Swag Tuesday

Courtesy of Fly Life Inc, today's Swag Tuesday prize is the new album by British dance artist La Roux. If you've attended any of the Blowoff parties around the country in the last month or so, you've probably heard La Roux. (I think there even might be a Rich Morel remix on the way. Squeal!)
The highly anticipated 2009 debut album from Elly Jackson (AKA La Roux), who has everyone from Franz Ferdinand to Daft Punk hailing her as a talent to watch. This self-titled album is a kaleidoscope of emotions, touching on everything from heartbreak to disappointment to invincibility: all in true spine tingling La Roux measures that create an instant resonance. Ranging from the high crystal-clean falsettos of Fascination to the brooding lulls of ballad Cover My Eyes (that features London Community Gospel Choir), the breadth of the album and La Roux s diversity is clear. For Elly and co-producer/ writer Ben Langmaid, La Roux has never been about producing disposable dancefloor fodder. Since meeting four years ago the talented duo's goal was clear - they wanted to bring classic songwriting back into the clubs and charts, and with this album they ve accomplished that and far more
