Goldfrapp : Lovely Head/Pilots

Re-release of first single sounds as ever endearingly like an episode of The Clangers set underwater...

The crazy success of former Tricky collaborator Alison Goldfrapp and her partner in trip-hop, Will Gregory, continues apace. Though thoughtlessly overlooked by the tofu-brained heroin addicts at the Mercury Music Prize, there's still no stopping them. Their LP 'Felt Mountain' has gone gold and is a dinner party hit, while this re-release of her first single sounds as ever endearingly like an episode of The Clangers set underwater.



As a completely unrelated remark, I'd like to say that magnolia is the most popular colour to be painted on walls in rented accomodation. It's quite nice for the short term, and no-one finds it offensive.
