Goldfrapp – “Thea (Twin Shadow Remix)”

Apparently, Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, Jr. isn’t spending all his time lately coming up with songs to cover in his great UNDER THE CVRS video series, though god knows he’s spending a lot of time doing that. Somewhere in there, he managed to carve out space in his schedule to remix “Thea,” a track from… More »

Goldfrapp – “Yellow Halo” Video

Electro-pop mainstays Goldfrapp have a new greatest-hits compilation coming out, and it features a deeply pretty new track called “Yellow Halo.” The song’s video is a sort of meditative travelogue about the band, following them as they stare languidly out of airplane windows and step onstage at massive festivals. Lisa Gunning filmed the entire thing… More »

Goldfrapp – “Believer (Little Loud Remix)”

As mentioned a ways back, in its original Head First form, Goldfrapp’s “Believer” would work well on the rollerskating rink where you’d also lace-up for “Rocket”’s Pointer Sisters on Xanadu. This airy remix by Little Loud maintains that general pulse, but turns it into more of a couples-only moment. More »

Goldfrapp – “Alive” Video

Goldfrapp’s videos are always entertaining because they never take themselves too seriously. That sense of humor comes out in this clip for next single “Alive,” which, without giving away too much, has kind of a nice final twist toward the end. The first twist to it? The Legs-directed video’s Satan worshipers aren’t as tough a… More »

Goldfrapp – “Rocket” Video

Goldfrapp’s fifth album Head First heralds a return to synth dance for the London duo. And that also means a return to dance videos. We’ve heard (and heard remixes of) first single “Rocket” already, but now it comes with a rather literal video. In it, Alison Goldfrapp drives a purple rocket through a Mars-like desert,… More »

Grum Remix Goldfrapp

The fifth album from Goldfrapp got its start (and got us thinking about the Pointer Sisters and ELO) with “Rocket,” followed by “Better” just earlier today. The anticipation builds with this remix from Grum, the UK dance producer who’s filed redos for Passion Pit and Lady Gaga before Passion Pit redid Lady Gaga. His take… More »

New Goldfrapp – “Believer”

Goldfrapp’s first Head First track “Rocket” sounded like the Pointer Sisters with a touch of Xanadu. “Believer” should go over well at the roller skating rink, too. Listen at HypeM. More »

New Goldfrapp – “Rocket”

As Scott noted the other day, the new Goldfrapp sounds like the Pointer Sisters. This is true. It’s the opening song from the British group’s fifth studio album Head First, which follows 2008’s Seventh Tree. And, as the cloudy pastel Alison Goldfrapp dreamscape cover pic (and lettering) suggests, on top of the Sisters, there’s a… More »

New Goldfrapp – “Little Bird” (Animal Collective Remix)

Animal Collective’s balmy, colorful headlining set was a Pitchfork Festival highlight. On Goldfrapp’s “Caravan Girl” digital single, they sprinkle a thimble full of tropical fireworks onto Seventh Tree’s “Little Bird.” It’s an interesting, pretty overlap — Alison Goldfrapp’s smeary, plaintive vocals and AC’s percussive magic spiraling into an extended (and understated) coda swirl. It’s the… More »

New Goldfrapp Video – “Caravan Girl”

Continuing the recent run of summertime videos, Goldfrapp’s “Caravan Girl” follows a skateboarder from her caravan park home base across town, past the oceans, down highways, and through tunnels, armed with her trusty radio, checkerboard kicks, and warm breezes. She stops to eat breakfast (in time lapse), do some doodling, make origami, pet a horse,… More »

Goldfrapp Bring “Happiness,” Questionable Wardrobe Decision To Leno

Once upon a time we told you “Happiness” was a guy pogoing down the street in white formalwear. It can also be a warm gun. Or, it seems, Alison, Will, & Co. drinking the Kool-Aid, laying down a hippie throw rug, hanging some sparkles, and showing up on Leno in flowing Heaven’s Gate-meets-Cass Elliot ensemble… More »

New Goldfrapp Video – “Happiness”

Happiness is a guy pogoing down the street in white formalwear. With legs where the pogo stick should be. Will and Alison took some chances with the smoothed and yes happy new record, and it hasn’t been to everyone’s liking after what they’d come to expect of the black cherry girl, but we’ve found SeventhMore »

Goldfrapp Covers Klaxons

Artists paying homage to their contemporaries via cover tunes isn’t strictly a British phenomenon, but at least when captured in studio, it seems they float over to us from the other side of the Atlantic more often than not. (Even when it’s an American band over there, ala Foo.) Like the Fighters’ Fire take, Aliso… More »

New Goldfrapp Video – “A&E”

Did we hear you say you wanted more, more, MOR Goldfrapp earlier this week? We got you. Our sleeping beauty comes to on a bed of autumn leaves, singing “Like I’m walking up surrounded by me,” and here “me” is represented by corporally manifesting piles of leaves which proceed to bow in worship of Aliso… More »
