While new Little Boots reMixes are always welcome round these parts, nothing compares to the perfect Pop of the music of Ms. Hasketh herself. So though we’ve had to spend the last couple of weeks content with the robotic, pulsating, Tensnake reMix it was in anticipation of Saturday, Record Store Day 2012, when the original version finally dropped.
And it was worth the wait, alongside ‘Shake’ it’s proof enough the in her years gallivanting around the world Victoria lost none of her ElectroPop flair. ‘Every Night I Say A Prayer’, maybe even moreso than ‘Shake’, it the kind of big, swooping, catchy Pop we’d expect from Little Boots. Produced with Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler the track opens it’s arms to a deep ‘90’s House bassline and bright piano hook, but never loses itself in either the ‘90’s nostalgia or the House, instead making both elements work for the track, rather than the other way around. in 2008 Little Boots was the future of ElectroPop, in 2011 she’s come back to kick everyone’s ass and show the world how forward thinking electronic Pop music should be done. Not sitting on her laurels, constantly thinking ahead.
The 12″ holds reMixes from Tensnake and Joe Smooth whilst the North American edition includes additional work from Nic Sarno, My Panda Shall Fly & D-man. Boots will be playing playing May 4th at XOYO with support from Ronika. Yes, we will be there.
