Bless your soul.
Download this if you like Scissors Sisters, but you wish they were less disco and more souul:
yes, Nicole Atkin's second album is out in January. Can't wait.
Oooh, can't wait. I remember seeing somewhere she recently replaced her band from the last album. I hope this one can live up to expectations if that's true.
I also wanted to share this album with you guys, it's pretty fantastic. It's Swedish pop by a singer named Salem Al Fakir. It's very "classic" sounding. Salem's voice is very unique and I like it a lot. There's power pop, soul, arena rock, and psychedelic influence here. Not everything is successful, but overall I think this is a very good album.

This was featured on some sort of car commercial if I'm remembering correctly, excellent, catchy song regardless.
