Daily Dose Pick: Kate Nash


British singer/songwriter Kate Nash comes out of the gate with horns blaring, strings soaring, and hands clapping on her ’60s-pop laden sophomore album, My Best Friend Is You.

Produced by Bernard Butler, the former Suede man who has helmed records by everyone from the Libertines to Duffy, the record marries shimmy-inducing retro-pop with Nash’s whip-smart lyrics and delivery. Hurtling past the singer’s extremely promising 2007 debut, My Best Friend finds her vacillating between speak-singing, serenading, and full-on rants, indulging her dark and light sides with equal fervor — often at the same time.
