Step Into The Dark

Head over to Télépopmusik's MySpace right now to hear a brand new track from their upcoming album to be released in fall of 2008!! It was just uploaded right now, so hurry! The song's called "Ghost Girl," and it's pure grinding synth heaven, which is a completely new angle for the eclectic French…


One Scoop Retro...Two Scoops Now.

Hold on to your hard hats, everyone--it's time to take a brief sweep through Pitchfork territory. Go ahead and gather up the 1980's (sans the Speak-N-Spell), dark pop, sprinkles (shots, if you will) of indie-electro shivers, Anthony Gonzales, and a few good producers including Ken Thomas, Ewan…


Ghost In The Machine

In a word, haunting. Instilling unconventional vocals along with distorted '80's power synth sounds, Zeigeist just may be the new "it" group to lead their proudly pop-happy country to the top of the pop charts yet again. Chock full of unforgettable riffs and crisp electro noises from the…


Sexy Pop Stars, Quite Nice Really

I'm bad for not posting this for so long. The song "Black & Gold" by Sam Sparro is currently leaping and bounding into a top charting position this week in the UK, and I have a feeling it's going to be big. It's a grower of a song, lacking a definite bang within the chorus. The vocals are like…


Happiness and Other False Emotions

Welcome back, Muusers. I've returned with a slew of nothing, wrapped up and presented as something wonderful! + For starters, I present an official remix of Goldfrapp's trip-tastic "Happiness", created by Metronomy and featuring The Teenagers! It's all shades of disjointed, and inspires some…


02.26 Releases

A bit slow on the music news lately? I think everyone's shaping up for promotion to get into the full swing of things for the New Year. (I reckon my Brit is, anyway.) Anyway, here's the list of bimbos and bastards releasing their nonsense tomorrow. It's a fairly packed release day. Erykah Badu…


Sweet Soundscape

Many moons ago, when Goldfrapp's album first leaked, it caused a mass hub-bub amongst popthusiasts everywhere as a torrent of outrage and disappointment surged up within the community. How could Goldfrapp turn so abysmally soft? Where were the ripping guitars of "Ooh La La", or the pulsating…


Electro: Now With Feeling

I don't know that much about The Long Blondes (yet), but I do know that they can produce a tune. The new single off of their spankin' new album Couples is called "Century," and it's a bit of Allison Goldfrapp making sweet love with the Queen of Disco, Donna Summer. More accurately, "I Feel Love" +…


Acid and Ecstacy?

Is that what the song stands for? That's what the video leads me to believe anyway: DL: Goldfrapp - A&E Just joshing. I lurve it. Alison looks so pretty amongst the frolicking topiary. I know this isn't what the masses desire, but I like it just fine, thank you. Not every album needs to be full of…


Calming Music Part Deux - Goldfrapp

Seventh Tree, Goldfrapp's fourth studio album, is being released in February of 2008. That being said, the album leaked in full about two months ago. Oops. Within the cries of treachery, adultery, and larsony, fans respondedly strongly to the album's quietly restrained nature riddled with lush,…


Christmas Message from Goldfrapp

Alison Goldfrapp has officially lost the remaining ounce of sanity she once maintained. P.S. You better enjoy this style if you want to like the new album. It's extremely subtle. And you, what do you think?
