Today’s Untz: Slow Down / Poolside

‘Slow Down’ is Poolside’s first single from their debut album “Pacific Standard Time” out July 9th 2012. Featured here before, the Los Angeles based duo Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise are good friends who are inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food and wine. Their sound is called Daytime Disco.

It’s an appropriate song for the summer season and the video is perfect as well. So kick back, throw this tune on, and drift away. That’s what Daytime Disco is for. Off to Mexico for me. Cheers #untz/tom


it feels good to be poolside

Outside Lands: amazing music, backdrop, and company. Completely tuckered out in the best kind of way. Two tropical sounding tracks to ease back into regular life, slowly, carefully…

Today’s Emo: Harvest Moon / Poolside (Neil Young cover)

‘when we were strangers I watched you from afar / when we were lovers I loved you with all my heart’

A couple months ago I posted Teen Daze’s take of Neil’s Harvest Moon. This cover takes a similar angle, with playful, trickling  synth, a clap along feel, and hazy, soft vocals. Still, totally digging this jazzed up spin of the classic. LA electro duo Poolside self identifies as daytime disco, and this feels like the perfect track to accompany my feel good summer feelings of this weekend and three days outside in the sun and fog. #emo

Today’s Untz: It Feels Good to Be Around You / Air France

Going to continue to ride the chillwave right into my untz today with this breezy gem from another electro duo, Air France. Layers upon layers of whispy, echoed vocals, soft beats, and a hint of the theme from Koopa Beach intertwine in the Swedes’ new release. It Feels Good to be Around You is the cutest song name I have come across in a while, perfectly embodying that first little sigh when you realize you might be smitten, and it feels good. More please. #untz
