Published May 29, 2008Theres not a whole hell of a lot to say about Little Boots. Other than being the nickname for Caligula, this Little Boots is simply Blackpool native Victoria Hesketh from the now defunct (?) all-girl indie dance pop group Dead Disco, who were set to release their debut album on 679 (Annie, Futureheads, the Streets) this year. Oh, and her infectious single was produced by Hot Chips Joe Goddard. Now are you interested?
You should be, because this unsigned gem has had the tongues of bloggers wagging for the past couple months with a debut that combines the glamorous aural style of Kylie, the classic production flourishes of Giorgio Moroder, and despite its rather hi-fi gloss, could outshine Glass Candy on The Best Dance Album Ever For People Who Dont Actually Dance to Dance Music.
The single moves to a pace not unlike Donna Summers "I Feel Love - no doubt a blueprint for the aptly titled "Stuck On Repeat - with Goddard stretching the oscillating synths, fucking with the EQs and keeping a steady electro-sliding beat. How this wasnt produced by Richard X, I have no idea, but its a single of the year candidate for sure.
Apparently Little Boots is currently working with Greg Kurstin of jazz pop group the Bird and the Bee along with Geggy Tah (?) on the full-length. That should be interesting (read: uh oh).
