I've got some catching up posts to do to make up for songs I should have written about over the past few months but just never got around to. Starting us off is Sweden's Cloetta Paris. The duo is often written about in reference to their underground-level italo-disco music which has led to them becoming a blog favorite often mentioned in the same sentence as Sally Shapiro. You could just as easily compare her latest single, "You And Me By The Stereo," to a toned down version of Annie's cosmic electro-pop "Songs Remind Me Of You," though. Still, the music may not bite in the same way as that Annie song, but the vocals, though still delicate, are just a little less slight--or maybe just a little warmer--a welcome difference. Somehow the song seems to have created much less buzz online than their earlier work, but it's definitely worthy of a little more love.
To buy Cloetta Paris's latest single "You And Me By The Stereo," go here (digital).
Next up: maybe I'll finally write about Erik Hassle's album or that Swedish pop-rock or that German dance-pop song I've mentioned several times.
