Little Boots - Nocturnes

Biography

Little Boots has been regenerating. Since the curtain-call on the campaign for her Gold-selling debut album 'Hands' just over two years ago, Victoria Hesketh has gradually been returning her project to its original vision of true dance-pop excellence. From Ibiza to Osaka, she's been relentlessly DJing all over the world at many of clubland's most esteemed nights, while ... Read more in Amazon's Little Boots Store

Product Description

Product Description

Debut album from the electropop musician. Incorporating a variety of sounds including pop, disco and dance, the album features the top 20 single 'New in Town'.

BBC Review

At the start of 2009, the tastemaking polls fairly unanimously selected Blackpool's Victoria Hesketh a.k.a. Little Boots as the one to watch. These affairs have seldom been wrong recently, after selecting Duffy and Mika to be the sounds of their respective years, and, along with La Roux, 2009 was earmarked to be the year of 'Women with keyboards'.

The only drawback of all this excitement was while every publication produced in the first two weeks of January was going loopy over her, there was hardly any actual music to check out. Poor Victoria may be on her fifth 'blogosphere backlash' - because having pop stars with great hair, fantastic garments, vision and ideas is a BAD THING apparently - which she's no doubt losing sleep over.

Anyway, Hands is very good indeed. Imagine a sort-of Venn diagram wherein Goldfrapp's Supernature intersects with Kylie's Fever and Annie's Anniemal to fashion a momentous pop creation. Fantastic moments such as Stuck On Repeat and Meddle had you wondering what Kylie's X could've sounded like if Victoria chucked a couple of tunes Minogue's way.

Produced by Greg Kurstin, the first proper single New In Town - along with its accompanying choreographed dogging video - kicks off things in style. Of the highlights, Phil Oakey popping up to duet on Symmetry is a thing that dreams are made of, and may cause riots if not released as a single at some point. The same could be said of the marvelous Remedy, or Mathematics, or Earthquake, or the aforementioned Stuck On Repeat - all amazing.

Little Boots then. Be dazzled by her wonder. Hands is a solid pop debut, the sort of album which unites lovers of pop, young and old. It sounds great whether you're cleaning the flat or riding a fibre-glass wolf through a crystal sequin waterfall. Really you can't wish for much more than that. Amazing. --Ian Wade

Perhaps it shouldn't surprise me that the Little Boots "backlash" has kicked off before her debut album has even reached the shops. In fact, let's be honest, it kicked off before her debut single had even reached the shops...and then blew up when New In Town failed to reach the top 10. The problems seems to be as thus; the BBC voted her as the Sound of 2009, she's quite a pretty girl and the height of her ambition seems to be to make catchy pop songs in a world where "pop" is still a dirty word.

Well no one seemed to pour as much vitriol into slamming 2008's "Sound" winner (the dull and derivative Adele) nor 2007's winner (Mika), nor 2006's (Corrine Bailey Rae) and if anyone can tell me that any of that trio are particularly inventive or ground breaking you will be lying through your teeth.

Of course half the journalists slamming her purely for winning that poll forget that it's partly voted for by their brethren, nor do they slate Florence And The Machine (who have two single releases under their belt that never threatened the top 40) who won that Brit award, which really is shameless publicity to the 'n'th degree. But silly me, Florence is a "serious" musician isn't she?

Well with that diatribe out of the way, what is Hands actually like? Well as far as I'm concerned it's really rather good. Obviously some tracks that have been knocking around for months (Stuck On Repeat, Meddle, Mathematics) set the bar pretty high but they are far from the only highlights.

After several weeks of having discovered this album, my headphones must feel like they are just that. I have not stopped listening to this, every song is a pleasure for my ears. How many people today have actual talent, because this girl certainly does. To summarise, Little Boots may only have small feet, but with talent like this, she has certainly created some very big shoes that will be hard to fill

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyful Remedy 20 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
I remember first hearing her gorgeous music, and I was honestly on the fence whether to get the cd. I then heard many of her songs while shopping, and then my mind was made up to definitely purchase. She has a very gorgeous and one of a kind voice. I really love how the songs were creatively selected to showcase her wonderful voice. You definitely get your money's worth on this cd because many of the songs are very exciting, joyful, and unique. This collection invokes euphoric feelings within me every time I listen to it. Many who listen to these songs are going to come away with a sense of an emotional boost. My personal favorites in this cd are "Remedy", "Symmetry","No Brakes" and "Hearts Collide". "Remedy" discusses how she is going to resist temptation with her cures (music and dancing). It is a good song because music and dancing are healthy choices to increase one's fullfillment levels. "Symmetry" is a musical number where the singer does a good duet with the lead singer of Human League. Her and Human League's lead singer sound harmonious together. "No Brakes" is about how love can overtake you at unexpected times. "Hearts Collide" is a very beautiful and catchy song about how a person wants to proactively pursue the one they are attracted to. My two favorite songs on the cd are "Hearts Collide", and "Remedy". The woman singing these songs on this cd has a very beautiful voice to go with the many melodic and smooth songs in this collection. I definitely agree that this is one of the best cds of 2010. If you crave good music to add to your collection from 2010 then this definitely is a cd to add. She deserves to attract more attention in America because she is that talented.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful singer/song writer/artist 7 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
From what I've seen and heard, Little boots deserves all the credit she gets. As a true artist she's done it the hard way and good on her. Her songs are dripping with honesty and integrity and are as true as any poet. I'm sure she will continue to grow and become more successful. All I can say is well done, for all connoisseur's of electro/pop, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Boots - Big star 9 Nov 2009
Format:MP3 Download
I have known of Little Boots for a while, in fact since she was a member of Dead Disco and I have listened to a great many demos on her Myspace and Last FM pages. I am very please she is now getting the recognition she deserves because she is talented and original. Her style is her own which she has demonstrated by the various home recordings prior to the album release.

So for us who `knew' Little Boots the first album was eagerly awaited and we were hoping she would still keep her originality and not get produced to death. Fortunately she did not fall into this trap and has released a fine debut album which is full of catchy electro pop tunes.

"New in town" was a worthy first single although "Stuck on repeat", "Mathematics" and "Ghost" should definitely be released as singles, and particularly "Stuck on Repeat" as there are so many great remixes and other version both by Little Boots herself and others.

The best track on the album, in my opinion, is "Remedy" which is one of the best songs I have ever heard.

Little Boots has proved that she is indeed a true pop star and let's hope that she has much more material to be released. Her feet may be small butLittle Boots her heart is big.
