Bearing one of the cutest singer/songwriter names ever, Englandâ€™s Little Boots stomps out her newest album, Nocturnes, with adorable results. Victoria Hesketh plays a bevy of instrumentsâ€”most of them electricâ€”and produces a positive, electropop care package containing a handful of gems, secured on all sides with fluffy, French vanilla filler. The emotional and whole-note driven â€śMotorwayâ€ť opens Nocturnes, and is a great segue into the heart and â€śsoleâ€ť of the album, â€śConfusion,â€ť a multilayered, thought-provoking pop song. Conversely, â€śBroken Recordâ€ť seems to have two left feet and might summon a push of the skip button, as its repetition recalls an actual broken record. Youâ€™ll also find a slower dance track, a couple of straight-up disco songs, and an array of party music. Regardless of how they fit, these Little Boots were made for shakinâ€™ it, and thatâ€™s just what theyâ€™ll do.
