Eurotix - Hypnotized (EP)

Artwork by Jimmy Dyrebrant
Mine and Larry Forsberg's synthpop project Eurotix recently released the brand new digital EP "Hypnotized". The title track is a synthpop number dedicated to classic movie icon Donna Reed, best known for her roles in movies such as "It's A Wonderful Life", "From Here To Eternity" and "The Last Time I Saw Paris". She also played Miss Ellie on "Dallas" for one season. Both me and Larry love Donna so we thought she deserved a song of her own.

The EP also includes three bonus tracks: The danceable "Just Another Night" was originally a demo recorded by Bunny X for Melodifestivalen (the Swedish pre-selection to the Eurovision Song Contest) but it didn't go all the way. "Call It Summer" is a song about the Swedish summer with a small nod to ABBA and "He'll Be Home For Christmas 2018" is a much needed update to our first ever Christmas song. The sound och all the tracks is as always inspired by eighties synthpop music.

Listen to the whole EP down under. Please support us by buying or streaming it. "Hypnotized" is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK, Amazon US, Google Play and more. You can order our CD albums from our official store.

"Hypnotized" tracklist:

1. Hypnotized
2. Just Another Night
3. Call It Summer
4. He'll Be Home For Christmas 2018

Sigala & Kylie Minogue - What You Waiting For

My idol, the fabulous Kylie Minogue, has just released a new song together with DJ and producer Sigala. The song "What You Waiting For" is a delicious dance-pop/house track. As much as I enjoy the songs on Kylies latest album "Golden", I would have preferred the album having this house-ish production over the country stuff.

Check out the lyric video down below and be sure to buy the song, available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and more. For audiophiles, a WAV file can be bought from Beatport.

Marcus & Martinus - Invited

Normally, I'm not too fond of singing kids, so I haven't heard much of Marcus & Martinus' early music. However, their new single "Invited" is right up my alley. It's a modern dance-pop track with an electronic sound. I especially like the chorus, they are so catchy. And their voices have matured too. I'm going to give their other songs a chance too.

Check out the video down below. The song is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and more.

Sakis Rouvas - Shake It (Marsheaux Radio Mix)

I often find that certain remixes make songs much better. That is the case with Greek singer Sakis Rouvas song "Shake It (Marsheaux Radio Mix)". The original version was the official Greek entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2004. I saw the show on TV and thought the song itself was quite entertaining, but it wasn't too special.

But then I discovered the remix by Greek synthpop duo Marsheaux and fell in love. I still listen to it regularly. The electronic eighties sound does wonders for the song. Listen to the remix down below.

You can find the track on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK, Amazon US, Google Play and more.

Quest - Got Me Good (Queer-friendly boyband)

Song of the day is "Got Me Good" by the new Swedish boyband Quest consisting of Oscar Landgren, Marvin Arnet, Isak Sköld and Alexander Malinao. What makes this band so unique is that they're queer-friendly, with two openly gay members and gender neutral lyrics that everyone can relate to. We sure need more of that.

Plus, the song, produced by Alexander Laitila and Andreas Krüger, is a great mixture of modern pop and R&B, just the way we like it. Check out the video down below and support the song by getting it on iTunes, Amazon UK, Amazon US or streaming it on Spotify.

Margot Kidder has died

Photo: United Artists, 1969
I was so sad to hear that Canadian-born actress Margot Kidder has passed away, sixty-nine years old. I was a big fan of her work. I first started following her career as a kid, watching the "Superman" movies. Lois Lane was my favourite character and made me interested in journalism.

As a teen, I started watching horror movies and fell madly in love with the classics "Black Christmas" (1974) and "The Amityville Horror" (1976) which both starred Margot. Her character in the former, the loud-mouthed Barb, is still one of my favourite movie characters of all time.

It was also great to see her in a small but memorable role on the amazing TV series "Brothers & Sisters", playing a dear friend of Sally Field's character Nora. As an adult, I also learned that Margot voiced the character of Gaia in the animated series "Captain Planet And The Planeteers" which I had loved as a kid.

To me, Margot always came off as being strong and independent, never afraid to speak up against injustices. I was glad to read that she was a supporter of LGBT rights and an anti-war advocate. Rest in peace, Margot. You will be greatly missed.

I would like to end with a funny 2008 quote by Margot, taken from the LGBT publication The Advocate.
"I'm not choosy at all! I'll do practically anything. I'm the biggest whore on the block. I live in a little town in Montana, and you have to drag me out of here to get to L.A., so I'm not readily available. But unless it's something sexist or cruel, I just love to work. I've done all sorts of things, but you just haven't seen them because they're often very bad and shown at 4 in the morning."

Pseudo Echo - Love An Adventure (Re-release)

On May 25, Cherry Pop Records will release a remastered and expanded reissue of the 1987 album "Love An Adventure" by Australian pop band Pseudo Echo. The album includes the smash hit "Funky Town". Also included are a couple of their earlier songs, like the brilliant synthpop singles "A Beat For You" and "Listening", in remixed and rerecorded versions.

I really like this band and can't wait for the reissue. Let's hope for a proper digital remaster of their 1984 album "Autumnal Park" too. It's their best one in my opinion.
