  1. I really enjoy these posts- have already found a few gems from your previous posts. I love Rosie Lowe- didn't know she had a new album out, will have to check it out.

  2. I adore the fact that you're listening to one new album everyday Jennie, such an original idea and one that I really must try one day, I'm so useless at discovering new music! I'm loving the Weeknd at the moment, can imagine Beauty Behind The Madness is definitely worth listening to, so glad you enjoyed it! <3

  3. What a brilliant idea! James Bay's album is one of my faves right now. I also expected more from Jack Garratt. He is great live and the songs he has released are fantastic but the album as a whole isn't quite what I expected.

    1. I'll totally look out for his future stuff, he's super talented!

  4. I love Weathered by Jack Garratt and The Weeknd are forever my fave :)


  5. I went to uni with Rosie Lowe! She was in my year - she's brilliant isn't she. I also love Jack Garratt - his acoustic versions of his own songs are amazing. x

  6. Jack Garratt is great isn't he. Also, Rosie Lowe was in my year at uni - she is doing so amazingly well with her career!! She's brilliant isn't she! xx
