Goldfrapp are back, but a little more glam!
on 5 September 2005
Goldfrapp's latest blends the lush soundscapes of Felt Mountain with the disco of Black Cherry and re-invents Glam Rock. Yes they've even got guitars (or at least something that sounds like a guitar run though the filters of all the worlds grungiest analogue synths). Alison croons through the tracks like a diva on spacedust while the synth textures and bleeps are driven by an assortment of 80's sounding beats all swirled up in magic sonic blender. "Ride a White Horse" is the best example of this, and you'll have heard "Oh La La" on a TV ad. If you're looking for the chill out of Felt Mountain that's here too on tracks like "Let It Take You". Superbe.
