    Sounds like a return to Seventh Tree.

    I'd love to see her again; supposedly new album is a return to Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree. I'm more a fan of the Black Cherry/Supernature glam rock era.

    have had my fill of these guys already (also see: Camera Obscura, whose new album was unbearable even with plenty of time on a long drive east)

    they've both turned boring like some have always been. Ahem.

    Love this band. Can definitely hear the echos of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree here. I hope that, in addition to all the ethereal vocals and lush arrangements, they also bring back some of the darkness and off-center weirdness of Felt Mountain.

    Hopefully we'll also get one more pre-menoapause glammy disco stomper of an album. But if not, we'll always have Strict Machine and Train and Ooh La La etc.

    First single from the new album. What a stunner. They're truly back to form here after the pleasant but forgettable Head First. The video's absolutely lovely, too. Can't wait to see more of these short films.

    they were soooo good in 2008 but unfortunately i got there late and left a little early to get a good spot for aphex twin (no regrets). then i saw them in 2010 at the hollywood bowl and i felt like i was seeing ABBA. while i'm not afraid to admit i like ABBA, i dont need ABBA in my goldfrapp. not sure what to expect if they came back to coachella but i'd probably check out at least part of their set

    Second "short film" or music video is out for the song "Annabel". A really lovely blend of song and visual; mesmerizing stuff. "Annabel" is apparently based somewhat off of the novel of the same name about an intersex child who wishes to experience both sides of his gender identity. Don't think it's on YouTube or Vimeo or anything. You have to watch it on Nowness' website:

    Some ridiculously lovely performances from Jimmy Fallon and Jools Holland below. As crazy good as these performances are, a loud, dusty festival in the middle of the desert doesn't seem like the ideal setting for this style:

    Maybe, but the majority of their catalogue works perfectly for the festival.

    Felt mountain has always been a favorite. I am all for this.

    Yeah, agreed, if they're playing a good mix of their back catalog they'd be splendid, but it seems like they're really focusing on this new album.

    I'd still love to see her again. Maybe put them on the outdoor with the stars out super late on Sunday night. Lovely.

    So, apparently Goldfrapp are screening all 5 of their Tales of Us videos in movie theatres, followed by a cinema screening of a live concert broadcast from London's Air Studios. There are screenings throughout Europe, North American and Australia. Given how cinematic their music is, seems like a good idea. Tickets, info here: http://www.goldfrapp.com/film.

    Poster says March 4, but there appear to be additional dates, depending upon location. Trailer below:
