Both today’s untz and emo come via guest post from my coworker and friend. Court manages to send me dozens of songs I have already heard on a regular basis, but whenever he shares something I haven’t caught yet it typically ends up on repeat. Two such tracks below… I am especially digging the female vocals on the untz. His post comes with perfect timing as I am still too tired from traveling and my return to reality to muster up anything of significance on my own today.
Thanks C! Also… oh hai February, where did you come from?
Today’s Emo: Love Interruption / Jack White
‘I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me / anymore’
I’m glad there’s a first time for everything because ladies and gentlemen, the first Jack White solo project has finally arrived. Whether or not Blunderbuss, White’s forthcoming album due out in April, was an accidental mistake or not, the fact is that it’s finally here. “Love Interruption” is the first single off of the album and if this track is indicative of the rest of Blunderbuss’ recordings, it’s safe to say that 2012 will be quite the auspicious year for Jack.
They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. Jack White has walked that line a lot lately and, while he’s stated that nothing on this upcoming album reflects any individual person, it’s hard to believe that his recent divorce from Karen Elson didn’t give him a little lyrical ammunition. Whatever the inspiration, keep it coming brotha. #emo
Today’s Untz: In My Mind / Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl ft. Georgi Kay (Axwell Remix)
‘the dreams we have / the love we share / this is what we’re waiting for’
A friend of mine from Perth first introduced me to fellow Australian singer, Georgi Kay, about a year ago. The moment she opened her mouth, it was love at first listen. Almost a year later and her voice still makes my knees buckle. Add in some samples from Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” and Coldplay’s “Clocks,” along with the genius production of Ivan Gough (the better half of the TV Rock duo) and you’ve got a tune that will put me into an untz coma. Now that Axwell has put his sweet Swedish hands on it, I can’t keep my feet on the ground. #untz – Court
