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.

Finally Little Boots' debut album has been released! As a long-term fan, in as much as I've been waiting six months for her debut, I already knew a lot of the songs on here - and was so pleased to discover that every track on the album is as great as I'd hoped.

Victoria Hesketh (singer songwriter and a.k.a. Little Boots) is a breath of fresh air to the airwaves. Her music feels modern and experimental, whilst at the same time there is also a definite nostalgia there for the pop rather than dance focussed synth of the 90s. Take the electronic side away and you get something fairly reminiscent of Saint Etienne mixed with Dubstar. Listening to the album as a whole for the first time it also brought back memories of the Human League, so when Phil Oakley's voice suddenly came in on the fantastic duet Symmetry, I thought I must have died because I suddenly found myself transported to musical heaven. This is a great album from start to (hidden track) finish. All the songs are catchy pop/synth numbers with some really great hooks to them, and I can see this album being really big really soon.

If you want to hear more of the tracks before you buy, check out the Little Boots website - as Victoria makes really great use of homemade videos. Not just that, but she's great live and treats her fans with the utmost generosity and respect. Strong contender for pop album of the year.

This debut album from electronica geek Little Boots has a little of everything, at least if you like a good bit of dance-tinged synth pop. While nearly all the tracks relate to love, relationships or heartbreak in some form, there are still crowd-pleasing floor fillers like New in Town and Remedy alongside the more melancholy numbers like No Brakes and Ghost. Every song is worth listening to -- there are no filler tracks, and they are suitably diverse that hearing the entire album in a sitting certainly is no hardship.

Indeed, the quality of the the album is clear from the fact the Human League's Philip Oakey joins Little Boots for a duet in the track Symmetry, utilising their contrasting vocals to good effect. There's a further nod to records past with a hidden track, an acoustic number that nicely counterpoints the synthesised sound of the numbered songs. My personal favourite, though, is Mathematics. Any song that can both get me to sing along while stationary at traffic lights and include a reference to the Fibonacci Sequence is all right in my admittedly rather nerdy book.

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

Pre ordered the album from the Little Boots web site and the postman delivered it the Saturday before it was issued!
First thoughts are that it's all I hoped it would be. A nice collection dance tunes, ballads and even a duet with Philip Oakey.
The lyrics are clever, well written and well sung and the tunes are well put together.
The only one I'm not too keen on is the mix of Meddle (I prefer the You Tube version without the yeahs.)
My favourites are Mathematics, Ghost, New in Town and the the lovely sort of title track which comes at the end of the 12th track.

From the interviews I've seen of Boots she's a very genuine person more interested in making great music than headlines which is a refreshing change today.
In short a very good début album and an artist to watch watch for the future.
PS see her live if you can.
