Common Tiger – “Surf” // Art: Caitlin McCarthy

Common Tiger ’s recent song, “Surf”, is a really powerful of example of great songwriting and outstanding production. The track begins with a bouncy and organic acoustic guitar riffs, which fits right into the edgy drum beat and cool electronic samples. The bass creeps in shortly after, with a fat, saturated tone that brings a lot of power to the mix.

Common Tiger’s production aesthetics make me think of artists like Bibio, yet this sound is definitely more upbeat and energetic, with a more focus on conceiving catchy and immediate melodies with a very appealing feel. This song is a true wild ride, which allows multiple layers of grooves and melodies to truly move the song forward, propelling it in a very dynamic way. The song combines the tangible textures of acoustic instruments (such as acoustic guitar and acoustic drum samples) with the feel of synths and other effects, making for a very interesting and direct contrast.

Koresma – “The Overlook (Common Tiger Remix)” + “Forest Sang” (Good Lee Remix) // Art: Julian Glander

This remix of TBE favorite “The Overlook” starts off faithful to the original, but the DJ flips, re-pitching, and new parts grow as you make your way through, leaning more fully into the trip-hop elements present in the original and giving it an attitude that was missing before. Common Tiger helps us rediscover something we thought we knew.

You can download this track for free HERE.

Koresma gets another tasty remix from Good Lee, this time on a more drastic scale. Good Lee reimagines “Forest Sang” entirely, as if changing the perspective of the forest from the chorus of treetop birds as seen from above to the low fog gathering calmly at the base of the tree trunks. It’s a dramatic shift, but it still feels distinctly at home with the rest of Koresma’s music.

Download the remix for free HERE, and listen to the original on VINYL MOON Volume 031: The Nature Of Inner Space.
