golden slumbers

i was listening to the ever wonderful 1992 vanessa paradis album for the first time in while today and was reminded of what a great song 'silver and gold' is - and that last line just makes it

walk this way

the much anticipated album from lia is just about to drop. so far, her appreciation and understanding of all the music we love (claudine, france, nancy, twinkle, jeanette) has shone through so brilliantly on the songs she's released or made available on youtube. so her album has a lot to live up to...!
the first song released 'walking away' was understated and heartfelt, the second song 'sycamore tree' sees lia channelling her inner claudine longet - it's cute, genuine and most of all not a pastiche. i can't wait for the album (pleased to see 'party in the night' will be on it too)
