - true musical genius in my book.

    Once some of her tracks get into your head they stay there!
