There’s been a lot of buzz around this new group from London. While it’s still early days, there does seem to be some kind of potential in there. Whether people will go for the polished girl group look another time though is yet to be seen. Check out here.

And following on from Morcheeba’s reinvention, we now have these folks coming back on to the scene. It’s nice to see Goldfrapp return to their subtle, cinematic sound again. Songs like this sent me to sleep as a restless teenager, and hearing this just makes me feel so at ease.
