I’ve never been a big fan of Goldfrapp, it just hasn’t connected for me. That is until today with the release of the duo’s newest album, Tales Of Us. I put the record on this morning and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. When I listen to this album I hear notes of Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and even some Vashti Bunyan. To give you a taste of what you can expect take a listen to “Drew” (each song is named after a person), the third track from the album. It’s a lovely combination of acoustic guitar, string sections and what I think is a timpani drum.
