Trey Ratcliff - Burning Man (331 of 1086)-X2

 

Today’s Untz: St. Ides Heaven (Goldroom cover) / Elliott Smith

“Very happy to finally announce that Goldroom’s next release, the Embrace EP, will be out on Sept 9th! To celebrate, I’ve recorded a cover of one of my favorite artists, Elliott Smith. Its a free download if you just follow the link. To coincide with the EP release, we’ll be going on a two month LIVE tour of North America with the full band! Check our tour dates tab for more information about that.

I tried my best to do a beautiful song justice with this cover. Elliott Smith was one of our greatest songwriters, and thats something thats lacking at times in dance music. If nothing else, I just wanted to bring him into my world a little bit and look at the song from a different angle. I really hope you like it, and if you do, please share it with someone else. Cheers.” – Josh aka Goldroom

Today’s Untz: Crickets (Viceroy Remix) / Drop City Yacht Club

Jewels & Sapphires (Goldroom Remix) / Owl Eyes

What a wonderful day here in the city of San Francisco. It’s sunny and warm outside and we’ve been space blessed with releases from both Viceroy and Goldroom. And since they recently played here in the city together I figured I’d highlight both tracks.

Both are ripe for good weather and good times. Whether that’s on a sunny beach,  in a sunny park, or a decked out school bus chillin on the side of a San Francisco street. Enjoy! #tom

Today’s Untz: Only You Can Show Me (feat Mereki) / Goldroom 

As a long time Goldroom fan (musically and when he contributed often to his blog/label Binary Entertainment) I can honestly say I’ve always loved everyone of his productions or remixes.

I’ve been to LA a number of times, but every time I listen to him I swear I feel like I’ve lived there for years. And I’m not talking West Hollywood. I’m talking everything that’s great about LA… warm weather, palm trees, sunshine, beautiful people, good vibes… His music just oozes with it.

I’m planning on catching him here in SF soon with Viceroy. I’m pumped to check out his live setup. “Only You Can Show Me” instantly seems like a song that will make the transition to a live band seamlessly especially with that percussion.

Mereki, featured on this track, happens to be a part of the live show as well. If the pictures Goldroom loved to put up on his blog say anything she’s surely just as attractively LA as her voice is beautiful. I’m  looking forward to this one. #untz/tom

Travelin

5 Nov

We’re headed to Southeast Asia for hot a minute. I’ll be taking everything in while I’m there, but alas, I will also be listening to music. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to occasionally share some tunes. Here are a few I’ve enjoyed lately… Hasta Luego #untz/tom

Holy Ghost! – It Gets Dark

 

Amtrac – Those Days (Viceroy Remix)

Goldroom – Fifteen (Final DJS When We Were Young Remix)

Today’s Untz: Back Seat (Goldroom Remix) / Atlas Genius

Goldroom released a free track today! Out here in SF it’s a comfortably warm 70 degrees and this song has me in high spirits after a terribly slow Monday.

In all serious though I’m thinking a lot about my family and friends on the East Coast. I know they’re getting slammed so I’m sending positive vibes through positive tunes. Go away Sandy! #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Pacific / Goldroom

As Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, so eloquently put it… “‘Pacific’ is definitely the soundtrack to slowly flying over the open ocean, so throw some headphones on let it all wash over you.”

I had first heard of Josh a ways back when I discovered the Binary Label blog that instantly had me captivated by what they called Dreamwave. He was part of the trio called NightWaves who were among the many artists I discovered both through the label and through their suggestions of other producers/bands that encapsulated that sound.

This has always been the kind of music that inspires an overwhelming sense of beautiful imagery alongside the summery soundscapes. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I like posting pictures alongside the music I post. Goldroom’s tunes specifically can instantly transport you to another dimension on some far off tropical intergalactic beach. It’s a beautiful thing. #untz / tom

fifteen in the sierras

Today’s Untz: Fifteen (Rotkraft Remix) / Goldroom

Goldroom’s ‘Fifteen’ has been out for sometime, but after hearing this version/seeing this video I wanted to feature it. I mean it’s summer and there’s love in the air. Breathe it in and enjoy your short time on this earth.

I’m headed to High Sierra Music Festival this weekend up in Quincy, CA so hopefully I’ll have some fun updates from there when I get back. I listen to all types of music from bluegrass to intergalactic unicorn disco, but as far as electronic related music, I’m pumped for STS9, Lotus, and Papadosio. I’ve seen everyone, but Papadosio. Have a safe weekend TUATI readers! #untz/tom

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
