Since their effulgent 12" EP, Settings (True Panther, 2011), I've wondered where the effort of recording enough material for an LP would take Tanlines - their latest, unveiled earlier this week, has most recently been characterized as helping to draw closed the duo's arc from "production project" to "band". "Brothers", taken from their upcoming full length debut, Mixed Emotions, definitely marks an expansion in their production and instrumentation, as well as the addition of a new emotional quality to Eric Emm's more full-bodied vocals, but part of me misses the leanness of Settings, even if it still fits nicely alongside the new material.

MP3: Tanlines - Brothers
Mixed Emotions is currently slated for a release on March 20 - preorder it from True Panther.
