    Spandex A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound

    This is my favourite of hers, which is probably poppy enough for this thread:

    The New Sins - It Doesn't work Like That


    New Young Pony Club is her best known band - they were on the 2007 Mercury Prize shortlist.

    Tomorrow's World was a collab with the bloke out of Air. Great lead single; disappointing album.

    I'll be sure to check out her new album :thumbs:

    Chaka Khan has been doing good poppy things to my head lately:



    Ever-so-slightly influenced* by this old funky belter:

    Me too. I was thinking when I posted it, though - to me this sounds pretty much contemporary, but it was released in 2001. A 16-year-old listening to it now would find it as vintage as 16-year-old me found the Velvet Underground :eek:

    Not got much time for them generally, but I absolutely LOVE this one from Blossoms - brilliant, heart-catching, lightweight synth pop.
