Elohim's latest single, "Skinny Legs," might strike you as an abstract, maybe even inaccessible, song the first few times you listen to it. I even wondered if it was too bizarre for me when it first wormed its way inside my ears. That said, I put...Read more
It's Goldfrapp so, of course, it's good. No, it's better than good. It's fan-fucking-tastic. Let its throbbing beats overcome you and move your body as the dancers do in the red hot video. Or at least getup and dance. It's a sin to...
