I didn't even know I was listening to a La Roux song when "For the Kill" was in that video game commercial. I just knew it was a song that I like. "Bulletproof" is good too. It reminds me of an Erasure song. Those are the only 2 songs I've heard though.
At first (long before they released the debut album) I hated Elly's voice but now I've changed my mind, and I like their music. Bulletproof, I'm Not Your Toy, As If By Magic, Reflections Are Protection are all great.
IloveGarbage: La Roux is a duo: Elly Jackson & Ben Langmaid (like Goldfrapp band, Ben don't tour and he's a studio wizard).
i saw them support Lily Allen before they had their first hit, they really were the surprise success of last year one of the biggest selling singles of the year and a second single #1, yet before they charted they were expected to flop.
The album is a bit patchy but "In for the Kill", "Fascination", "Bulletproof", "Quicksand" and "Cover My Eyes" are pretty good.

Dance Away: reporting in, ...sahhh-lute!!! I love this board, and, I love the Garbage mystique. I'm viewing this board with black background and red text. It's so "Batman" and when I return to this board I feel like I'm returning to the batcave. Peace Love & Underst

Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

thebestsalvia: Yes, Salvia like Mescaline but it is useful for meditation or tired less. But it's possible when you will be taken Salvia in right quantity.

david0913: Oh my, this is too deep to believe; the amount of conceptualization and depth of the discourse can only make me feel...what do you guys talk about on here, anything [sigh]?

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
