alpine come down

16 Mar

I spent last night learning how to make beer with my sister and future brother-in-law. Thus a short and hoppy post, brewed with love.

Today’s Indie: Coming Down / Bon Iver (Anais Mitchell cover)

‘I never laughed so loud / I never laughed so loud / I think I’m coming down’

Bon Iver presents the perfect song to accompany this Friday morning’s feel after our fourth consecutive day of rain here in the Bay, cut by my own sniffles and a sleep blanketed head. Justin Vernon could bring me to my knees with a rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Star, so hearing him sing something new that is so soft and simple and strong is the perfect pick me up. This is the first I have heard of his friend and collaborator Anais Mitchell, but her original take is pretty rainy day worthy as well. #indie

Today’s Untz: Hands / Alpine (Goldroom remix)

‘it’s ok to feel the ring on my hands, my love, my enemy’

LA’s Goldroom, aka Josh Legg has gotten a lot of playtime on TUATI, and for good reason. In addition to contributing regular posts on Binary Entertainment’s blog, he creates totally swoon worthy indie pop remixes. Today’s dreamy blend of snow and sand is off of six-piece Aussie group Alpine’s Hands. #untz

pirate doves

16 Nov

Little time for music this week as I have started reading this little series you may have heard of called The Hunger Games, and suddenly am totally unable to pry myself away from hundreds of pages of young adult fiction… some hybrid of Twilight minus the vampires, Harry Potter minus the magic, and Survivor except with teenagers as the contestants who are fighting till the death a la Lord of the Flys. God help me.

Today’s Emo: Wicked Games /¬†Coeur De Pirate (The Weeknd cover)

‘bring your love / baby I can bring my shame / bring the drugs / baby I can bring my pain’

Coeur de Pirate (French for Pirate Heart) is a Canadian born singer named Beatrice Martin. Beatrice hails from Quebec and sings mostly in French (check out Les Amoures Devouees, delightful gibberish to my ears), but she puts her dirty pirate mouth to work on this cover of The Weeknd’s Wicked Games in Ingles. It is brilliant to hear such a gentle, soft voice emitting such gritty language, and while I imagine her singing it with a smirk on her face, she carries the somber tune with sincerity until the very end, when we catch a glimmer of giggles. #emo

Today’s Untz: Mother Protect / Niki & the Doves (Goldroom remix)

‘I used to follow you, follow you for days / I slept beside you, just shadows away’

I have been lusting over this song on Hypem all week only to discover yesterday that the remix artist Goldroom is the main writer for my new blog crush, Binary. New as in I have only just become acquainted and started devouring its content new, the blog has been around for some time now. Highly recommend, as with this track. #untz
