Daily Dose Pick: Jamie T


Finding the common ground between Arctic Monkeys, the Streets, and the Clash, Jamie T encapsulates modern English life on his new album.

The South Londoner initially came to attention in the same scene that birthed Kate Nash, Lily Allen, and Jack Peñate, but with the release of sophomore record Kings & Queens, he sprints ahead of the pack, speaking for a generation of British youth in a much more enduring way. Plus, the single "Sticks & Stones" is the catchiest song you’ll hear all year.
