An amazing new song - the audio version is 2:48! - that may pass by the pop set wihout the right exposure. This song intersects pop, disco, Beach Boys and Britrock. It is urgent and sexy, as is the video. Find the MP3 here.
Pleasure Out Of Love
Cowbell lust. You've heard this song on many blogs, so here's the video. Gus Gus singer Heidrun Bjornsdottir does the vocals, but wouldn't it rock if one of these producers would grab a cute girl from J-pop and make her a star in Sweden? Harajuku via Stockholm. Anyway, I fucking love the "darling darling" vamp that begins as a background vocal at 3:15 and runs through to the abrupt end. The MP3 for this song is at Homoeclectic among others.
Melody Club Fever Fever
Did the Melody Club album Scream ever come out? I found this via - I don't know who? Alien Hits? - last Fall and the video is out now. There is something very Stuart Price-y about this song, but with a glam element. If a (Swedish) hair metal band went pop, they'd be Melody Club. And I have to say, this song is superior to what The Ark is doing now. Sorry Ola.
