About this playlist

The intrigue-filled British duo Goldfrapp -- named after vocalist Alison Goldfrapp -- is electro-pop royalty. During the band's nearly 15-year career, they've dabbled in slinky, chilled atmospherics (2000's [Felt Mountain]), disco glitterbombs and dancefloor commandments (2003's [Black Cherry], 2005's Supernature), and subdued folktronica (2008's ambient-leaning Seventh Tree). They've also had their music deconstructed and remixed by a bevy of A-listers, including Benny Benassi, Yeasayer, Plaid, Animal Collective and the DFA. With the recent release of Goldfrapp's sixth studio album, Tales of Us (their first since 2010's [Head First]), we've put together this career-spanning playlist to give you a sense of how easily their music glides from introspective beauty to seductive bliss.
