Small Black – No Stranger

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

I’m back!!!!! Wow, I dropped off this for far too long. So much music missed, but I am here to deliver! Small Black came onto my radar around ’09 and very few do dreamy pop better than these guys. Liken them to a little bit of Washed Out with the upbeat tempo of Delorean. The textures in this song are so great and the drums give it such a great coastal vibe. This lovely little song about love at first sight might just be the song to set off your summer on the right foot!


Tanlines – Real Life

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Okay, I dare you to play this song all the way through without tapping your toes, bobbing your head, or  breaking out into full dance  (like I did). The drums are so entrancing and the synth is so simple, it is just plain enticing to the ears. If you had never heard this Brooklyn duo before, based on this song, you’d think they were some rasta band that smokes a lot of weed. You may or may not have the latter right, but they are indeed very white. Mes Aloha y’all.
