So Adele is cool now? Apparently so as the alt music world moves closer to agreeing she is now acceptable music. She has always had a pretty big voice but her new album seems to be turning the muso heads into a slobbering mess. 21 is the name of her second album, due out at the end of the month. After topping BBC’s Sound of 2008 poll, Adele lost a little bit of chutzpah to Duffy. But with Rick Rubin as producer expect Adele to be all over 2011.

Jamie xx is having a pretty good time remixing as well. He has reworked the entire Gil-Scott Heron album. We’re New Here will be out at the start of February. Here is ‘NY Is Killing Me’.
