OK, OK, I’ve been doing this Twenty Albums in Twenty Days thing on Facebook, but I figured, what the hell, we’re in lockdown so I might as well share those albums on here, too.
I mean, now is as good a time as any to listen to music, right?
We have weeks and months stretched out before us, so we can make our own soundtracks to isolation, and try listening to music that perhaps we previously overlooked or had forgotten about.
So, Day Nine: Trouble in Paradise by La Roux
I hear Nile Rogers and Bowie-esque vibes in the opening track, Uptight Downtown, and that’s enough to get me hooked. I can’t tell you how much I love this album, and to think that I only discovered it a few months ago! Go give it a spin.
Check out this 2015 Glastonbury performance, featuring songs from Trouble In Paradise.
