Song: Lentil (Live)
Album: Lady Croissant
In short: Pint-sized Australian songbird Sia Furler has been making music for a long while, but her breakthrough came after her collaborative work with UK trip-hop duo Zero 7. Preceding the release of her fourth album, Some People Have Real Problems, Furler released a live album containing some of her old hits and new songs that were later included on the follow-up release. One of those songs is the sublime “Lentil”, written by Furler herself and long-time friend Samuel Dixon, the song mirrors Furler’s charming personality and is a notch above most singer-songwriters’ material.

Song: Bad Habit
Artist: Joss Stone
Album: Introducing… Joss Stone
In short: There is no artist in recent history that has tried to reboot his/her career as much as Joss Stone is trying to do. After the phenomenal success of her sophomore album Mind, Body, and Soul, Stone released three album titled Introducing… Joss Stone, Colour Me Free, and LP1, respectively. On each record, Stone has tried to revamp her career and gain more credibility, but sadly none of the releases were as good as her sophomore record. That being said, on Introducing… Joss Stone, “Bad Habit” stands out like a flame inside a railway tunnel.

Song: This Too Shall Pass
Artist: Maria Mena
Album: This Too Shall Pass – Single
In short: “This Too Shall Pass” is the lead single off Maria Mena’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Viktoria. Written by Mena, the number is her own letter of apology to the people she has hurt unintentionally or intentionally. “The winds of your ego / The waves of My tears / Made The most perfect almighty storm that we’ve seen this year / But experience gathered / We’ve learned from our past / So don’t worry darling / This too shall pass,” sings Mena on the confessional number.
