Important Festival News (For Those Who Mysteriously Fail To Read Other Music/News Sites)

By Gerard on Friday, July 13th, 2012

If you’re like us (and I suspect you are), YOU LOVE MUSIC FESTIVALS almost as much as you love freedom. And there’s so many that are close to our hearts.  Matador’s Lost Weekend.  Atlamont.  The Gathering Of The Juggalos.  The Cornerstone Festival.  I could go on, but you’ve probably got some illegal downloading to back to, so let’s cut to the chase. Transmission Entertainment’s 7th annual Fun Fun Fun Festival is happening in Austin, TX this coming November 2, 3 and 4, and we’re thrilled to find out at the last minute announce Tanlines, Fucked Up, Paul Banks and The Young are all taking part.

Likewise,  ATP America’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” weekender (September 21-23) has been moved from Asbury Park, NJ to the glamorous West Side of Manhattan.  The Lee Ranaldo Band and Chavez will be playing, along with a tremendous lineup of performers, none of whom are named Louis C.K.   They’ll all have their hands full measuring up to Richie Blackmore at California Jam (above) , but there’s no harm in trying.

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.

Mon, June 25 – Los Angeles, CA – School Night @ Bardot (DJ set only)

Tue, June 26 – Santa Barbara, CA – Velvet Jones (presented by 92.9 KJEE)

Wed, June 27 – San Francisco, CA – Brick & Mortar Music Hall (presented by Live 105)

Thu, June 28 – Seattle, WA – Neumo’s (presented by 107.7 The End)

Fri, July 13 – Louisville, KY – Forecastle Festival

Sun, July 15 – Chicago, IL – Lincoln Hall (discount for Pitchfork Festival wristband holders)

Thu, July 19 – Miami, FL – Bardot Miami

Fri, Aug 10 – San Francisco, CA – Outside Lands Festival

Sat, Aug 11 – Columbus, OH – Summerfest 2012

Sat, Sept 1 – Los Angeles, CA – FYF Festival

Thu, Sept 6 – Portland, OR – Music Fest NW

Today on KEXP: Ceremony early, Tanlines late (update: later than expected), good times forever

By Hector on Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

UPDATE: Tanlines will now be playing live TOMORROW, April 25, at 3:00PM EDT/noon PDT.

Dear faithful radio listener,

Today on Seattle’s KEXP, available on the radio dial at 90.3FM or online at KEXP.org, we have a dynamic duo of artists performing for your edification and enlightenment.

In just under half an hour, Rohnert Park, CA’s Ceremony, fresh off opening for Refused and playing an UNPRECEDENTED 16+ show at Mercury Lounge last night, will be rocking and rolling the airwaves with soothing sounds from their latest opus, Zoo (available for purchase here). Tune in at 12:30PM EDT/9:30AM PDT.

Later today, at 4:30PM EDT/1:30PM PDT, Tanlines, who did not open for Refused last night but surely would have killed it if they had, will be performing live in the KEXP studios. Due to border issues (thanks a lot, Canada), Tanlines must needs reschedule their KEXP session. They will now take to the live airwaves tomorrow, April 25, at 3:00PM EDT/noon PDT. Their new album is called Mixed Emotions, the video for the song “All Of Me” is above, and you should make a point of purchasing the former and enjoying the latter.

Tanlines – “All Of Me” video, directed by Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh, debuts with Adult Swim

By Gabe on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Today public radio stars Tanlines give us the second video from their just-released album Mixed Emotions (buy it here). The video was directed by Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh (full credits below), and is brought to us by the fine folks at Adult Swim. This video is awesome:

The video, which marks the music video directorial debut of UK comedy legend Julian Barratt of The Mighty Boosh and was produced by Framestore, will be Tanlines’ second video off of the album (and the first not in 360 degrees). The collaboration between Barratt and the band was a combination of brazen wishful thinking and good luck. Tanlines, who are influenced by Barratt, toyed with the possibility of listing the Mighty Boosh as a creative partner in their liner notes. Word reached Barratt, who after listening to an early version of the album realized “All of Me” served as a perfect musical counterpoint to some of the imagery he was interested in exploring, and an opportunity to experiment making music videos. So shockingly, he dove in.

Barratt says, “At the time I wrote the treatment, I was watching a particular film by Fabrice Du Welz called ‘The Ordeal’ which is a really good, strange, macabre film with some really interesting movement and dance bits in that…I’m always trying to do anything between comedy and horror. Because you have such a strong flavor with Tanlines’ music, it’s quite fun to offset that with bleak imagery.”

The video stars the band performing on an old-timey late-night television show to an elderly crowd jiltedly moving together, doing something just short of dancing. It is mysterious, funny, macabre and a definite must-see.

Adult Swim is also presenting a behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the “All Of Me” video, starring Mr. Barratt (short film directed by Matthew Bowron, edited by Richard Carter):

Tanlines “All of Me” Mp3

By truepanthersounds on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

We’re nearing the March 20th release of Mixed Emotions on True Panther Sounds. You’ve already spent some time wrapping your head around the album opener Brothers (and the progressive house rave r die, thizz yr brains out remix) so now here’s something new.

“All of Me” is the kind of spirited and soaring track Tanlines have somehow gotten really really really good at making. An intimate song about love and fear busted out into a digital stadium. It’s a SPRING song more than a summer song, maybe even a springtime in New York song…which is convenient because this spring is going to have some Tanlines tour dates that you can find below. Hope you enjoy the track and pre-order the record, which you can get on mailorder exclusive color vinyl for the time being.
