CD Review: Peaches 

I Feel Cream (XL)

Peaches was once such an incendiary, shock-inducing artist, she was a role model for performers like Le Tigre, M.I.A., Amanda Blank and Santigold. So how does she deal with being a veteran rather than the sultry new face on the scene? Basically by keeping the beats hot, the lyrics wry and the hooks more infectious than the creepy sexual partners she references in her songs. Like previous efforts, I Feel Cream is a party-ready mix of hip-hop, dance, electro-pop and R&B held together by its consistently fantastic production. The bass is overwhelming, the beats made for sweating and the synths are snarling, retro beasts ready to tear through clubs. Yeah, the lyrics still take risqué to eyebrow-raising levels, but these songs are simply too good to be distracted. — Whelihan
