Goldfrapp RULES! A post a day – Day 04

Music is hugely important to my creativity.  I spend virtually HOURS making the perfect playlists to work to, picking and choosing the songs and arranging them in just such a way.  Needless to say I consume music at an alarming rate.  Sure I have my favorites and I return to them all the time… but I always want new flavors. The truth is I can’t remember the last time I was THIS excited over a band… until I discovered my new and UNDYING love for all things GOLDFRAPP!!

Goldfrapp is an English electronic music duo, formed in 1999 in London, England, that consists of Alison Goldfrapp (vocals/synthesizer) and Will Gregory (synthesizer). And while I’m not yet familiar with all of their work, several tracks from their 2005 album “Supernature”  and their most recent album “Head First” are on perpetual play on my Nano. In fact I can’t stop singing along to “Rocket“, which I’m sure is driving Fraser NUTS!

Head First” has a wicked 80s flavor to it that works perfectly with the band’s cutting edge electronic sound.  It’s pure ear candy.  Check out the video for “Alive” the album’s second single. Such fabulous fun! And thanks to Don for the link to that one!

Oh, and super cool (and something I was unaware of until Fraser pointed it out to me!)… Alison is in a relationship with another woman.  Not that that fact makes her a better musician or not, but it’s just always so wonderful to support other gay artists, in all the arts.  This is one talented lady, and her partner in crime is pretty incredible too. If you’re not familiar with Goldfrapp, there’s not time like the present to check ’em out. Their music is highly addictive and absolute bliss. Goldfrapp is by far my favorite musical discovery since my beloved Eurythmics back when I was growing up!

    Thanks for the recommendation for their new album. I haven’t heard anything from Goldfrapp in a good minute. Their song Utopia is one of the sexiest songs ever composed.
