Music to Paddle With. Goldfrapp – Tales of Us

Inserito in Non categorizzato

Goldfrapp - Tales Of Us

After a disappointing fifth studio album, Goldfrapp are back on form with their new effort: “Tales Of Us”.
Goldfrapp is an English electronic music duo consisting of Alison Goldfrapp (vocals, synthesizer) and Will Gregory (synthesizer). The band, formed in 1999, released their debut album “Felt Mountain” one year later. With “Felt Mountain”, well received by critics, the band established what would become their trademark musical style, mixing trip-hop, synth-pop and cinematic soundscapes. Not surprisingly, the musical backgrounds of the two artists are very different, classic for Will and Pop / Disco Music-oriented for Alison.

Godfrapp - Tales Of Us
 
Well, let’s just say that “Tales Of Us” is a completely and pleasantly different album compared to "Head First". In fact, with this new effort the English electronic music duo are back to their roots, filled with cinematic and elegant soundscapes and, above all, the beautiful and warm voice of Alison. A “Felt Mountain” with steroids, we would say .as with “Tales Of Us” the band takes the cinematic, intimate and narrative musical approach even a step further. Evocative and haunting are the first two adjectives that come to mind trying to describe the inner beauty of the 10 songs of the album, each one named after a character in Alison's world, aside from “Stranger” (track #8). Elegant and melancholic, every song stands out though, if pressed, we would probably single out "Drew", "Alvar" and "Stranger”. In short, this is a wonderful effort by a great band back on form. Great tunes to paddle by!
