Felt Mountain is the debut studio album by English electronic music duo Goldfrapp. It was released on 11 September 2000 by Mute Records. The album takes influence from a variety of music styles such as 1960s pop, cabaret, folk and electronica. Felt Mountain was generally well received by music critics, and was described as "simultaneously smarmy and seductive, yet elegant and graceful"
It is defined by its eerie yet enchanting mixture of cinematic strings, synths and Goldfrapp’s haunting vocals, taking influence from a variety of music styles such as 1960s pop, cabaret, folk and electronica. The album’s primary themes are deception, isolation, the oppressive wilderness and obsessional feelings, with a sci-fi tinge
Goldfrapp are an English electronic music duo from London, formed in 1999. Goldfrapp's second album Black Cherry, which incorporated glam rock and synthpop sounds into their music, was released in 2003.
Goldfrapp's Felt Mountain is that and more. Listening to this album brings to mind several other artists and genres; Annie Ross, Portishead, Momo, Jai, Burt Bachrach, Gregorian Chant, - even the Exotica soundtrack. I don't know much about Gregory and Goldfrapp, but their influences are blatantly discernable. This is normally a bad thing but, again, contrarily, and ironically, Goldfrapp possesses such refined taste and talent that they manage to create something new and satisfying.
Felt Mountain is the debut album by English electronic duo Goldfrapp. It was released in the United Kingdom on 11 September 2000 by Mute Records.
Together with umentalist Will Gregory, Goldfrapp wraps her unearthly voice around songs that borrow from '60s pop, cabaret, folk, and electronica without sounding derivative or unfocused.
Felt Mountain opens with "Lovely Head," a track that juxtaposes a shuffling drum beat and whistling that sounds like it could be 50 years old with futuristic analog beeps. Goldfrapp's voice, with all its warmth and expressiveness, sounds instantly familiar. And it retains this familiarity over the course of the album, excepting a throaty, Siouxsie-esque yelp or two in "Human," and a bizarre passage at the end of "Deer Stop," in which her voice is made to sound eerily childlike. Creepy, especially considering the sexual undertones present.
