June: A Playlist

June has been a good month for music. With last month's Courtney Barnett, The Tallest Man On Earth and Mumford & Sons releases still vying for some play time, Florence + the Machine and SOAK went and squeezed two more brilliant albums into the very end of May. Then along came my Icelandic faves - Of Monsters and Men - with their beautiful new offerings, shortly followed by Wolf Alice and their debut album release. 

While I was in London this month I managed to secure tickets to an intimate gig with Nate Ruess (lead singer of The Format and Fun., now turned solo-artist) in the stunning Wilton's Music Hall. I last saw Nate perform with Fun. when they opened to a large crowd of Paramore fans at the AECC, but it's fair to say he's just as much of an entertainer on his own and his solo material is really good. His album - also released this month - has been getting a lot of play too.

I've felt well and truly spoiled for choice this month and struggled to fit all the music in! And that's without mentioning any newly released singles or other individual tracks that have come to my attention.Whew!

With all that said, here's a brief ten-track glimpse into the music I've been enjoying in June:
