Video: Le Kid - Physical

Swedish pop group Le Kid competed in Melodifestivalen 2011, the Swedish pre-selection to the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Oh My God", which I found a bit disappointing. I had expected something more electronic. But now, they're back with the brand new single "Physical", and I totally love the electro sound! I hope they'll make more songs like this one.

"Physical" is out now on iTunes and Spotify.

Video: Paris Hilton - Good Time

I'm one of few who actually enjoyed Paris Hilton's 2006 pop album. Sure, she's not a great singer and her voice is probably all Auto-Tune. But what can I say? I love trashy dance-pop music as long as the sound is good! And Paris just released the brand new single "Good Time", a wonderfully plastic dance track, featuring Lil Wayne. Check out the video down below.

I hope Paris will release a whole dance album! Meanwhile, "Good Time" is available on iTunes and Spotify.

Synthpop deluxe

New CD's in my record collection: Maxi-singles "Be With You", "I Could Fall In Love With You", "Fill Us With Fire" and "When I Start To (Break It All Down)" by Erasure, the B-side compilation "Format" by Pet Shop Boys, and Vanbot's debut album.

Vanbot - Vanbot

Silent Hill 2 Soundtrack

This arrived yesterday, straight from Japan. It's the beautiful and scary soundtrack for the "Silent Hill 2" video game, by Akira Yamaoka. I fell in love with the music when I first saw the 2006 movie. My personal favourites are "Promise (Reprise)", "Magdalene", "Laura Plays The Piano", "Theme Of Laura (Reprise)" and "White Noiz".

This amazing soundtrack is available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Glen Vella - Lie

Do you remember pop singer Glen Vella? He represented Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song "One Life". But I want to recommend his 2012 single "Lie". This modern dance-pop track is a lot better than "One Life" in my opinion, and would have done better in the contest. I'm looking forward to more tracks like this from Mr. Vella.

"Lie" is available to buy on iTunes.

Video: Little Boots - Shake

I'm a big fan of British pop singer Little Boots and her electronic music. Check out the brand new video for her single "Shake". The track is taken from the album "Nocturnes", out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.
