Today’s Indie: Only the Horses / Scissor Sisters
‘and if this is the end / the best place I’ve ever been’
Scissor Sisters have fallen off my radar for a while now, but instantly grabbed my attention with this new single off their upcoming album, Magic Hour. There is a bit of untz in today’s indie because the track is traceably produced by Calvin Harris with some help from Boys Noize’s Alex Ridha. So cheery, so catchy, wild horses couldn’t keep me away. The perfect Monday morning fix. #indie/tory
Today’s Untz: Can’t Live Without Music / MAM
‘they can take my life, but they can’t take my pride/ they say music died, but they lied’
As I’m gearing up for Coachella this week, I think it makes sense that I post a song relevant to not just a festival, but to music in general. Music is art. Music is life. I can’t live without it and wouldn’t want to imagine a world without it.
MAM, which consists of producers Matt Hughes and Miguel Campbell, brings us today’s track appropriately titled, “Can’t Live Without Music.” I instantly am reminded of Daft Punk. The house and funk sounds in this sexy, funky tune remind me specifically of “Something About Us.” I don’t think there is much you can say after that comparison… the ultimate compliment. #untz/tom
