Nickstape - February '11

It's that time again - the Mad Notes monthly recap. Again, February was another month in which a number of top tracks have been surfacing all over t'interweb, which I'll do my best to cover in full below.

In the Jan recap I had a bit of a bitch and moan about the lack of outstanding albums around, and I'm afraid it's more of the same this month. Don't get me wrong, there have been some very very good albums...Toro Y Moi, Lykke Li, Sims, Yuck, Chapel Club....all strong. However I still feel like we're waiting for this year's The Suburbs, Merriweather Post Pavilion etc. What is encouraging however, is how many awesome songs have been emerging as previews of upcoming albums. So maybe this month's been more about potential than results....

Anyway, as always, let me know what you think. If you think I'm being a turd and have missed a trick...say sum'n.
