Tanlines Streaming New Album Highlights Via Conference Call

It’s kind of miraculous at this late date, but somehow Tanlines are finding ways to make album rollouts fun. First they turned their website into a funny Netflix parody, and this Wednesday they’re streaming their new album Highlights via conference call. The news arrived from their publicist in the form of one of those Google Calendar event invites that always make me cringe. Usually I’d feel like a shill for copying and pasting an entire press release, but in this instance I’d feel like I wasn’t doing them justice unless I shared the whole thing:

BROOKLYN, New York, May 5, 2015 /Press Here Publicity/ — Tanlines Enterprises, Inc. (the “Band”) today announce that it will stream their upcoming album, “Highlights,” via teleconference in anticipation of the album’s May 19th global release date on True Panther Sounds.

About Tanlines Enterprises, Inc.
Tanlines – singer/guitarist Eric Emm and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Cohen – will release their sophomore album, Highlights, on May 19th, 2015. Produced by the band and Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Highlights began in a basement in Pittsburgh and ended in a church in Brooklyn. It trades world music sounds (as heard through YouTube) for a more alive, realized approach, the result of Emm and Cohen wanting to break from their ‘two guys, one screen’ writing style. Influenced by their time spent on the road touring Mixed Emotions, primarily in the States, they reached for the sounds of 90’s New York hip-hop drums, Detroit techno synths, and lots and lots of guitars. The results of which would lead them to call this their ‘American album’, “though it may only sound that way to us,” says Emm. Whereas before the band had wandered their way through foreign musical landscapes and the existential ‘what am I doing with my life’ wasteland of post-youth, Highlights finds the band settled and at home, comfortable in their own skin.
