Erasure Offer A Little Respect (HMI Redux) to Support LGBTQ Youth

I make no bones about my love for Erasure, and yes I've told the story time and time again about how I was raised super conservative Catholic, etc... yet my dad loved all up on the duo and in turn, we now find this beast able to sing along to every word of every song from 'em. So in getting word that Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have come together again with a special refix of one of their most popular hits, and to top it off, it's done to support a youth community in need of some extra hugs and lovin', well, color me ecstatic.




Proceeds from the track will be donated to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization, provides a safe and supportive environment to all young people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity so that they can achieve their full potential. 


A Little Respect (HMI Redux) features a youth chorus from the Hetrick-Martin Institute who also appear in the music video, directed by filmmaker Jason Stein.

Andy Bell - Call On Me (Hey Champ Remix)

Today's "just because" post comes courtesy of Pete, of the super-rad band Hey Champ. I don't think dude knows how much I love Erasure, and what with Andy Bell of the famed electropop duo off releasing solo material, this fits nicely into my Beastly-rapport. 



That said, Pete sent an email with the mix, and while I'd already once or twice received from various outlets, his message hit me at the right time and frame of mind to enjoy Hey Champ's fun and disco-sampling, club-ready mix of Bell's single, Call On Me.


Just because it's oh so good...and now you all know of my Erasure-affinity, as if I hadn't already expressed that multiple times in these pages prior.


High fives!
