Here at PopWreck(oning), we are open and respectful to the fact that the BBC knows it’s shit. So when they recently ranked Duffy second in their “Top Ten BBC Sounds of 2008” over personal PopWreck(oning) favorites MGMT and Vampire Weekend, we knew we had to give her a listen.
I must say that I’m quite glad that I did. Featuring Aretha Franklin vocals without the tabloid drug use and beehive haircut of Amy Winehouse, Duffy lets her music do the talking. You can listen here to see what I mean. That’s right folks, this post comes with a free stream! Everyone thank A&M Records.
And trust me when I promise that you’ll be hearing more from us, regarding Duffy.
