Levimuusika



I am way, way overdue sharing another selection of the newer music that I have located via the wonder of the interweb recently. And so without further ado, and in the words of the immortal Ida Barr, let's "pump up the wireless!"

Always sassy, always welcome - house favourite Luciana is back again, continuing her "world domination tour" with another new stomper - U B The Bass. Magnificently odd video, too!



Keeping up the beats, here's the artist known as Warren Nomi (no relation to the fantabulosa Klaus Nomi, to my knowledge), and his new disco-tinged dancefloor number The Rush:



He also sometimes goes by the name "Nomi Madness", and among his more arty projects is a rather fabulous video montage for this song, French Kisses - a slice of camp genius!



The artist occasionally known as Bimbo Boy, Dennis Alexis Hellström has recently formed a new musical outfit called Eurotix. Among the several tracks they have so far is this rather excellent track, Decadence. Very 80s!



Rather catchy indeed is the new collaboration between Armand Deluxe and a previously-featured artist here at Dolores Delargo Towers SirPaul - Touch Me is released on 21st April:



"You love the 70s but I'm a 90s bitch!" go the lyrics. To me, however, the newly released single (new for the UK, at least) by Icona Pop (featuring another vocalist we have featured here before, Charli XCX) sounds more than reminiscent of Plastic Bertrand's Ça Plane Pour Moi. No bad thing, of course - I Love It:



To compare and contrast, here's Mr Bertrand himself (well, not quite - the vocals were actually performed by the record's producer Lou Deprijck) from 1978:



Ready for some old-school gay porn? Well, who am I to refuse? - here's the Tom of Finland-inspired video by former-pornstar-turned-singer Mr Colton Ford for his new single Let Me Live Again, featuring at least one of Mr Ford's real-life boyfriends. The song itself is rather catchy and is apparently doing well in the US dance charts...



While we're at it, it's time for a bit of smutty kitsch drag methinks... Eternal thanks to the lovely Henry at Barbarella's Galaxy once again for this one - it's Willam Belli, Detox and Vicky Vox with their soon-to-be-a-classic Boy Is A Bottom:



And finally, the totty! Part protest song (against the anti-gay laws that are creeping in across Eastern Europe), part-porno video, our favourite houseboys Kazaky are back with their Depeche Mode influenced new song Crazy Law. Wiggle it, boys!



As always, enjoy, dears - and be sure to let me know what you think...

  1. The last couple of months have been very, very boring IMO and very few new songs that I have heard have captured my attention.

    I have tried to like Icona Pop but it is just not happening. The Luciana and Colton tracks sound a bit stale, but I do like the Kazaky track. I obviously love "Boy Is A Bottom" and I very much enjoyed both the Warren Nomi tracks.

    As always, a treat.

    1. Neither of us have found a huge amount of new music to post about, it seems. Unless you happen to like The Saturdays, or rap, or both (I don't, of course), the musical world is very empty indeed. Jx

  2. Very much so! I have mostly been listening to older stuff lately, especially from the late 70s/early 80s. But with new albums on the way from the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Kylie and Ladytron, things are bound to pick up soon...

    Oh, and I don't enjoy most of the crappy chart music these days either. The Saturdays? Little Mix? One Direction? I think we are bound for a musical revolution, although in the age of digital I doubt it will happen. The singles that sell are pretty much only what appeals to 12 year olds, along with some classics that were horrible mangled on some TV "talent" show the night before. Such a sad state.
