Re: What's spinning? Long while since
What's interesting about the Goldfrapp is that they're a band that is mostly known for doing glammy dark electronic dance music, but Seventh Tree is very pastoral, occasionally folky, almost always gentle. But it still has a lot of electronic flourishes that keep it feeling fresh. Closest comparisons I can think of are Midlake, Kate Bush's Aerial, latter Talk Talk, maybe something like Mike Oldfield or the Moody Blues.
That said, no worries if you didn't get into it. The singer is probably not to everyone's taste, and if the vibe doesn't work for you, the songwriting probably isn't going to be impressive enough to make you like it. Life's too short!
