“A breathlessly entertaining record” **** – Mojo
“Their most thrilling album yet” – Clash
“Numan’s harried, yelping cameo on “My Machines” is a triumphant moment, an experimental outburst both ingenious and accessible” – SPIN
In advance of Gloss Drop’s release next week – La Blogotheque have posted a second live video – ‘Futura’.
“For days we were searching for hangars, warehouses and big empty loft spaces. We got the opposite along with the immoderate enthusiasm of Agnes, who works with the city’s cinematography association and wanted to see “what it would be like, a Blogothèque concert at the city hall”. It was incongruous, it was bloody exciting. We were going to shoot Battles in a rococo style lounge in The Hotel de Ville, the magnificent city hall and mayor’s office in the centre of Paris.
The result is like nothing we’ve ever created before. Blogothèque, Battles, Bertrand: three B’s who have together embarked on a twisted mission.”
