Credited by many within the music industry as one of the most important forerunners of electroclash, Zoot Woman are an English electronic music group made up of Adam Blake, Johnny Blake, and Stuart Price (also known as Thin White Duke, Jacques Lu Cont, and Les Rythmes Digitales), with Jasmin O’Meara (bass, vocals, synthesizers) joining them on stage. Price and Blake also work under the alias Paper Faces for remixes and have reworked tracks for Zoot Woman songs as well as other established recording artists such as Madonna, Scissor Sisters and producers such as Felix Da Housecat and Pete Tong.
After releasing Living In A Magazine (2001) and Zoot Woman (2003), two albums filled with dark, hooky, and melodic tunes, Price and Co. are finally back with their much anticipated third full-length Things Are What They Used To Be. Although it did take a long time to produce, the new record was well worth the wait and despite being a bit mellower and more brooding than their previous work, it won’t disappoint fans of Cut Copy, Junior Boys, and New Order. Give it a listen.
