Eurotix - The Stupid Ones (EP)

After a long break because of the pandemic, mine and Larry Forsberg's synthpop project Eurotix are finally back with the brand new EP "The Stupid Ones". And don't worry, our signature sound of eighties retro synthpop hasn't gone away.

The title track is our most political one yet, discussing the state of the world right now and how some people prefer hate and ignorance over love. The EP also includes a funny song about a guy wishing he was Tom Jones, the melancholic "Memory Lane" and finally a brand new remix of the song "You Won't See Me Dancing".

Please support our music by buying or streaming the new EP, out on Bandcamp (supports the artist directly), iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and many other digital music stores.

"The Stupid Ones":

1. The Stupid Ones
2. Tom Jones
3. Memory Lane
4. You Won't See Me Dancing (2021 Remix)

Kim Wilde - Pop Don't Stop: Greatest Hits

Kim Wilde is one of my biggest idols so I absolutely needed her new box set "Pop Don't Stop: Greatest Hits" in my collection. It consists of five CDs and two DVDs filled with hits, B-sides, remixes and music videos. It's so nice to finally get many of the rare single remixes on CD for the first time. And of course the brand new tracks too.

Steps - What The Future Holds Pt. 2

I'm loving the brand new Steps album "What The Future Holds Pt. 2". It's so catchy. It was originally intended to be just an expanded edition of their 2020 album, but they recorded so many good songs that it became a whole new studio album. Lucky us!

Included are the amazing singles "Take Me For A Ride" and Five Star cover "The Slightest Touch". They've also included the Michelle Visage duet version of "Heartbreak In This City", although I personally prefer the original album version.

Highly recommended!

Sheena Easton - The Definitive Singles 1980-1987

I'm a huge Sheena Easton fan so I'm very happy about getting her brand new collection "The Definitive Singles 1980-1987" yesterday. It consists of three remastered discs packed with hits, plus rare and unreleased songs and remixes, for example the lost 1986 tracks "Anything Can Happen" and "Sweet Talker" from 1986. I love it!

ABBA - I Still Have Faith In You/Don't Shut Me Down (CD-Singles)

I don't buy one track CD singles anymore, but I had to make an exception for the ABBA singles "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down". It's nice to have them in the collection. I'm so glad my childhood heroes are back! I can't wait for the "Voyage" album to be released.

ABBA are back with Voyage album

Wow. I still can't believe that ABBA are back, for real. I've been a huge fan since I was a child and their music means the world to me. I was terribly bullied as a child and listening to ABBA and Agnetha's solo music was my escapism. So yesterday's news about a brand new ABBA album made me so emotional. I cried through the livestream and the new songs.

It's like a dream come true. I don't care what anyone else says, I love it. The two first singles from the album, "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down" are out digitally now and although I love both, the latter is my personal favourite of the two. I can't wait to hear the full album.

So the brand new album "Voyage" will be released on November 5 and you can pre-order it now from ABBA Voyage and most other outlets. It's available digitally, on CD, vinyl and cassette. Check out the tracklist down below. It's interesting to finally see the unreleased ABBA tracks "Just A Notion" and "Bumblebee" released. This will be iconic

"Voyage" tracklist:

1. I Still Have Faith In You
2. When You Danced With Me
3. Little Things
4. Don't Shut Me Down
5. Just A Notion
6. I Can Be That Woman
7. Keep An Eye On Dan
8. Bumblebee
9. No Doubt About It
10. Ode To Freedom

Fyr Og Flamme - Debut album on CD, vinyl and digital

Eighties pop never dies! I really love my signed copy of the fabulous debut album by Danish pop duo Fyr Og Flamme. The duo consists of the handsome guys Jesper Groth and Laurits Emanuel. They competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with the hit single "Øve Os På Hinanden" that I fell for right away.

The whole album is great but my favourite track right now is the catchy "112" which is a tribute to the sound of Danish eighties duo Laban's classic "Love In Siberia". I highly recommend this fantastic retro album, so get it now!

Jessie Ware, Keedy, Keiino, Jimmy Somerville and Eurovision

Some albums are so good that they deserve to be bought twice. This is "What's Your Pleasure? (The Platinum Pleasure Edition)" (2021) by Jessie Ware, featuring eight new tracks. Amazing retro disco album that I highly recommend.



I also bought these CD's a while back: "Save Some Love" (1991) and "Chase The Clouds" (1991) by Keedy, "OKTA" (2020) by Keiino, reissue of "Home Again" (2002) by Jimmy Somerville and finally "Eurovision Song Contest 2021".

Requiem: The London Boys Story (CD Box Set)

I'm loving the new CD box set "Requiem: The London Boys Story", just released by Cherry Pop Records. It includes the dance-pop duo's first three studio albums "The Twelve Commandments Of Dance" (1988), "Sweet Soul Music" (1991) and "Love 4 Unity" (1993), plus a ton of remixes and edits, all remastered.

The duo is best known for their singles "Requiem", "London Nights" and "Harlem Desire" which are all here, including all the remixes by the amazing PWL team. The box set is a very nice tribute to the London Boys themselves, Dennis Fuller and Edem Ephraim, who sadly passed away in a car accident in 1996. May their music live on forever.
