New by Ava Max, Erasure, Kiesza, Melanie C

New amazing albums in my record collection: First out is the amazing debut album "Heaven & Hell" (2020) by Ava Max. Not one bad song on it:



I love the eighties retro sound on Erasure's new album "The Neon" (2020). This is another contender for album of the year 2020:



I am a huge Spice Girls fan and I really like Melanie C's voice. But "Melanie C" (2020) is the first of her solo albums that I really love. Great electronic dance-pop music that fits so well with her voice:



Last but not least: "Sound Of A Woman" (2014) and "Crave" (2020) by Kiesza. The latter is a sure contender for album of the year 2020. So good!

Hazell Dean Vs. Energise Records

This text below was originally posted on my Facebook page, but since it was posted, many people contacted me saying they too have read offensive comments by the record label and therefor stopped supporting their music, so I thought I would post my original message here on the blog as well, for those who are interested. One of the people who contacted me even said they were blocked on Twitter by the label for calling them out on a racist tweet which it saying a lot. 

Many of you have seen the statement about what happened between eighties pop icon Hazell Dean and the Energise Records label. I feel it has gotten out of hand and I wanted to share my thoughts. I might lose some friends over it, but if that's so, they weren't really friends to begin with.

Here are my ten cents: We don't know everything about this issue and we can disagree. However, I think it's unfair that some people blindly put the blame of the label closing on Hazell Dean after reading the statement (now deleted) the Energise guys put up. They did make mistakes, but in my opinion, trying to excuse it by making Hazell seem "overly sensitive" is not cool.

I'm not getting involved with the photos since I haven't seen them. However, I've seen stuff the label has posted in the past, and that "white pride" comment (now also deleted) is inexcusable in my opinion. I unfollowed the label after reading that. People can moan all they want about people being "so sensitive" and "snowflakes" these days, but to me, it's a good thing to speak up against racism, sexism etc. That doesn't mean that I think the record label should close, but I think there is more to that story. Besides, them choosing to close the label after the scandal is not Hazell's decision, it's theirs, so don't put that on her.

Also, to say: "The white pride thing was a joke", is just stupid. And it makes it sound like people are longing to go back to the fifties when "everything was perfect". It wasn't, trust me. Especially not for minorities, but maybe most people commenting don't really care about them.

I find that way too many people are victim blaming (without knowing the full story) and saying that those who find certain things offensive are "snowflakes". I think that the real snowflakes are the "old-fashioned" people saying everything was so much better in the past, before LGBTQ people, women and people of colour started asking for equality. And yes, I know that gay people have been writing this too, which just shows that hate is in every group, not just among "middle-aged white cis men", although they seem over-represented.

After this post, I won't check any more posts or replies about this subject, since it has gotten out of hand with some of the commenters. I don't have the energy for all the hate.

Think what you like, but please THINK before you start posting stuff about people being "overly sensitive". Especially when you aren't the target of whatever has been posted. It's just not right.

Peace out.

Verka Serduchka - Disco Kicks (New italo disco)

As you know, I'm a huge fan of italo disco music from the eighties. I also like the hilarious drag queen Verka Serduchka from Ukraine, best known for her Eurovision song "Dancing Lasha Tumbai". Now, she has released a wonderful song called "Disco Kicks". The sound is pure retro italo disco and the lyrics are as funny as ever. Also, you can clearly hear the nods to italo disco acts Scotch and Fancy. I love this!

It's taken from Verka's brand new EP "Sexy", out now on iTunes, Spotify and more. Get it now, eighties nerds!

Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen and Jessie Ware 2020

2020 has been a bad year for the world, but at least it has given some great albums. Here are some of the recent additions to my record collection.

First out: I'm so glad Lady Gaga is back doing electronic dance-pop instead of that boring acoustic/country stuff. "Chromatica" (2020) is yet another contender for album of the year 2020.



I'm a huge Carly Rae Jepsen fan and I recently got her new album "Dedication Side B" (2020). She sure knows how to make amazing B-sides, that's for sure.



I never got into Jessie Ware's previous albums, but "What's You Pleasure?" (2020) is amazing. It's inspired by the real disco music of the 70's and early 80's. Brilliant album from start to finish!

Kylie Minogue - Say Something (Official Video)

It's been a difficult year for all of us, due to the Corona virus pandemic. Luckily, music can help us feel a little better, so I was thrilled when my idol Kylie Minogue released her brand new single "Say Something", the first from her upcoming disco album "Disco". Today, the video for the song finally premiered and took the song to a higher level. I love it. It's giving me "Xanadu" vibes. Check it out below.

"Say Something" is out now on iTunes, Spotify and more. Don't forget to pre-order the "Disco" album from Kylie's official website. It's released on November 6. I am so excited about this one. Kylie doing disco is euphoric. It's the genre she does best. Maybe Kylie can save 2020 with her amazing disco-pop?
