Finally!! New music from Tanlines! Their debut is one of my most anticipated albums of the year and here’s a new song from it. It’s great. I love them. I love you!

Tanlines – Brothers

Tanlines are currently on tour in Europe, where they just released their first album/compilation Volume On. The CD-release (ignore the misleading album cover above) features many songs already released in other places, and some that aren’t. You can stream the whole thing over on SoundCloud NOW (because you’re not from Europe, obviously).

This is a really fun track from the group Restless People, which features both members of Tanlines. The sound is pretty similar to Tanlines, actually, but amped up a lot more. And with more sirens.

Here’s the video for the track, directed byPetra Cortright.



Sweat Dreams: May

It’s no secret that I haven’t been updating this blog so much recently, but I don’t really have a good excuse other than that I haven’t been really wanting too. That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped listening to music, which is pretty much the opposite of true. So to compensate for a crappy period of blogging, I’m upping this mix that I’m hoping to do monthly called Sweat Dreams. The tracklist for the first installment is below. Be sure to look around or ask about artists on the mix!

♫ Sweat Dreams (May Mix)

Caribou – Odessa (Nite Jewel Remix)
Miracles Club – Light of Love
Delorean – Come Wander
Tanlines – New Flowers
Silver Columns – Always On
Greco Roman – Party Rhythm
Lemonade – Lifted
Small Black – Despicable Dogs (Washed Out Remix)
Wild Nothing – The Witching Hour
The Radio Dept. – Memory Loss
Twin Sister – The Other Side of Your Face

I hadn’t heard much about True Panther’s band Tanlines other than a remix they did for Au Revoir Simone’s “Shadows” which I dug a lot. Well they released a new EP today, Settings that features six tropical songs that really make me wish it were summer right now! Below is one of the standout tracks from the EP and a remix. You can buy the EP here or at your local record store.

♫ Real Life

♫ Real Life (Basic Needs Remix)

You can catch Tanlines at SXSW this year at the True Panther part with Delorean, Lemonade, Hunx & His Punx and many other bands that are making me regret not being able to go to Austin this year.
