I'll save my year ender until December...but here is what's been processing through my computer's sound card so far this year.

Lily Allen
Ruby calls this "her album"
Money Mark
Old soft spot
Amy Winehouse
The hair, the voice and the songs - not the drugs
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
The power behind Amy Winehouse
Ben Lee
Ali's early favorite for best record of the year
Eli Reed and the True Loves
Blue eyed soul as it gets
Common
Like water for sangria
Alice Smith
Throaty fusion of R&B and melodic pop
