Reviews //

Every now and again we’ll decide that a track or album needs bit more in depth coverage than a blog post can provide.

There is nothing and no one in electronic music sexier than Alison Goldfrapp. Certainly not in the vocal department. You can argue with me about that if you want, but you’d be wrong. Did that get your attention? Good! Read on.
