Former Lesbian Alison Goldfrapp Goes It Alone

Excited to have her back with her debut solo album. Yes, without her longtime musical partner Will Gregory. Love the work they did together as Goldfrapp, but really digging this very dancey house sound from Alison. Vocals, exquisite as always.

First real taste of the new album, new track "So Hard So Hot".

She's bi, not a former lesbian.

R2 - I know. It's just a little joke.

I guess this isn't a music video, but a "video vignette"? Okay. She looks fabulous, though.

[quote]So Hard So Hot by Alison Goldfrapp. Video vignette by Alison & Mat Maitland at Big Active. The first in a series of visual accompaniments to tracks from the upcoming album ‘The Love Invention’ (out 12 May). These video vignettes (looped into the full length visualizer you see here) have been treated with a range of AI techniques to create extreme fluctuations on a spectrum that glides towards radical fantasy.

Is form a lesbian like build a bear?

I love that.

I'm going to make mine lipstick on the top and butch on the bottom.

Fab, R4!

I hated Strict Machine with a passion.

I like a fair bit of Goldfrapp, particularly Seventh Tree. I generally prefer her/their more acoustic, mellow stuff to the synth pop, so I’m not really feeling her new music. Alison often comes across as a little unlikable in interviews, but at least she doesn’t put on airs and graces.

r7 - she definitely was uncomfortable in interviews in the earlier days -- especially when Supernature exploded and took their success to another level. She seems to have mellowed in middle age and seems quite warm and lovely in interviews in recent years.

Apparently, this will be a dance heavy album. From her IG....

[quote]I’m so happy to finally announce that my debut solo album 'The Love Invention' will be out on 12th May 💚. This is my tribute to the dance floor and it's been so liberating to make. On this album you’ll be able to hear the originals of the teasers that have already been released…plus many more including my first single ‘SO HARD SO HOT’ which is available now !!!! I can’t wait for you to hear 🖤

I don't love the album cover (in the link.) Feel like that the imagery (and she herself) look much better in the video at R3.

Who is this Róisín Murphy wannabe?

Always have got her mixed up with Frou Frou.

Goldfrapp is someone to whose music I wish I enjoyed listening more. It just feels like work.

R9 - It is QUITE Roisin. But Alison's distinctive voice is instantly recognizable to me. Honestly, a Roisin + Alison collab could be interesting!

[R7] How was she unlikable in her earlier years?

by Anonymousreply 12March 16, 2023 10:51 PM

I only really know her from singing on so many Orbital songs.

by Anonymousreply 13March 16, 2023 10:53 PM

This is a better track, presumably also on her new album.

R14 - that one's nice, too. It's actually a remix. She's had some unexpected release strategy in which she's released a few remixes of a couple of album tracks *before* we've heard the original album tracks. Curious what the original Fever sounds like.
