Best of 2014 - Trouble in Paradise - La Roux

Best of 2014

Song: Sexotheque
Artist: La Roux
Album: Trouble in Paradise

Some things are worth the wait.

Five years after hitting the scene with their very successful self-titled debut, La Roux finally return with "their" sophomore album Trouble in Paradise.  It's a tight, short and very sweet, nine tracks of bubbling, catchy, and emotional electropop that reveal new pleasures both aural and emotional with each listen.  It's a better record than their debut, which is really saying something.

Trouble is a warmer record than the first record, and yet more mysterious.  Singer-songwriter Elly Jackson's lyrical obtuseness is retained here at points, adding to the mystery yet wrapped in super catchy little packages.  Just a fantastic record.
