Virginia Coalition - Home This Year (not available on Last.fm) - great indie-pop I found on eMusic.com, my favourite song is Stars Align
I've re-discovered some cool 70s and 80s stuff that I remember listening to years ago but then forgotten, mainly re-discovered using Last.fm radio, my favourites at the moment are Turning Japanese by Vapors and Ordinary Angel by Hue And Cry.
Back to some albums, the new album by Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly is really cool pop/rock, I haven't liked much of their previous work but I really enjoy this album, it's strangely life-affirming. Try Young And Lovestruck.
On the more pop-folk side, The Weepies have just released a new album called Hideaway. While it doesn't have all the catchy songs as their last album, it's still a worthy effort and simply chilled and gorgeous! My favourite track is Orbiting - so lovely!
