Various Artists Goldfrapp: We Are Glitter
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Mute
Say what you will about the sensuous nature of Goldfrapp, but this comp is about as close to an instant classic as you can get. Far from a singular club-ready vision, We Are Glitter finds the vintage disco-heavy DFA boys poised alongside the moodiness of Mœm and the gnarly distortion of Shitkatapult's T. Raumschmiere. In other words, Goldfrapp is subtly becoming everyone's favorite band. It goes without saying that Carl Craig's and Tiefschwarz's mixes triumph with two mind-splitting cosmic journeys for the floor. Goldfrapp just got a shitload darker and sexier.
