Top 5 albums

My favourite 2015 releases to sew to.

1. First Aid Kit – Stay Gold – these Swedish sisters carved a path to my heart pretty quickly!

2. Interpol – El Pintor – this one turned out to be a grower (and how could you go past a song about cruising in an Oldsmobile?).

3. Dum Dum Girls – Too True – sometimes you need a little bit of 80s-style pop.

4. Rob Snarski – Wounded Bird – the perfect Sunday afternoon record from the Blackeyed Susans’ songwriting maestro.

5. The Roots – …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin – yep, I sew on Saturday nights too!

 

Thanks for all your support in 2014. I hope your 2015 is everything you’d like it to be!
