Album Review: Tanlines - Mixed Emotions

Thursday, 31st May 2012 10:51AM

Mixed Emotions is the debut album from Brooklyn, New York duo Tanlines. Made up of Eric Emm (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Jesse Cohen (drums, keyboards, bass), on Mixed Emotions, Tanlines mine an oh so current intersection of musical styles. Grounded in demos originally written with guitar and voice, across Mixed Emotions twelve song running order, Emm drapes his New Wave redolent baritone over bubbling synthetic instrumentals. Characterised by a dichotomy between digital and organic, these backing beds fold conventions drawn from the Tropical musical world, melodically ascendant African music and the offbeat/percussive house side of the UK bass music hardcore continuum into a pop aspiring platform for Emm's personal lyrical storytelling.
