Infadels - We Are Not The Infadels

Pretty decent debut album of pop songs with a nod to the electro crowd and a high-five to the punk crowd and a wink to the ska crowd. They sound

Vice Watson - Moments in Time

A chilled out album which I can listen to it without thinking, which can be a very good thing on occasion. Warm luscious sounds. Vince is another
