For the Record: July

. Friday, August 7

Easily the worst month of the year July has chuntered through barely noticed with most labels holding their new releases back for the October- Christmas period. The only album worth hearing really has been Florence and The Machine's debut 'Lungs'. Yeah it's overproduced in parts but anyone expecting something subtle and understated perhaps don't know Florence as well as they think. As predicted here over a year ago Florence Welch is well on her way to becoming one of the biggest pop stars in the country.

Elsewhere The Dead Weather did little to stop people thinking Jack White should try find his quality control again. Great in parts but slow and sludgy in others 'Horehound' sounds like a record just trying a bit too hard. Speaking of trying too hard Discovery released 'LP', a sickly sweet hyper white try hard of an album it's maybe the worst record of the year so far.

I've got to agree with you Discovery, and I didn't bother with Dead Weather of Florence and the Machine.

So Insane is an amazing track, but the rest of the album was awful.
