When the Glitter's Gone

Apr 02, 2008

For any songwriter who spends hours slaving over chord progressions and notebooks full of crossed-out scribbles and half-baked ideas, the thought of an artist who is so prolific that even dreams give birth to new creations is an infuriating concept. Consider “Yesterday,” arguably Paul McCartney’s crowning achievement as a pop balladeer, a song whose melody was composed while Sir Paul slept. Or take Townes Van Zandt’s classic “If I Needed You,” a bittersweet promise of fidelity that was written—lyrics and all—while the late troubadour was unconscious. Add to that list Seventh Tree, the latest album from Goldfrapp, an appropriately somnambulant exploration of warmly enveloping textures and half-remembered dreams. More

Goldfrapp's sixth full-length can be boiled down to a simple equation: guitar, strings, and frontwoman Alison Goldfrapp's ethereal soprano. It can also be reduced to a catchy band pairing: Vashti Bunyan recast by David Lynch. Or heck, how about a tagline: This fall, Goldfrapp explores...the Tales of Us. (Say it in your best announcer's voice.) More

Jun 28, 2010

The annual KCRW World Festival had its second 2010 event at the Hollywood Bowl last night and it was an eclectic mix music from around the world. Without any sort of introduction, Oakland's Merrill Garbus (aka tUnE-yArDs) walked onto the stage and suddenly started yodeling and playing a ukulele. She then looped her voice using a digital voice recorder, added drums to the mix and became a one-woman music machine. More

Over the past ten years and four releases, Goldfrapp has set the electro-pop bar high, gliding between dreamy soundscapes (Felt Mountain, Seventh Tree) and dance (Black Cherry, Supernature). Now on their fifth album Head First, the duo takes on Italo disco, going by the numbers to create uncharacteristically mixed results. More
