7. MUSIC: Goldfrapp, Tales of Us
Goldfrapp always keeps us on our toes, switching from the smart electronica on its first three albums to a softer sound on 2008's Seventh Tree to a joyful '80s homage on 2010's Head First. The group's sixth effort, Tales of Us, is a story of individuals, set to music. The sounds are less Supernature and more Seventh Tree: quieter, more introspective. The album is garnering much buzz for "Annabel," the tale of a transgender girl finding herself. The song's haunting seven-minute video features the luminous Alison Goldfrapp as the best mother in the world.
