Wooden it be good

Blimey o riley missus! Jenny Wilson, the Swedish singer-songwriter with the English-sounding name who used to front First Floor Power, has only gone and released her second solo album. What's she like? Hardships! (for that's the album's title) was unleashed yesterday and is available from (among other places. And formats - it's also out on vinyl and CD) the Klicktrack mp3 shop.

Here's Jenny (and chums) performing a live version of the album's first single The Wooden Chair - in a carpenter's workshop. (Do you see what they did there?) This video's more Discovery Home & Leisure than MTV, but that's a good thing, right?

On a not entirely unrelated note, here are the Sweptaways (who also have a new album on the way this year) with their stupendously good version of the Jenny Wilson song Let My Shoes Lead Me Forward. (Sweptaways stuff is also readily available from Klicktrack BTW.)
