Dragonette’s sassy lead singer Martina Sorbara is like a supercool big sister to pop’s nerdy discolettes. Bodyparts is the Dragonette we’ve come to love: wicked funny (My Legs Go Out Late), dangerously horny (the amazing Untouchable) and a bit bad girlfriend-y (My Ghost). The latter track displays a rare - and welcome - melancholy. There is, however, a soul-tapping sense on this, their third album, that Dragonette is capable of even more. We love the strong girls best when they show us that they really can break, just like we do.
