Lovin' you is easy cause you're beautiful

The theme for @lpgrp’s June session is ‘Mini-Albums’.

The listening session will be 10pm, Sunday 9th June. I know it’s normally the first Sunday in the month but it’ll be tricky to fit in nominations and polling before the 2nd.

First, we need to create a shortlist. Please send me the name of one mini-album you’d like to nominate. Use a direct message or a tweet mentioning 'lpgrp' to contact me. Your deadline is 6pm, Sunday 19th May. Once the shortlist is ready, I’ll publish details about how to vote. 

House rule for this month: mini-albums – for our purposes - shall be no more than 30 minutes long AND contain eight tracks or fewer. EPs (and Rush albums) do not qualify.

Hope to hear from you soon.
