Goldfrapp is featured in the new issue of Remix magazine. This 3-page article is for fans really interested in how an album is created. Tidbit: they left 10 songs either off the album or unfinished and yet no b-sides for the first single?
Alison also did a spikey interview with Pitchfork in which she sniffed of Kate Bush comparisons, "[witheringly] Really? Well, that's very nice, we're flattered. Good old Kate."
You can buy MP3s of the the A&E single and mixes via Mute as of Feb 11. I recommend the moody Gui Boratto Remix and the Hercules and Love Affair Remix.
Finally, Alison and Will appeared on Jo Whiley's Live Lounge this week. Alison got so nervous that she told Jo,"I'd rawther just go home." They stayed and did lovely versions of A&E and a Klaxons track called It's Not Over Yet. You can listen to the show here or get MP3's of the songs at Goldfrapp.fr - just scroll down to Feb 8 and the bit about Whiley show. Here also are some pics from the event... Alison's gone strawberry blond.
