I am terribly geeked by either, but we get both. PErfectly complementary to each other.

Kinda surprising there hasnt been more noise on these two here on the boards.
Should be ace.

Now here's hoping neither cancels. La Roux canceled Lolla last year and we were hugely looking forward to her set.

I rather have Skream there dropping this, even though it was in just about every set i heard at Nocturnal and everywhere else, it's still an insanely amazing track.

Or, High Contrast there dropping his re-edit of Skreams remix.

I'm not a huge fan of either but that Bulletproof song by La Roux is a fucking great pop song. I can't stop listening to it... it's just so damn catchy.

La Roux has this Tilda Swinton look to her.

Its far from traditional notions of beauty, but that just makes her prettier.

I had tickets to see La Roux in seattle a few months ago and MISSED IT because she went on at 9:30 cuz it was a bar/all ages show! I was pissed. I've heard from maaaany people that she isn't good live though = no stage presence (a lot like uffie at coachella)

I love Little Boots' music. Haven't heard anything about her live though.

Anyways....I'm excited to finally see both of them!

It wouldn't be a surprise to see a repeat of some of the songs Gary Numan and Little Boots worked on for the BBC session.

Can't say I like what she did on this song, the rest of the collaboration was interesting.

La Roux is interesting, Little Boots is just boring shit.

I was gunna say each of these things, until I scrolled down the thread and found such a statement would be redundant. In conclusion, I agree with these posts.

I know what you mean... At first I didn't really like La Roux, but "Quicksand" and "Colourless Colour" got stuck in my head after just a couple listens.

At least Little Boots is foxy...

Just listened to 3 La Roux songs and I am in love. This stuff is right up my alley. Will have to check out Little Boots as well. That chick is hot.

EDIT: okay, you guys are right. little boots sucks and is annoying. I do really like La Roux though.

Leeartlee
03-11-2010, 09:39 AM
Yeah, I have no idea why Little Boots was fused with La Roux in a thread. Odd.

Anyways, just got La Roux's album. Officially pumped for this as well. Damn good synth-pop goodness.

I always think about these two in tandem, also, for some reason. Maybe it's because they're both relatively new female singers that get remixed a lot.

"I know that there’s far more ways to be sexy than to dress in a miniskirt and a tank top. […] I think you attract a certain kind of man by dressing like that. Women wonder why they get beaten up, or having relationships with arsehole men. Because you attracted one, you twat."

I don't think what she said necessarily refers to "sexual assault" and I also don't think what she said was really that offensive.

There's a difference between deserving something and provoking something. If I walk around wearing a sign that says "shoot me," and somebody shoots me, I provoked them. That doesn't mean I deserved it.

Little Boots is adorable, but her music seems so generic to me, like a lot of pop divas that come and go.

La Roux, however has a haunting voice and I do like her style. If I were to hook up w/ a woman, she would be on my list.
