Peek at New Pipettes

There's good news and bad news on the Pipettes front. The good news is the group still exists. It didn't look good for a while there. Wholesale lineup changes have resulted in the absence of Rosay and RiotBecki. One of their replacements has already defected as well. As the dust settles, Gwenno is the last gal standing, and it appears her sister Ani is in the band as well. Finally, we hear there will be a followup to the Pipettes' outstanding debut. It should be out this summer on Fortuna POP! The single for "Stop The Music" will be out on April 19.

In the meantime, we are placated by this video and song. Sorry, but that's the bad news. I'm really disappointed by this outing. The sounds of indie colliding with '60s girl groups seems to have been replaced by a straight up trip to the club. What happened to the charm? I'm not giving up. I liked that first album too much. I was one of those fans that bought the singles and the import of the debut so I could get it a year earlier. Please, let this one be a minor throwaway track. You can download "Our Love Was Saved By Spacemen" and judge for yourself.
