Disco From Iowa?

As my recent disco songs list proves, I have a soft spot for the much-maligned music of my youth, cheesy as it is. It’s in that spirit that I can wholeheartedly recommend the music of Tex From Iowa, a solo dance artist whose tunes are as ebullient and insinuating as classic Erasure, themselves profoundly influenced by ABBA.

Tex has released several songs on his own website and all are available as Creative Commons downloads, including the brand new single, “Heart Over Mind,” a Ray Price cover that replaces the country swing with a driving dance beat to excellent results.

My personal favorite, however, is still “Back On The Farm,” a rural-themed love song that the Zynga folks ought to license for their ultra-popular Farmville game immediately. To hear all of Tex From Iowa’s music, go to www.texfromiowa.com

Here’s a hilariously minimal video for one of the tunes you’ll find there:
