Exciting to hear that U.K.'s Little Boots has a new album dropping this month (Nocturnes) and that she will headline Voyeur tomorrow night at Making Time! Double your pleasure by catching what will also surely be fantastic performances from Beach Fossils (always so fun to see live) along with openers Tiger & Woods. It's a pre-Cinco de Mayo show, but we know that you'll all be celebrating like it's Cinco de '85, crushing those dance moves and waving at the DJ to play that song you love (and if we're being honest probably crying that you regret it in the morning but then loving it again in the afternoon)!
The Philly stop on Little Boots tour will pre-empt her brand new album Nocturnes which is set to be released May 7th, 2013 on Victoria Hesketh's [a.k.a. Little Boots] very own independent label imprint On Repeat Records.
"The album was produced by DFA Records co-founder Tim Goldsworthy, with other key contributions from Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford and Hercules and Love Affair's Andy Butler. Nocturnes is a powerful record of irresistible hooks and stunning songwriting that celebrates 90s house, seventies disco and futuristic electronics while maintaining the magic of classic pop."
More on Little Boots latest album, and choosing to release it independently, below:
"Hesketh says that her Little Boots debut on On Repeat Records will be helped by external funding, marketing, and distribution assistance from Kobalt Label Services and Little Boots' management team at This Is Music Ltd.
"I remember what Robyn did," says Hesketh. "(She) left her label, set up her own one, and it worked out pretty well for her… in the U.K., it doesn't feel like there's a credible pop label, an interesting pop label outside the mainstream." The singer is also open to releasing other artists' albums through On Repeat, which is currently setting up a proper website so demos can be submitted." - (Billboard.com, Chris Payne, 3/8/2013)
There's a contest happening over at the Making Time Facebook page if you haven't already picked up your tickets: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Making-Time-is-Rad and Little Boots also recently released a brand remix to highlight "Broken Record" from the new album (we've included it below). It must be true that all great events always happen on weekends further into late spring....making these longer days feel as though the nights will never end; and this is about to be one of those!
