Anyone who's plugged into the electro scene surely knows who Little Boots is. Officially, Victoria Hesketh (born 1984), known professionally as Little Boots, is a British electronica musician. She sings, loads up her Yamaha Tenori-on for youtube videos and should be considered more then pretty girl with a nice pair. Victoria was the former lead singer/synth player in Dead Disco, a short lived electro act that did make a dent in my rotation a couple of years ago.
Now, with the release of the Illuminations EP (released earlier this month), her voice and catchy synth hooks have gotten the remix treatment (which will follow after a few kind words on the EP)
Illuminations EP – Released July 9th, 2009
|1||New In Town (from HANDS album)|
|2||Stuck On Repeat (from HANDS album)|
|3||Not Now (US exclusive release)|
|4||Magical (B side, rare track, only released on a limited UK 7" previously)|
Love Kills (Freddie Mercury cover, rare track)
As you can see from the above tracklisting, none of these tracks are anything new, and although I hadn't listened to a few of these tracks other then "in the mix", It seems all pretty obvious. Little Boots isn't quite the electro champion that we were led to believe. Victoria proves with this EP that she is a crossover artist – Look out Lady Ga Ga, all our girl needs is half of the high end endorsements you get from half of the high end "artists" your label seems to wrangle for you.
