By LadyDot – November 2023
October was a month of many various musical surprises. Artists released a whole host of fantastic Halloween Electro Swing singles, I prepared an interview with Parov Stelar especially for you (if you haven’t read it yet, you can do so HERE), and there’s new news on social media about winter-spring tour dates. As I do every month, I’ve prepared for you Electro Swing News 14: quick news, my ratings of new singles and plenty of musical recommendations. It is my pleasure to invite you to read the 14th article in the Electro Swing News series! 😊
Don’t ask how I did it, but I found out that…. Caravan Palace will release a new album in spring 2024! And mind you, it’s not exactly a rumour, because it’s true! :) It’s been 4 years since the release of the “Chronologic” album (I love it!), so I’m waiting all the more with excitement and curiosity for more information on the matter, and when I find out anything else, I promise to let you know!
October is a truly Halloween month, so it couldn’t be more different and the vast majority of new tracks released are in this spooky mood. I’ve already picked out my favourite Halloween tracks, so if you want to find out which songs I like best, be sure to read my Halloween Favs review (HERE). In the meantime, I invite you to my monthly ratings of newly released singles. Do you remember my rating scale? One heart – I like it. Two hearts – I like it a lot. Three hearts: the song is brilliant!

I listened to a lot of Halloween songs in October, but it was Lamuzgueule’s single this month that stole my heart, with ‘PANIC ROOM’ very often in my headphones and speakers. 😉 I also revisited Moonlight Breakfast’s album ‘Shout’, from which comes the fantastic Electro Swing track ‘Champagne’. And Mr. Ours and ProleteR’s swing hop track ‘Feelin’ Hot’ released in September this year rocked me enough to join the list of those three tracks I couldn’t imagine October evenings without.

Anna (LadyDot) was born in ’94, but always felt she came from the Golden Twenties. “Polka” in Polish means “girl from Poland”, so she’s “Polka in polka dots”. She loves vintage style and spontaneous travels around Europe. But her greatest love (apart from her husband) is of course music, especially Electro Swing, Funk, Swing Hop and French Electronic Music.
Anna works at a Polish music label, where she coordinates the physical production of CDs and vinyl records. Music is therefore not only her passion, but also her job!
