Look! All the funny lady's clothes have fallen off againMore on Peaches
In the process of moving house to LA from Berlin, Peaches has ditched the sweary mouthed electropop filth of previous records and branched out into – no, it’s no use. ‘Downtown’ is more straight-for-the-funny bone sweary mouthed electropop filth. It’s not an earth-stopping departure, but it is irresistible – not least because Peaches manages to make the banal phrase “I’ll give you a bus ride” over a noise like a giant robot cat spewing up sound like an invitation to some kind of all-night New Orleans dwarf sex coke rave. This just in: ‘Downtown’ is not actually about going downtown, but, y’know, going downtown. The minx.
