Pet Shop Girls LET’S EAT GRANDMA Praised For Their New ‘TWO RIBBONS’ Album

New longplayers

2 May 2022

Who: British art-pop duo featuring childhood
friends Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth
Active: 2013-present / 3 studio LPs (new one included)

New album: TWO RIBBONS
Order info: here

The Guardian (British newspaper): “Written amid grief and separation,
the duo’s third album uses beautiful melodies and Top 40 choruses to consider
their evolving bond.”
Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Lots of praise for the duo’s new longplayer. I’m not that
euphoric. It’s back to the 80s synth-pop with Pet Shop Boys and Soft Cell, nothing
wrong with that, but the girls’ new record misses massive earworms like West End
/It’s A Sin or Tainted Love/Say Hello, Wave Goodbye. So I’ll stick with the 80s heroes.

Singles/clips: Levitation / Happy New Year

LET’S EAT GRANDMA Wish You A Happy New Year With A Disco Stomper

New striking strokes

4 January 2022

Who: Dream pop duo from Norwich UK,
comprising Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth.

Their third studio album Two Ribbons lands in April release.
But first a standalone single called HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Walton: “I wrote ‘Happy New Year’ after a breakdown between Jenny
and me, that lasted for a long period of time, to communicate to her
how important she is to me and how our bond and care for each other
goes much deeper than this difficult time. I used the setting of New Year

as both an opportunity for reflection, looking back nostalgically through
childhood memories that we shared, and to represent the beginning
of a fresh chapter for us.”

2022 starts here for Let’s Eat Grandma
with this disco stomper…


Coming In 2022 – Art Pop Duo LET’S EAT GRANDMA With Their 3rd LP

New longplayers coming next year

27 December 2021

Who: British art pop duo featuring childhood
friends Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth
Active: 2013-present / 3 studio LPs (new one included)

New album: TWO RIBBONS
Out: 8 April 2022
Order info: here

Info: “Two Ribbons can be heard as a series of letters between the two of them,
taking the place of conversations as they try to make sense of the rift in their
relationships. It’s a cathartic blood-letting and a devastating realisation about
the fickleness of life. Though it is still very much a Let’s Eat Grandma album, for
the first time there are Rosa’s songs and Jenny’s songs.”

2/ ‘Oh God Ma’am’ by SONS OF BILL (Charlottesville, VA, US)
This album feels, sounds and shines like a rainbow. Different colors, different moods,
but most of all striking songwriting that touches heart, soul and mind. Idyllic harmonies, melodic splendour and sonic romanticism. Like ‘The War On Drugs’ going Americana.

3/ ‘Between The Funk And The Fear’ by HOLOGRAM TEEN (Los Angeles, US)
On her solo debut Stereolab‘s former member Morgane Lhote combines 90s rave dynamics with nowadays electro soundscapes and booming beats. The result is a spicy melting pot of elevating music that feels like a gratifying mind-massage. Both excitatory and dreamy.

4/ ‘Heart Swell by DOTT (Ireland)
The swirling blend of rattling guitar turbulence, sharp garage hooks, banging drums, pumping bass and poppy, melodic harmonies works just perfectly. This stirring Irish
4-piece resonates like an ardent indie rock orchestra producing cutting tunefulness.

5/ ‘Puppy Love’ by MOM JEANS (California, US)
A varied cocktail of jingle jangle pop, relaxing slacker moments and some amplified electricity in between. Both wayward and melodic, cranky and sticky, unorthodox and
magnetic, counter-current and enthralling. New discoveries with every single spin. Bingo!
