Brooklyn Duo Tanlines Play Webster Hall Tomorrow Night

November 28th, 2012

Initially sidemen-turned-producers Eric Emm (vocals, guitar, keys) and Jesse Cohen (drums, keys, bass) were interested in a remix project, with friends putting vocals over their music. But they decided their tunes—an eclectic mix of electro-pop, rock, dance and world music—were so good they wanted to keep them for themselves. So in 2010, the duo put out a praised-by-Pitchfork EP, Settings, as Tanlines. Later that year they released a compilation album, which also received some critical love, Volume On, filled with all of their released music plus some remixes and other odds and ends. Earlier this year, Tanlines (above, in one of Vice’s Creators Project sessions) put out their first proper LP, Mixed Emotions (stream it below), of which the AV Club says, “There’s no question that Tanlines have found their path forward.” And you can see them tomorrow night at Webster Hall.
