Little Boots
is one of my favorite new artists to emerge this year. She reminds me of another new Slow Girl artist Lykke Li, but I prefer Little Boots’ dancier approach to the genre. I first fell in love with her after I heard Fake Blood’s remix of her song “Stuck on Repeat.” A finalist for best song title of the year.

Little Boots, real name Victoria Hesketh, got her name from the Latin translation of the word and popular X-rated movie Caligulia. She now resides in Los Angeles, and has recently put out her first EP, Arecibo. A relative newcomer to the game, she has already worked with members of Hot Chip and The Bird and the Bee.

I’m posting some of the songs from the EP here but I urge fans to go out and support artists by actually buying their music and seeing them live.
