Why did no-one tell me about this??!

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

So I've been listening to a lot of Last.FM's chillout station lately, mainly as I still don't have my own laptop back, complete with all my stuff - photos, work, programs, music, porn... err...

But don't mistake the tone of this post - I'm not complaining (for once); oh no, this is a genuine "happy moment" post, 'cos Last FM's magical radio station widget has been throwing all sorts of previously-undiscovered audio goodness in my direction, which is how I stumbled across a little-known group from a few years ago called "Frou Frou" and their spine-tingly "Let go" (you've almost certainly heard it, even if you don't know the name). "Breathe In"'s another luvly bit of tuneage, too. Think The Cardigans meets Opus III. Maybe...

Oh, and Frou Frou is/was 50% Imogen Heap, an artist I quite like (feel free to laugh - see if I care), but there is no way she's 31 already. Is she?

Ok, do bear in mind that this recommendation should come with a tiny pinch of salt - it's not impossible that a reeeeeally cynical disbeliever might label one or two of their tracks as the tiniest bit "lightweight-130BPM-drum-'n-bass-music-designed-as the-soundtrack-to-a-female-sanitary-product-advert/soundtrack-to-a-girly-movie", but it's not going to cost you anything to go and find out for yourself. So there :P

Anyway, I've managed to waste a couple of hundred words saying what I could have written as "Go and listen to Frou Frou's stuff. It's really ace (mate)". D'oh...

/Al

p.s. watched Deja Vu last night. Had a funny feeling... Yup, I'd already seen the film (this is a true story. No, really, it is).

p.p.s. yes, I know, I'm an idiot. Taxi please... ;o)

If you like Last.fm (who doesn't) then check out Fire.fm - it's a simply fantastic firefox addon that integrates a sleek and simple station browser into your firefox toolbar!! Super useful, super simple, super!
