Peaches I Feel Cream
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: XL
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
After years of simultaneously shocking and delighting listeners with her foul mouth, oversexed imagination, and raw electro beats, perhaps even Peaches has grown a little bored with her shtick. Sure, I Feel Cream has plenty of profane dancefloor workouts, but the album also features a few creative left turns that are far more interesting. The bluesy stomp of “Talk to Me” recalls Beth Ditto ofThe Gossip, while Peaches goes Italo and actually sings on “Lose You.” Hip-hop dalliance “Billionaire” may be cringe-inducing, but at least she’s trying new things. When it works, as it does during her diva turn on the surprisingly rave-flavored title track, it brings hope that Peaches may be more than a one-trick pony.
