Tanlines’ New Website Is A Funny Netflix Parody

I'm a music obsessive who listens, writes, and breathes the stuff for a living, and even I would rather surf Netflix most days than sift through the detritus of a band's website.

Tanlines – “Invisible Ways”

Tanlines already asserted that there would be "lots and lots of guitars on their sophomore album Highlights, and they weren't kidding. Their first new single "Slipping Away" funneled understated melancholy through a chirpy web of guitars, but "Invisible Ways" lopes slowly along, Eric Emm's morose voice flanked by mournful harmonies. It's far more America tha… More »

Tanlines – “Slipping Away”

We haven't heard from Tanlines since their debut full-length, 2012's Mixed Emotions, but Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm are back in full force this year. "Slipping Away," the lead single from the Brooklyn duo's new album Highlights, builds on the tropical, wistful vibes of their previous work while pushing farther into traditional guitars-and-drums territory. But… More »

Coachella 2013 Weekend 2: Sunday’s 5 Best Things

The common refrain about Coachella dictates: "It's not about the music, man, it's about the festival experience." With the dance/sex tents in full swing, dozens of corporate-sponsored hideaways at every corner offering shade and mild distraction in exchange for a few minutes of direct advertising access to your brain, and the untamed wilderness of the… More »

Coachella 2013 Sunday: Wu-Tang Clan, Grimes, Jessie Ware, & More

SpaceGhostPurrp doesn't really scream Sunday brunch hour entertainment, but he and his crew Raider Klan were one of the acts to kick off Day 3 of Coachella. Yet, he, Key Nyata, and the whole lot of them sold the kind of menace that is better suited for a dark club than beaming sun rays and… More »

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then -- folk, folk, and nothing but folk --… More »

Tanlines Remix Gotye (Stereogum Premiere)

It would seem that mutli-chart-topping pop star Gotye is not content with mere multi-chart-topping pop-star status, or at least will not be until you have a seat at the table. To wit: remix strategy 2012, via which he courts you by commissioning artists from your iPod to reshape his material into a mold more your… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Tom's on his way to NYC's Pop Conference -- here's his event, a panel about mixtapes, which he knows a little bit about -- so I'm filling in today on the video beat. Even if he was around, he's still probably overstimulated from that dizzying best K-Pop videos list he put together yesterday. Anyway, let'… More »

Tanlines – “All Of Me” Video

The minds behind Adult Swim have given us a new music video for "All Of Me," the effervescent synthpop jam from Tanlines. In the clip, a room full of blank-faced senior citizens watches a VHS tape of the Brooklyn duo performing the song, then gets up to dance mechanically. The Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt star… More »
