Felt Mountain is the debut studio album by British electronic music duo Goldfrapp, originally released in September 2000 via Mute Records.

Goldfrapp are an English electronic duo from London, formed in 1999, consisting of of Alison Goldfrapp (vocals, synthesizer) and Will Gregory (synthesizer).

The album featured Alison Goldfrapp's vocals over cinematic soundscapes and is influenced by a variety of music styles including 1960s pop, cabaret, folk and electronic music. 

The lyrics on Felt Mountain were written by Alison Goldfrapp and are abstract obsessional tales inspired by films and her childhood. The song "Oompa Radar" was inspired by Roman Polanski's film Cul-de-sac, while "Pilots" describes travellers floating in the atmosphere above the earth.

The album was well received by music critics, which Pitchfork Media described as "simultaneously smarmy and seductive, yet elegant and graceful"AllMusic reviewer Heather Phares referred to the album as a "strange and beautiful mix of the romantic, eerie, and world-weary" and named it "one of 2000's most impressive debuts". Q magazine included the album on its list of the top 50 albums of 2000.

It reached #57 on the UK Albums Chart and #44 on the Australian Albums Charts. In 2001, Felt Mountain was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, an annual music prize awarded for the best British or Irish album from the previous year.

The album produced four singles Lovely Head, Utopia, Human and Pilots.

Felt Mountain peaked at number 57 in Goldfrapp's native United Kingdom, and was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in October 2001.
