A French electronic duo, Telepopmusik’s “Love’s Almighty” features the voice of Angela McCluskey and was released on their second album “Angel Milk” in 2005. I’m indebted to one of my Theatre Studies students, Emma, who hailed from France and lent me a copy of the album having put up with listening to my choices of music at the start of each lesson. I’m very grateful cos both “Angel Milk” and their other album, “Genetic World” are a fab listen.
The twist with this track comes in the middle when we’re shunted out of ballad sublimity to full brass orchestra with wow effect. If you’re struggling to find someone new to listen to, who might have hints of Zero 7 or the like, then I recommend Telepopmusik…thanks Emma!

I always played stuff in my lessons, and as a result, I’d be bombarded with suggestions from my flock! “Sir! Have you heard…?”
