Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots is back! Her second album will be called “Nocturnes” and is set to be released in May 2013. To tide us over, Little Boots is offering a free mp3 of the track “Motoroway,” on her official website for a limited time.
She’ll also be embarking on a mini-tour of the USA playing three dates:

Tickets for her New York show are on American Express presale (at noon on March 6, 2013) and general sale on Friday, March 8, 2013. Tickets will sell out quick, so don’t miss this chance to see Little Boots in a smallish venue.

Elizabeth Harper of Class Actress
I was first exposed to New York synth-pop band Class Actress when they opened for Little Boots on March 2, 2010. Lead singer Elizabeth Harper has been branded “Brooklyn’s very own Madonna,” by the press and the band has become a favorite topic of discussion in the blog-o-sphere. Their music mixes elements of New Order and Depeche Mode with Harper’s creamy vocals that will remind you of pre-botox Madonna. I’m looking forward to hearing great things about them and while they are waiting in the wings to become the next big thing, you can download a free mp3 of their song “Careful What You Say” here. Their debut album “Journal of Ardency” is available now.

Little Boots live at the Highline Ballroom
British electro-pop goddess Victoria Hesketh, better known as Little Boots, celebrated the US release date of her debut album “Hands” by playing a sold-out show on March 2, 2010 at New York’s Highline Ballroom. Her album has been out in the UK since June of 2009 but the US just wasn’t ready for it until today. Her stage show is like something reminiscent of Lady Gaga with really cool laser lights. While she doesn’t have the strongest voice, her songs are catchy as hell and will definitely have you boppin’ till you drop. She graciously thanked the crowd for partying with her on this very special day. She performed her hits “Earthquake,” “Remedy,” “Stuck on Repeat” and “New In Town.” She also debuted a new song that I am pretty sure is called “Echo” as she said that about a million times in the song. She apologized for being “douchey” but the song was inspired by the “Twilight” books. Apology accepted. Another highlight was her take on “Symmetry,” as she performed the song without the aid of Human League’s Phillip Oakey, who appears on the studio version. See some more bootylicious pictures of Little Boots and the set list after the jump.
