Kings & Queens out today!
Today UK cutie Jamie T’s sophomore album Kings & Queens debuts in the states! His last album Panic Prevention hit #4 on the UK album chart, and promptly put Jamie on the map, drawing comparisons to heroes Bob Dylan and Joe Strummer. The album was nominated that year for the Mercury Music Prize, and at the 2007 NME Awards, the kid with the fuck-all grin was named Best Solo Act ‚Äì beating Thom Yorke and Jarvis Cocker. Around these parts Jamie made his U.S. TV debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, his song ‚”Salvador” appeared on the soundtrack to HBO’s Entourage, and the ultimate stamp of indie approval the cool folks at KEXP played the shit out of Panic Prevention.
