A short but magical weekend, capped off with tubing down the Russian River on Sunday afternoon. Want to be back there now…
Today’s Emo: I Didn’t Want to Make Out (I wanted to kiss) / Long Walks on the Beach
‘I didn’t want to make out / I wanted to touch your lips with mine / to see if I could change our minds’
Long Walks on the Beach was featured in my second TUATE post ever, so I’m excited to share more of his stuff seven months down the line after happily stumbling upon him on Hypem the other day. Singsongy, clap along beats, slick vocals, and sliding xylophone notes make I Didn’t Want to Make Out a perfect summer driving song… windows down, speakers up, hand out the window rolling into little hills with the wind.
The song sounds decidedly California, but Fritz Kramer is doing his long walks on the other coast out in DC. There is something so endearing in the sentiment of wanting a simple kiss instead of a steamy make out session to reconnect… smitten on this song all over again. #emo
Today’s Untz: I’ll Get You / Classixx (Gigamesh remix)
‘do you like bass / do you do you like bass’
An oldie but a goodie, we listened to this track to wake up on a sleepy drive home from Yosemite a couple weekends ago and I was reminded of how great Classixx can be… I saw them kill it at Mission Rock last winter. Gilgamesh smooths things out while keeping the catchy chorus intact in his remix. Yes guys I like bass. I love bass. #untz
