Whatever Happened to Lily Allen?

The music-blog hype machine works so quick nowadays, it should only be another week before they take Lily Allen through the entire cycle of hype to backlash to back-backlash to exhaustion. Too bad cuz her stuff is kinda cool, and she deserves a chance to at least, like, put one record out before the blogstorm makes everybody sick of her.

But it's too late for that.. by mid-may we'll be reminiscing about her glory days and wondering "who's the next Lily Allen?" So I'm gonna jump ahead and nominate Zarif, another UK rookie who's due for some shine (check the first track, "let me back"). She's only got 1,000 myspace friends right now, so you might have as much as two months before she becomes a blogville has-been. Get in on this one while you can!
