R U Mine by Arctic Monkeys which was released on the 26th Feb. I really hope this grows on me cause I think this is really boring :(

Today has been such a good day. I have:
                       a) Been sent my Sleigh Bells ticket
                       b) Been sent my Zulu Winter ticket
                       c) My flatmate bought me a Pains of Being Pure at Heart ticket (three cheers for Thomas)
                      d) My best mate has bought me a Jay-z and Kanye ticket for my birthday (which isn't till July?!?)
                      e) I went outside today without a coat on, and it was ok.
I am so so so so excited for Sleigh Bells! Haven't stopped listening to 'Treats' since it came out in 2010 and muchos excitement to hear the new album live. 
I don't know too much about Zulu Winter but my flatmate Tom (henceforth referred to as 'Flatmate Tom') just bought me a ticket and was appalled when I said I wasn't really up to date with them. 

I'm also going to pretend I hate Pains of Being Pure of Heart as my boyfriend is obsessed and there's this unwritten rule where I must hate everything he likes. (But I am secretly a bit delirious from this mounting excitement). 
The no-coat thing was good too. This definitely means summer's approaching, although I did get a nip-on.

Also had the most fantastic revelation last night when I discovered my all new favourite band of all time!!! I cannot believe I've only just found them! 
Alabama Shakes EP has been available for a good few months, but they're album is being released in early April. Fortunately for me and you, it has been leaked already.
They are a bit like The Black Keys but a lot better. Listen to track one 'Hold On': 

I love them and I want you all to love them too. 

Also, congrats to The Maccabees for choosing Feel To Follow as their second single release as it's my favey.
