It seems like every spring several indie bands break out of obscurity and become my favorite bands for nearly the rest of the year (last year, for me, it was Fitz & the Tantrums, Dr Dog, and Foster the People). Tanlines is one of those bands for me in spring 2012--bouncy, simple orchestration, fast-moving, with nuanced song-writing that, as another reviewer notes, reminds me too of New Order (in only the best ways) or Erasure (in the range of Tanlines' vocalist). "Not the Same," "Green Grass," and "All of Me" definitely deserve a listen.
