It’s Summer, Get To Know Your TANLINES

By Todd Netter on Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

SUMMER IS  HERE!…ok well it officially starts tomorrow but we can’t contain our excitement so we’re getting started a day early.   Ahhh Summer, the season of extended daylight, backyard BBQs, road trips with friends, summer playlists, and Tanlines + Lemonade of course.

Apologies for that simple and obvious play on words.  But honestly as sure as you’re likely to have some tan lines after laying around the pool drinking a glass of lemonade this summer, we’re convinced both bands (Tanlines and Lemonade) will be on your iPods/stereos while doing so.  But don’t take our word for it, Creator’s Project said that Tanlines are “destined to become your summer soundtrack”, and New York Magazine, Stereogum, and Refinery 29 couldn’t agree more, naming “All Of Me” one of their Songs Of The Summer.

Anyhow since we’ll be spending all summer together, it’s probably a good time to get to know your Tanlines better.  Courtesy of Creator’s Project, click HERE for an intimate look at the band Tanlines, their recording process, how they formed, and much much more.

Also Tanlines will be performing across the US all summer long, starting tomorrow night with an official summer kick off show at the House of Vans in Brooklyn.  A full list of summer tour dates is below.

“Diver traffics in cool, tropical-tinged electropop….bound to get stuck in your head for days.”
- TIME OUT NEW YORK

“pulls in elements from every genre imaginable until their music is just one overwhelmed stew of world-music-informed hedonistic insecurity. It’s a tricky line to walk, but on their sophomore album Diver they do it well. “
- THE FADER

LEMONADE “Diver” out May 29, 2012. (Mp3)

By truepanthersounds on Thursday, March 8th, 2012

All of us at True Panther Sounds are very pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Diver the 2nd album by Lemonade available worldwide on May 29th.

Diver is a sensual, bold electronic record, swimming ecstatically in the melodies of early 90′s R&B, UK 2-step Garage, Balearic house and NY freestyle. The trio, Callan Clendenin (vocals), Ben Steidel (synths, bass) and Alex Pasternak (drums, programming) recorded the album over the course of several years, at home in New York, on tour in Brazil between shows, or in their practice space in the basement of an old Catholic school. Ultimately, the album came to life when the band recruited producer Le Chev (Frankie Rose, Fischerspooner, SSION) to add the finishing touches and assist in fully realizing the band’s vision of Diver.

The music that Mary Anne Hobbs once called “pure, agile, hedonistic pop music,” is still there, but in an infinitely more potent and focused form. Callan’s lyricism reaches new intimate lows and ecstatic highs. Where Lemonade used to seek transcendence through psychedelic dance-floor physicality, Callan now looks inward, at the emotions of limited means, the urban everyday, and his attempts to hold on to redemptive love and romance in a cybernetic, information-rich world. Lemonade reference PM Dawn and Sade in the same sentence as Julio Bashmore and Swedish House Mafia. They are sounds of the past synthesized with contemporary dance music boueyed by the most immediate matters of the heart.

“Neptune”, the first taste from Diver, is a case in point. It’s a pure and emotional R&B track, an instant and surprising classic. The single will be released next month with remixes from Mike Simonetti, Jacques Renault, and Sinjin Hawke. Stay tuned for more info.
