Tales of Us (Mute Records)
release date: 9/10/2013
by Mike Delano
Not that Goldfrapp (first name, Alison) hasn't been doing well for herself for quite a while, dating back to her mid-'90s collaborations with Orbital, but c'mon -- having your song in an Apple commercial is a new level of stardom (and moolah, one would hope). But hey, that's where she's at right now with "Ooh La La" featured on the omnipresent iPhone 5S commercials. The piano ballad "Drew," a track from her most recent album, is definitely a more subdued affair than that song (or my personal favorite, the synth-happy "Rocket"), but it's beautiful nonetheless.
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
