La Roux – Sidetracked

The Red One reappears after a minute of absence with a new “Back to Mine”-type mix album. And we get a chance to peek into what makes the diminutive siren’s red pompadour beep and bop. Lots of synthpop (naturally), classic-worthy obscure gems, breakdance jams and a little bit of 60’s R&B for flavour. Yeah, the 80s will never end, get used to it. And La Roux is bringing the beat back. Check out her great cover of The Rolling Stone’s Under My Thumb.
