It's fair to say that with this rather short collection of only nine songs, Goldfrapp do not disappoint. The whole record is infused with sounds from the 80s, and if the first single Rocket satisfied your need for sexy vintage synths and massive choruses, you're in for a treat! Of course the countdown and actual rocket noises make the track even better! Then Believer and Alive, two other sonic bombs, follow, which helps you getting into the record straight away. Alive is a great choice for the second single, hopefully it will do better than Rocket
, (wich peaked at an embarassing #47...). Then things get a little quieter, with Dreaming andHead First
two supersexy songs which could easily become the soundtrack to your next intimate moment... Thankfully the next two songs give you the opportunity to show what you can do at a faster pace. First Shiny And Warm is (unintentionally?!) really funny because Allison is mumbling the words and makes it almost impossible to understand anything except the title. Then I Wanna Life, is another single-worthy track, very catchy and filled with positive vibes. Love it. The record comes to an end with the dreamy and almost instrumental Voicething (the only lyrics being sighs and oohs and mmhs). It's almost magical.
With this new record, Goldfrapp prove once again that they're one of the most interesting bands out there. Now hurry up and hit the "repeat button" before getting back to bed!

It’s not an ad, it’s not a movie, it’s not a music video: it’s Lady GaGa’s Telephone. (+ free Scotty Dynamo Remix)
Interesting fact : GaGa seems to be the only artist at the moment who's able to create such hype around a video. It has ben pushed back several times, creating buzz all around the internet, until it was finally unveiled and talked/blogged/twitted/facebooked about in the following seconds. Who can do that nowadays ?
By the way, the always super nice and hot Canadian artist/producer Scotty Dynamo sent me this remix he did of Telephone for you to enjoy. It’s free and legal, so say thanks to Scotty (Thanks Scotty!).
