  • Maundy Thursday became mournful Thursday at London’s Royal Festival Hall as Goldfrapp played their debut album, Felt Mountain, in its entirety. Released in 2000, Felt Mountain mixed folk, 1960s pop, electronica and lush John Barry-style orchestrations to become a “chill-out” classic, selling 250,000 copies in the UK alone and earning a Mercury Prize nomination. Along with Air’s Moon Safari and Zero 7’s Simple Things, Felt Mountain became one of the defining albums of its genre.
