Tanlines "The Big Mess"
From Merge Records:
Tanlines’ first album for Merge. Eric Emm and Jesse Cohen make escapist, joyful-sounding songs about sad, insular moments and melancholy songs about catharsis and joy. The Big Mess is a deft and danceable exploration of what Emm calls “introspective masculinity,” what thoughtful relationships look like between father and son, between friends, and between the individual and societal expectations. The Big Mess is for Tanlines fans old and new alike, those who’ve succumbed to their wry, winking brand of pop music in the past, and those looking to soundtrack a late night in the future.
