La Roux

a really cool band I’ve been listening to lately, based in the UK, I first noticed them when I saw the singer, Elly Jackson, on the front page of The Guardian a couple summers ago in association with an article about a music festival going on at the time, & as it turns out the other main member, Ben Langmaid, is musically linked to Rollo Armstrong of Faithless, who I also love, I finally got around to buying their self-titled album, La Roux, this spring, & since then I’ve been happy to learn they won a Grammy earlier at this year’s awards ceremony for Best Electronic/Dance Album
