Los Angeles based duo Poolside have been producing the “Daytime Disco” vibes since early 2010. Consisting of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradis, Poolside take their name seriously, with Pitchfork describing their first album, “Pacific Standard Time”, as having a “tempo and temperament that call to mind images of a palatial California, where the water is as clear as the sun is bright and the slow drip of time is inconsequential.”
Following the release of “Pacific Standard Time” last year, Poolside have found fans in LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, (who continues to make their cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” a staple of his DJ sets), and are now the golden boys of California disco.
Next month, the boys of Poolside will be stopping by the Electric Owl in Vancouver with Jay Arner and it’s sure to make you forget that summer is officially over. It all goes down on Friday, September 6th and tickets are now available via Ticketweb, and in person at Red Cat and Zulu Records. For more information visit the Facebook event page.
Tiger & Woods, consisting of Larry Tiger and David Woods, are a secretive musical duo that often hides behind a fierce looking leopard logo. They’ve recently garnered much attention for their funk infused disco, which has probably gotten them more ass than the real Tiger Woods circa 2010.
Their latest release “Through the Green” got them an 8.2 on Pitchfork media, with the track “Gin Nation” even making it on the sites top 100 tracks of 2011 list, coming in at a solid 83. For the past few months, Tiger & Woods have been touring the world, selling out clubs in New York, London, and Miami.
While the lack of information regarding their personal histories is frustrating, especially if you fantasies involving a hotel room and bubble baths, the epicness of this dream team cannot be denied. The only scary part is that these dudes are just getting started.
So if you want to experience the magic that is Tiger & Woods, come by FIVESIXTY (560 Seymour Street) on May 25. Tickets are only $15.00 in advance and are available online and at the following locations: Red Cat, Puff, Zulu, Highlife and Beatstreet.
Also taking the stage is Winnie Cooper co-founder @Tristanorchard, as well as Luke Mckeehan, Joel Armstrong, DJ Woodhead, SKLA and Right Hand Barber. Doors at 10 pm. More information on the event page.
