Today’s Untz: Knew You Well (Eight Bit Tiger Remix) / Cultfever

Eight Bit Tiger is an electronic dance duo from Chicago composed of the Widman brothers, Erik and Kent. The experiment began 15 years ago when the brothers started playing music together in a bedroom in northern Sweden and has mutated into a radioactive sonic isotope. Eight Bit Tiger is a new side project from their indie rock band Love in October.

“We have been gravitating to making dance music the past year and we wanted to get a fresh start with a new sound, so it made sense to us to start a new project”

Most of their music I’ve listened to is heavily influenced by 80’s style synths with a touch of some 70’s funk. I’ve liked most of what I’ve heard. This new remix certainly has a reggae vibe to it that I’m loving. It adds a harder yet summery feel to the original which is great too. Tory wrote about the original back in October before I started contributing although you can see my influence starting to creep in. #untz/tom

Let’s pretend that we are on a space ship
And I was given just one lowly envelope.
And we intuit what this guide will make us
As a rule we know we’re never going home.

28 Oct

Favorite Halloween costume idea: a shirt that says “October 28th.” When people ask what you are, say “Last Friday night.” Happy Friday, happy trick and treating.

Today’s Emo: Knew You Well / Cultfever

‘and we try we dont get it and all along we forget its just the two of us here and we’re alone’

New electro pop duo, Cultfever, provides the perfect opus to roll us into the weekend. Robust sound with a bite of strong female vocals reminds me of Metric, and its matched perfectly with sprawling, celestial synth. Roller coaster of sound in my ears. Like another New York based male/female team, Cults, Brooklyn’s Tamara Jafar and J Peter Furniaks have been gaining serious buzz online, and I can see why. Knewyouwell is off of their first album, set for release on Tuesday the 1st. Enjoy. And then enjoy again and again and again. #emo

 Today’s Untz: Understand the Sky / Future Rock remix

Found this track, as I find most of my favorite less known electronic music, from my friend Tom’s blog. Keeping with today’s celestial sounding stuff, Future Rock’s remix of Understand the Sky has a slightly out of this world glean to it that has been getting me through the end of the week. The Chicago based trio is supposedly magical live, so hope they travel West. #untz
