I love indie music – pop, dance, rock, folk. My boyfriend loves untz- unicorn disco, space base, neptune jamz, luvstep… While I originally started TUATI on my own, we have decided to combine our passions and share what we each love on the blog. I will continue to post the indie, but Tom will take over the untz. Ying and yang, head and heart, rest and play, everything is covered. Musical bliss.
Today’s Indie: Verona / Geographer
‘you call me all the right words but the right words sound so wrong / you say that I’m changing, I guess I will before too long’
Throw back Monday because I haven’t had time to dig through the week’s new stuff, and because Verona has been running in my head on loop all weekend. While this SF trio has been around for a few years now, they are the best band to happen to me this year, and fittingly introduced to me by new blog partner. This track is off the band’s earlier album, Animal Shapes, and what draws me in like so many of their songs is lead Michael Deni’s vocals. At the start there is patience in his sound, like he is purposefully keeping himself distant, but then in the chorus he sweeps into something more vulnerable and intimate before pulling away again. So fitting given the lyrics… great stuff. #indie / tory
Today’s Untz: Inspector Norse / Todd Terje
Following a string of celebrated releases, Todd Terje of Oslo, Norway, has been leaning on everything from kitschy euro sounds to deep funk and latin jazz. He’s relatively new to the scene, but has already made his mark within dance music circuits. I can’t quite recall where I’ve heard this first track before, but I assume it’s on one of the many mixes I listen to. Go check out his soundcloud. #untz / tom
