Today’s Indie: Clair De Lune / Flight Facilities ft. Christine Hoberg 

‘don’t go / tell me that the lights won’t change / tell me that it will stay the same’

A stretching of strings leads into Clair De Lune, met with distant echoed vocals slowly making their way closer, pulling you further into the track until you get lost.  Flight Facilities’ Clair De Lune was one of the standout tracks that came out while we were in Asia in November, and I am finally catching up with a belated but loving post.

The track is more mellow and bedroom bound than the Australians’ usual antics, and I am loving this revelation of their softer side, especially with the silvery vocals etched throughout. The collaboration proves again that the duo is really good at partnering with killer songstresses – Christine Hoberg sounds right up there with Crave You’s Gisselle. #indie/tory

Today’s Untz: With You Feat. Grovesnor / Flight Facilities

Flight Facilities have a brand new single called ‘With You’ featuring the Hot Chip drummer Grovesnor on vocals and it’s superb.

The Syndey duo has been all over the place since 2010’s single ‘Crave You’ which featured vocals from Giselle. They’ve also had tremendous success with fabulously done remixes from some of our favorites: Holy Ghost! and Cut Copy. And who can forget ‘Foreign Language feat. Jess’ in 2011. So needless to say, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this release which you can grab today!

There are a ton of really great supporting remixes too. Danny Daze does his thing per usual, but my favorite is the recently blogged about duo, MAM, which add an extra layer of oozing disco summertime boogie. The original and MAM remix will be on repeat for some time and I’m sure this track will soon be remixed by everyone and their mother because who could possibly  NOT touch this one. #untz/tom

Friday doesn’t feel like Friday when you know you have to go to work on Saturday. Exhausted. Music to the rescue?

Today’s Emo: Coming Down / Dum Dum Girls

‘by tomorrow I’ll be gone / if you wanna tell me something / you had better make it strong’

Coming Down has an effervescent, Wild Horses couldn’t keep me away kind of feel to it, where things start to slow down around you when you listen. I am finding myself totally bewitched by these California ladies’ new single, off their sophomore album, Only Dreams, out September 27th via my favorite label, Sub Pop.

Lead singer Dee Dee (Kristin Gundred) has the chops and songwriting strength of Cat Power, and this song sounds dangerously close to one of my favorite Mazzy Star songs, Fade Into You. I could imagine it being played in one of those epic montages at the end of an episode of House, instilling a lingering feeling of letting go and finality. Not the best upper for a Friday, but worth a dozen listens nonetheless. #emo

Today’s Untz: Crave You / Flight Facilities (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)

‘why can’t you want me like the other boys do / they stare at me while I stare at you’

Sultry vocals and a very self assured young lady who considers herself to be dripping in gold get untzified via dubstep duo Adventure Club’s dance worthy antics. Flight Facilities present that age old problem of finding oneself amidst a bevy of suitors (life is tough) yet only attracted to the one person who could care less, and Adventure Club really nails the remix, taking the song from a 6 to a 9 in no time. Crave worthy. #untz
