 Listen to while . . . roadtripping with your best girl friends.

(Quick review and some links to listen to her music after the jump. . .)

Ellie Goulding is another Brit taking the music world by storm. Her debut album "Lights" hit the market last year to overwhelming success in the UK and Goulding recently hit the states with performances on Jimmy Kimmel and Saturday Night Live and at Lollapalooza. For all you William and Kate fans out there - Goulding was the only live performer at the royal wedding reception where she performed her cover of Elton John's "Your Song" for the couple's first dance.

Goulding's music has been described as electro-folk-pop and I think that hits the mark. Her voice is gorgeous, her lyrics are honest and her melodies are extremely catchy and upbeat - all the ingredients for a wonderfully listenable album. A few of my favorite tracks include "Starry Eyed" and "Guns and Horses," but with an album like this it's really hard to choose so listen to them all. Please. And let us know what you think too.
