By LadyDot – December 2022
I’ll honestly admit to you that November was a very hard month for me – I really had a lot of work at the music label and produced a lot of CDs and vinyls. But the satisfaction was really great! I have the same feeling whenever I write Electro Swing News for you. To prepare an article like this, I have to do a very thorough research, which of course takes some time.
And once I’ve written it, I’m so happy to share with you what I’ve just found out about Electro Swing, the artists and their successes, and what fantastic singles I’ve discovered (and probably wouldn’t have done if it wasn’t for keeping a close eye on the information posted on social media). Read, listen, get inspired and see how many different things are happening in the Electro Swing world! :)
LVDS is working on their second album! “Golden Days”, which is an album released in December 2020, totally wowed me. Quite simply, the songs on this album inspired me to such an extent that I decided to write my first review. And it was this review that contributed to my collaboration with Electro Swing Thing just one month later! :) So I can’t wait for the next LVDS album – we’ll have to wait a bit longer, as the release won’t be until the 31st of March, but I think it’s definitely worth the patience!
November in Poland was really crazy when it came to the weather. The first half of November – very warm and sunny. The second half – grey, gloomy, frosty and… snowy.
Luckily, thanks to music, it’s still cheerful in my house and I don’t have time to wallow in the autumn gloom. Today I have for you a list of Electro Swing singles that were just released in November. I have rated the songs on a scale: one heart – I like it. Two hearts – I like it a lot. Three hearts: the track is brilliant!
♥♥ Speakeasy Streets – “Brooklyn Cats” – this track premiered on 27 October and I have no idea how I could have left it out of the last part of Electro Swing News, because it’s really very good!
♥♥ Chanterelle – “Dim Dim Didim” – 1st November
♥♥♥! Lamuzgueule – “Ascendant Brasier” – 4th November
♥♥♥ Masha Ray – “Roulette” – 4th November
♥♥♥ LVDS – “Rum & Coke” – 11st November
♥♥ Little Violet & Alfredo Rey and His Orchestra – “Like a Virgin” – 11st November
♥♥ Betty Booom & Retronic – “The Beat Goes On” – 18th November
♥♥♥! Balduin & Wolfgang Lohr (feat. J Fitz) – “Magic Man” – 18th November
♥♥♥ Moira – “Limonade” (Klischée Remix) – 18th November
♥♥ Yuna Okada – “LOVE” – 25th November
♥♥♥ The Soulmate Project & Might be Vero – “Laisse-Toi Tomber” – 25th November
This month we had two really hot album premieres. In a nutshell:
→ 18th November saw the release of ‘Welcome to the World’, by French band Jive Me. Their first album, which was simply ‘Jive Me’, was a real Electro Swing bomb! This latest CD, on the other hand, is pure electronic music, combined with rich instrumentation and fantastic, charming and incredibly original vocals. I am already listening to this album for the third time, how about you? :)
→ Madam Misfit’s album ‘Pandora’s Box’ was released on 21 November. As we know, in mythology, Pandora’s box symbolised the accumulation of problems and misfortunes. However, it turns out that there is still… hope at the bottom of it. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait until the very end of the album to find out, because there is a message, a depth in each of them… And all this with the addition of really good music, fantastic melodic rapping and that distinctive, specific sense of humour that Madam Misfit spreads around!
This time I’m not going to give you my top three most listened to Electro Swing tracks. Why? Because, as you may have noticed, in my ranking of premiere singles, I rated them all with two or three hearts. However, two of them received three hearts with an exclamation mark. And guess what? These are the songs I listened to the most in November (when it comes to Electro Swing, of course :)).
We are of course talking about Balduin & Wolfgang Lohr (feat. J Fitz) – ‘Magic Man’ and Lamuzgueule – ‘Ascendant Brasier’. But if I had to choose the one I listened to over and over again, it would definitely be Lamuzgueule’s single. I love this track and I think you will love it too.
Kisses! Your LadyDot
