Token Three - Acoustic Ladyland land


MOVING away from folk, another group I'd like to see on the shortlist would have to be the ever-amazing Acoustic Ladyland.
No strangers to the Mercury Prize, having seen their alter-ego oufits Polar Bear nominated in 2005 for the album Held On The Tips Of Fingers, the group's fourth album, Living With A Tiger, was released earlier this month.
And the album is a electrifying return to the riff-based jazz of their sophomore album Last Chance Disco, which was one of my Albums Of The Year 2005.
Combining a punk ethos to making music with funky sax riffing and deliciously manic grooves, Living With A Tiger is beast of an album.
