Slide In: Goldfrapp in Manchester

Goldfrapp is set to release their fourth album, Seventh Tree, on February 25th. First single "A&E" is a marked departure from the disco inferno of their last album, Supernature. The song's acoustic strumming is a far cry from the synth squelches of past songs, but Alison's voice is, if anything, more magnificent. The video for the song starts pastoral, but quickly turns equal parts silly and fun, suggesting that perhaps this is the group's ideal setting. It remains to be seen if the rest of the album holds up, but with some tour dates scheduled in Europe, it's inevitable that she'll be playing here soon.

To get prepare you for upcoming appearances, or perhaps to introduce you to the group in the first place, here's their set at Brixton Academy in Manchester from 2005. Enjoy!

Goldfrapp is cool, really fine. But the hotlinkfiles is a server too, too slow.

Thanx for excellent tracks.

Thanks for this.

I'm not sure if it's of any interest but i've done a new blog about Manchester music, with loads of mp3's etc.

Brixton is in south London, not Manchester! (There is a Manchester Academy as well tho.) Thanks for the set :)
