If you've out-played the new Adele record, try a little Yuna. Even in this live performance, this woman possesses one of the smoothest most beautiful voices I've heard.

The latest kick ass track from personal brit-rock icon Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince of The Kills. Something to start your week off to, plus the video is full of vintage cars and an homage to new-wave french cinema. #win.

You Gotta Know When to Fold Em'

Though you may scoff at Amy Wino's bat-wing-liquid-liner or her fondness for day drinking, when it comes to love, the girl's got soul. Look no further than some of the lyrics off her hugely popular Back To Black and you'll find a lady with her share of man troubles. "Self-professed, profound, til the chips were down. Though you're a gambling man, love is a losing hand." And although she may be temporarily AWOL from the mainstream music scene, there are always talented and semi-tormented artists to take her place and pick up the soul/blues slack. Which brings me to (her doppleganger, of course) Cee-Lo Green, whose latest ablum: The Lady Killer, is actually full of fantastic tracks that aren't featured on Glee or sung by Gwenyth Paltrow. (yuck). Both these soulful singers turn the cards they are dealt in love and life into something palpable; digestible; visceral for their audience to relate to. I hope these hyms heal your heartache, your backache, or maybe just quell your Winehouse cravings for now. (I can't be the only one having those, right?)
