Nickstape - January '11

Holy shit a month is a long time. Was James Blake only out last month?! Mental.

Anyway, allow me to introduce my first ever Nickstape. Awful name....hopefully, better music.

Album wise, 2011 hasn't started off with quite the same kind of bang as 2010. There have been some great offerings from the likes of Iron & Wine, Smith Westerns, and When Saints Go Machine, and maybe I just need a bit more time with the efforts of The Decemberists, Cold War Kids, James Blake, White Lies etc. But either way, there have been some rad tracks in rotation around the web, and this bodes very well for the year ahead.

Have a listen to 50 tracks below that've provided the soundtrack to my January, and if there are any you feel I've left out, then let me know. At this stage it's worth pointing out that, although most of the tracks below emerged last month, there are a few such as Calexico's Two Silver Trees which came out a while back but have only just wormed their way into my library recently. So no hatin' alright?
