Can’t get you out of my head….

I saw Tanlines twice during SXSW and they sent me skywards on both occasions. Live, they’ve got a groove going on which certainly has the right angles covered and the smart moves down pat. A genealogy expert would put the Brooklyn duo in the same family tree as Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club, Arthur Russell and other New York downtown free spirits and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

You’re getting two for the price of one here. The original is smashing, a divine slither of tropical Balearic pop with a slice of lemon on top. Then, there’s the Memory Tapes remix, which takes the original and funkpunks it delightfully into a whole new stratrosphere. Play both back to back and join the party.
