Jenny Lewis – The Voyager

Comment: This takes us half way through the summer and it isn’t all bad. A new Imelda May is always a pleasure, Conor Oberst might have sucked so far but who is to say? Miniature Tigers, Sharon Van Etten, Levon Helm is the live one we’ve deserved with any luck, Paul Weller (!), Ed Sheeran, Phish, J Lo… wow, some list… but I think the  biggest will be either Manic Street Preachers or Lana Del Rey. “West Coast” is such a great song and the Manics are always excellent.
