It’s raining, I’ve got a pile of work a yard high and all I have to look forward to today is standing in the cold watching Accrington Stanley play a meaningless league cup match tonight. Living the blog dream.
Anyway, Little Boots, what’s going on there then, has her album done well?
I thought it had tanked, the fickle public only able to comprehend one vaguely alternative female fronted electro pop act at any one time, but apparently her latest single is currently at six in the charts, so maybe it is doing ok after all.
I guess I should know but to be honest I think I stopped caring when she started cropping up next to the genuinely talentless likes of Peaches Geldoff et al in the SHOWBIZ! GOSSIP! pages of the tabloids, guilt by association and all that.
Which is a bit of a shame really as slightly underwhelming album aside I think she’s got a lot more going for her than 99.9% of the other jokers that i shall lazily dub the Electro Pop Class of 2009.
All of which is a really long and boring way of saying that she (or at least someone within Lil Boots PLC) has decided to re-connect with the blogosphere again and taken it back, old skool 2008 style (remember those crazy days?) by sticking together a little ‘mixtape’ which you can download below.
Featuring as it does Vangelis’ Pulstar this is alright by me. Welcome back Boots!
