These two songs could not be more opposite…. the beauty of TUATI.
Today’s Indie: Turning Page / Sleeping at Last
‘if I had only seen how you smile when you blush / or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough’
A sleepy happy love song because it is Friday and beautiful out with even warmer weather ahead and this city is filled with people in good spirits opening doors for one another, smiling, and saying hello… the kind of energy you can soak in.
I have liked this song for a while now but felt conflicted about sharing it because I discovered it via a Twilight movie (hey it was a rainy Thanksgiving break back in Oregon and my sister needed company). Ultimately though, good music is good music, and this is a gem of a song about the kind of love you want to shout about across mountains (or in the movie’s case, across species and generations). Wheaton, Illinois’ Sleeping at Last’s Ryan O’Neal wrote the song exclusively for the film. Obviously Team Edward. #indie/tory
Today’s Untz: Brazilian Rhyme / Earth Wind & Fire (Vodoo Farm Dubstep remix)
So today’s tune is aggressive and that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Voodoo Farm and I go way back. From a lead singer/rapper of a funk band, Stealing From Bandits, to a freaky dubstep producer, my buddy Liam Dirlam has done it all. He’s been making splashes back east, but beware west coast… he’s coming for you.
