Canadian-born, Berlin-dwelling ex-school teacher Merrill Nisker, has spent the last decade or so being better known as in-your-face electro minx Peaches. Her rampant, sexually charged performances and albums have lit up the fringes of pop with albums such as Impeach My Bush and found her working with the likes of Iggy Pop, Chicks On Speed, Pink and Josh Homme. Live, she's like a performance art force of nature, albeit one wrapped in sequined gimp masks and a tendency to pretend her microphone's a penis.
For her fourth album, a sense of mellowing has occurred. I Feel Cream may not be quite the filth fest of yore, no one could expect to build a lifelong career out of singing about your bits forever, but it still has its moments of saucery and depravity. Having worked on this with super hot disco burners Simian Mobile Disco, Soulwax, Drums Of Death and Digitgalism, the rawk shapes of Impeach My Bush have been Joan Jettisoned in favour of a more delectable groove based situation.
Title track I Feel Cream is a hands-in-the-air laser elation, while Lose You sees Peaches get almost vulnerable over skittering disco, while Soulwax turn Talk To Me into one of Peaches finest moments - in a perfect world, this would be showing up Lady Gaga something rotten - to the point that you just know if Pink covered it, it would be a global chart topper.
The old potty mouth is still in evidence though on Billionaire she spars with Yo Majesty's Yunda K and emits the greatest line in pop in 2009: ''big trouble in little mangina'' and you don't really need me to explain Mommy Complex do you?
So, Peaches then. An amazing artist who may not be hassling the compilers of the Top Ten, but whose influence and fingerprints will be seen to be all over 21st Century Pop. If you've yet to discover her, buy everything she's done this instant. Amazing. --Ian Wade

integral part of my record collection, as Peaches has been since her breakthrough with "The Teaches of Peaches" in 2000. That these two excellent units have decided to work together on "I Feel Cream," Peaches' fifth full-length album, is a treat to us all. Merrill Nisker (being Peaches' real name) and her witty, sassy lyrics and amateurish yet charming rap in combination with Simian Mobile Disco (and Soulwax, Drums of Death and Digitalism) and their ingenious electronic beats and breaks is an unbeatable and unmissable mix. The three tracks prodded by Simian Mobile Disco ("Lose You," "Billionaire," and "Mud") are my favourites on the album, and some of the best tracks Peaches has ever created. Critics tend to listen and analyze her lyrics from an intellectual aspect, but I just take them for their humour and originality without subtextualizing or anything. It is after all music that is made to dance to. At least that's what I hope it is. I'm quite positive Peaches would agree.
PS. I can strongly recommend the music videos that accompany the record, the first time ever an artist has produced music
videos for every single track on their album. All as funny and compelling as the music.
This album continues the trend, but adds a little soul too in the shape of Lose you. It's a great album that really works from beginning to end and begs the question for me, why is Peaches not talked about as much as the likes of Lady Gaga, La Roux and others. Her music is completely superior, original and frankly in a different world. Oh, probably because she's older.
Wake up world, this lady should be a superstar.
an appreciative nod in the direction of Peaches' fifth album 'I Feel Cream'.
Merrill Beth Nisker is a writer/performer worth getting to know.
Confrontational, dirty (in the nicest possible way) and fiercely talented.
(Her 2006 album 'Impeach My Bush' really is one of life's small necessities).
The new album finds Our Lady working with some exciting contemporary
electro producers : Simian Mobile Disco, Soulwax and Digitalism among them.
The territory has not changed too much (thank goodness!). If anything the
differences are small and point towards a more focussed musicality than
we have heard in her work before. Dare I say a greater maturity?!
Things start as they mean to go on with the wonderfully
brash but perfectly trimmed 'Serpentine (I Don't Give A ...Pt.2)'.
Sassy, rhythmically focussed and a bursting bubble of fun.
'Talk To Me' demonstrates, if evidence were needed, that Peaches can sing.
Her performance with Soulwax is a lung-busting, larynx-grating,
pristine piece of electric R&B. (I may have shouted "Go Girl!" unwittingly
at some point whilst listening to it for the first time!)
The collaboration with SMD on 'Billionaire' is a fine example of funky
urban minimalism. Peaches spits out the lyrics like she means business.
Title track 'I Feel Cream' has a strong, danceable, trancey synth line,
addictive beats and a nice floaty vocal hovering over it all.
'Show Stopper' is a short but electric punch in the gut.
'Mud', another peachy piece of work with SMD, is pinned down by
a glorious big, bad bassline and decorated with just the right
amount of blips and bleeps to provide structural support for the vocal.
Final track, 'Take You On' makes a lot out of very little.
A stripped-down, highly compressed arrangement which
brings the project to an end in fine edgy electro style.
Somewhat neglected on these shores, Peaches deserves an audience.
If you like feisty and fabulous then in all probability you'll love this!
