Nice, a fellow felt mountaineer. This album is underappreciated.

People like to compare Felt Mountain to Portishead but I think Goldfrapp was on a totally different level. What an amazing concept album. 10/10, from the beginning to the end... such an amaznig mix of trip-hop, baroque pop, ambient, and very faint synthpop/dream pop influences. I don't think I've ever heard an album that has had such an aesthetic point of view. They knew exactly what they wanted to do. They knew exactly what kind of vibe they wanted to portray.

I love the contrast between Felt Mountain and Black Cherry. Honestly, it isn't what I would have done. I would have delved further into the dark, visceral, underlying, brooding chaos that littered Felt Mountain, but the contrast is amazing when you look at the lyrics and the music videos.

Felt Mountain is all about isolation, sexual obsession, sexual frustration and repression and unrequited love, and being consumed by the shame and the dissatisfaction... There's a certain guilty perversion to the entire album but it's expressed so eloquently. It's starry eyed but it's also wise beyond its years. It's like a fourteen year old girl applying "too much" makeup and smoking a cigarette. It's just so wrong, and it's ashamed of it, and then they release Black Cherry, and it's one of the biggest contrasts I've ever heard in music, and it's a contrast in every conceivable way.


It's really like a yin and yang thing. It's all hypersexualization, but Black Cherry is when she transcends her shame and uses her sexuality to empower herself, to make herself feel beautiful, and that is expressed not only lyrically, but visually, and aesthetically as well.

Black Cherry really disappointed me, just because it's not my style of music at all. It's probably good... Dunno.
On the other hand I can't imagine how they could have developed their previous sound further, so in a way this change certainly commands much more respect than a lame attempt to replicate the first one would have.

It disappointed me too. I just really liked the contrast. They definitely could've branched off with their other style by going way more experimental.

I think that in the field of indie music the saddish band would be The Neighborhood especially the song "Baby came home today"

I want your opinion in a song named: "Down the Spiral: I Invented God".
It is for an amateur band, so don't be harsh. But it can be very depressive, I donnow.
