New from Goldfrapp

female pop star

Alison Goldfrapp

Big things are ready to roll for Goldfrapp this year, with Melancholy Sky lighting the fuse this week and a Singles Compilation to follow in February. Currently working on a new album, which I have a sneaking suspicion will echo the best of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, Goldfrapp found time to slip this remix of Strict Machine through Pete Tong’s letterbox. More launch pad than rocket, it’s a bouncy mix, with stripped back vocals, aching with cool and probably their most credible visit to the dance floor yet.

Melancholy Sky (with a cool fan-made video to go with it)

Also released as a teaser, the sublime slow burner Yellow Halo complete with dreamy video

Check out my Vibe-O-scope to hear the original version of Strict Machine, complete with freaky video

More wonderful electric Goldfrapp goodies here, including some of my exclusive remixes.

Kate Bush – The New Album

Kate Bush

It’s been six years since Aerial. The new album, 50 Words For Snow is spellbinding. And if you’re quick, you can hear a preview of all seven tracks here…

NPR Music streaming 50 Words For Snow

It’s difficult to review something so layered and ethereal, particularly when you’re better listening with an open mind. You could say it’s sprawling and epic, but delicate and hypnotic at the same time, much the same as snow. For all the intricate detail dazzling on the surface, there is a dark undercurrent and a profound sense of loss. There is also the cosy embrace of warm humour, but don’t get too comfortable: there are frozen tears at the end…

The album comes out on the 21st of November, http://www.katebush.com/
