It started with an IM conversation:
Rocko: Have you heard of lily allen?
Me: oh weird, she sounds like a cross between lady sovereign, the streets, and norah jones.
Then, a few days later, a review in Pitchfork of her new album; they gave it a whopping 8.3.
I scoured record stores in person and online, with no luck in finding Alright Still anywhere outside of the UK. Now, today, this and I can hardly take it anymore; where can I get my grubby little hands on this hot shit?!? I don’t even know if once I have the CD, I’ll listen to it more than a few times, but I want it now now now! And pass me my slap bracelet, trucker hat, and wedge sandals while you’re at it.
