Today’s Indie: Stand On The Horizon :: Evil Eye / The North Sea

“Todd Terje and Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John are among the artists Franz Ferdinand have worked with on their new album ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’, it has been confirmed.”

Today we get a taste of what that is going to sound like via Todd Terje’s soundcloud page via two extended cuts. Off to The North Sea! #indie/tom

dimensions festival

31 Aug

Note: I’m headed out of the country tomorrow to ultimately end up in Pula, Croatia (pictured above) for Dimensions Festival. So with that said, I will be gone two weeks. “With a higher technical specification of sound systems than you will find at any other festival of its size, Dimensions is the perfect place to enjoy the deep end of electronica, the best in techno, house, deep dubstep, drum & bass and other electronic sounds.”

Here are some of the musical highlights I’m looking forward to:

Today’s Untz: Dimensions

Blawan – Getting Me Down

Gold Panda – Marriage

Four Tet – Pyramid

John Talabot – Destiny

Finnebassen – Monday (Finnebassen Remake)

Todd Terje – Inspector Norse

Today’s Untz: Snooze 4 Love / Todd Terje

A friend and I finally purchased our plane tickets to Rome where we will make our way to Pula, Croatia for Dimensions Festival this September. I’m currently in celebration mode as the plane tickets were the biggest obstacle. It’s officially all happening.

So with that in mind, I though I’d give you a taste of what I’ll be seeing namely Todd Terje who was a late addition. This track is a fluid, hypnotic groover. It’s different from Terje’s disco and Balearic roots. It starts out with some ambient, spacey synths. He slowly builds it up as he’s in no rush here. It’s 8 minutes of pure soulful grooves so be patient. It’s not all about the “drops” kids. Cheers.#untz / tom

 

geographer inspector

26 Mar

I love indie music – pop, dance, rock, folk. My boyfriend loves untz- unicorn disco, space base, neptune jamz, luvstep…  While I originally started TUATI on my own, we have decided to combine our passions and share what we each love on the blog. I will continue to post the indie, but Tom will take over the untz. Ying and yang, head and heart, rest and play, everything is covered.  Musical bliss.

Today’s Indie: Verona / Geographer 

 

‘you call me all the right words but the right words sound so wrong / you say that I’m changing, I guess I will before too long’

Throw back Monday because I haven’t had time to dig through the week’s new stuff, and because Verona has been running in my head on loop all weekend. While this SF trio has been around for a few years now, they are the best band to happen to me this year, and fittingly introduced to me by new blog partner. This track is off the band’s earlier album, Animal Shapes, and what draws me in like so many of their songs is lead Michael Deni’s vocals. At the start there is patience in his sound, like he is purposefully keeping himself distant, but then in the chorus he sweeps into something more vulnerable and intimate before pulling away again. So fitting given the lyrics… great stuff. #indie / tory

Today’s Untz: Inspector Norse / Todd Terje

Following a string of celebrated releases, Todd Terje of Oslo, Norway, has been leaning on everything from kitschy euro sounds to deep funk and latin jazz. He’s  relatively new to the scene, but has already made his mark within dance music circuits. I can’t quite recall where I’ve heard this first track before, but I assume it’s on one of the many mixes I listen to. Go check out his soundcloud. #untz / tom
