Number 1

Upscale dance music. Something to put you in the mood when you’re up all night doing unspeakable things. Goldfrapp’s music is sexy; you can dance to it or sit back. I also like her sexy/surreal aesthetic. Glittery but yet artsy, with a queer interest in dogs. There’s atmosphere, and there’s even sometimes emotion. Why isn’t Goldfrapp more popular? Too cool? Too smart? Well, that’s its own niche right there. File her in the new army of smart ladies reclaiming the pop sensibility. If that doesn’t make sense, I’m sorry; my brain is lit with neon.
