Goldfrapp – ‘Seventh Tree’

Goldfrapp takes a walk on the mild side with their fourth release "Seventh Tree," an album they call a "sensual counterpoint to the glitterball glamour of 'Supernature.'"

Goldfrapp takes a walk on the mild side with their fourth release “Seventh Tree,” an album they call a “sensual counterpoint to the glitterball glamour of ‘Supernature.'” After causing ripples in the electronic music scene with 2003’s “Black Cherry” and 2005’s “Supernature,” the Brit duo returns to basics, creating an album reminiscent of their first release, 2000’s “Felt Mountain.” A departure from their usual bouncy sound, most of the songs give center stage to the subtle beauty of Alison Goldfrapp’s vocals.

Result is an unexpectedly mellow album; tracks such as “Clowns,” “Little Birds,” and “Road to Nowhere” offer haunting simple melodies, while “Some People” and album highlight “Monster Love” create a sweeping sound that spotlights the synth work of both Goldfrapp and bandmate Will Gregory. Only “Caravan Girl” is reminiscent of recent work.
