Goldfrapp Returns With Lush New Single, "Drew"

Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory seem to be caught in a back-and-forth dance. Back in 2005, Goldfrapp delivered their third studio album — the dark synth-pop masterpiece, Supernature. Three years later, they returned with Seventh Tree, a gorgeous set of featherlight lullabies and gentle alt-folk…


Goldfrapp to Release Greatest Hits Album in February, New Single "Yellow Halo"

Goldfrapp have been going strong for well over a decade, supplying everything from lush, dreamy tunes ("Black Cherry," "A&E"), to bouncy electro anthems ("Rocket," "Number 1") to grinding synth 'n' sex fests ("Strict Machine," "Ooh La La"). Appropriately then, it came as no surprise when Allison…


Win A Copy of Lady Gaga's Born This Way: The Remix! (Giveaway)

Last weekend, my bloggy BFFL Jon ALi and I went on a road trip to Boston. And in between the scream-singing of a majority of Talk That Talk (and some Kat DeLuna, but we're not talking about that right now), Jon played me some of his favorite mixes from Mademoiselle Gaga's brand new remix album:…

MuuCast Episode 7: Miles Away

It's time for a brand new MuuCast! Fair warning: This isn't a collection of juicy booty bangers or sizzling electro stompers--instead, it's the stuff of dreams. Inspired by my recent longing to travel, plenty of downtime and perhaps a touch of the holiday blues, I now present MuuCast Episode 7:…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 50 Singles of 2010

Still hot from the Internet-killing, bandwidth-shattering success of yesterday's Top 40 Albums of 2010 list (including a most major of giveaways, in which I'm giving away ALL TEN ALBUMS that made the Top 10 of the list--you still have time to enter up until January 2!), I now present MuuMuse's Top…


Rihanna Gets Lonely for "Only Girl (In The World)" (Video Premiere)

That Mandler's gone and done it again: The director and longtime collaborator for Rihanna ("Unfaithful"; "Disturbia"; "Russian Roulette") has added yet another solid production to the ever-expanding RiRepetoire.

Misery Meets Xanadu: The Video Premiere of Goldfrapp's "Rocket"

Now this I was not expecting: Alison Goldfrapp makes a truly obvious, stereotypical break-up video. It's that age-old tale: the really bad break-up where, after a few spats and some spilled tea or whatnot, you bind your ex-lover in duct tape, kidnap them, hitch a 16-wheeler with a massive rocket,…

This girl is BLOWING. MY. MIND. Here come the first promotional photos for Rihanna's "Rude Boy" video from Island Def Jam. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas, the same director behind her last video for "Hard." Like Alison Goldfrapp, it appears that Riri also enjoys riding on a white…

Goldfrapp Reveal Album Cover for Upcoming LP, Head First

Check it out--Alison just posted the cover for Head First on the official site! Isn't it luscious? Very simple idea, but it seems like the perfect extension beyond the Seventh Tree artwork. Oh, and as for the videos...this doesn't look like cover art that lends itself to licking dirt and melting…
