DAISY Marc Jacobs

Walking down the windy back streets of London, it's a delightful surprise to see a row of customised   Marc Jacobs Daisy taxi cabs squeezing their way through groups of snappers.

Emilio de la Morena London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2011

The emphasis was on the mix between sheer fabrics, layers and drawing attention to the feminine silhouette. His collection seemed to be quite different to his previous collections but stunning nevertheless.

The Memory Band "Oh My Days"

In a decade which has seen a wide ranging and fruitful revival of interest in folk music, Stephen Cracknell's The Memory Band has established itself in that fine English tradition of slightly schizophrenic projects pointing in several directions at once which manage to find their place in the ever exciting independent music scene, popping up at several influential moments and though the marvels of technology finding audiences all around the World.

From the outset The Memory Band has embraced change and for its third album, Oh My Days, the ever-fluid line-up of The Memory Band has shifted once more, with a fresh emphasis on rhythm courtesy of the powerhouse team of bassist Jon Thorne from Lamb and drummer Tom Page of Rocketnumbernine, as well as an all-new vocal frontline featuring Jess Roberts, Jenny McCormick, Hannah Caughlin and Liam Bailey. Sam Carter, winner of this year's Horizon award at the Radio 2 Folk Awards, plays and sings on a number of songs, while there are contributions from names new and old; Nancy Wallace, Dot Allison, Sam Genders on vocals, guitarists John Smith and Pete Greenwood, bassist Jonny Bridgwood, string players Quinta, Rob Spriggs, Jennymay Logan and Laura Moody, Sarah Scutt on accordion and recorder, and Serafina Steer on harp. Oh My Days is a warmly-textured, delicately-balanced blend of the best elements from its predecessors. Low-key electronic pulses and loops purr away gently beneath material that radiates a quiet strength, having expanded its palette to embrace soul, gospel, Laurel Canyon rock and country blues alongside the folk and jazz elements of the earlier albums. It's a beautifully-poised piece of work, with the usual handful of inspired covers – Sandy Denny's By The Time It Gets Dark, Graham Bond's Love Is The Law and Jeff Alexander's Come Wander With Me (from the TV series The Twilight Zone) – nestling amongst ten originals, several of which are already live favourites.

Oh My Days is an album not to be missed and is one that should be added to your playlists. The collaboration between these talented group of artists, can be seen in the way they work in harmony on stage and produce wonderful and delightful music that keeps you mesmerized. To listen to some of their work, head to
