head first

it took me a while to warm up to goldfrapp. i think i had my fall in love moment when listening to happiness at full blast on that leafy drive from the southern suburbs over the mountain to hout bay (if you know cape town, you’ll know).

i have high hopes for their new album head first – due out march 22nd. these songs should be listened to with good headphones (or in a car with an excellent sound system, whilst taking a leafy drive).
