Tear Council – “Anywhere”

Music for… dreaming. For letting your imagination take you anywhere you want to go. Its a gentle ride, just get on and float. Let the soothing boy/girl vocals of Tear Council guide the way.

Location: Sydney, Australia

Future: Tear Council is helmed by Matt Van Schie (Du Tonc, Van She, his solo stuff) so expect more — and great — things.

Du Tonc – “Every Song”

Sounds like… smooth ass slow disco groover from TBE favs Du Tonc (Matt van Schie and Mighty Mouse). Just bask in it.

Location: International (Australia & US)

Future: A full album would be very welcome!

Du Tonc – “Rise” + “Darkness” + “Surging Memories”

Du Tonc

“Du Tonc are Matt Van Schie and Mighty Mouse.”

That is the only thing it says on Du Tonc’s Soundcloud page. If you have half a foot in the indie-dance/nu-disco waters then that is all you need to know. Besides his solo stuff, Van Schie is in Van She and generally responsible for a lot of dancing bodies on this planet. Mighty Mouse recently remixed Monarchy and is a force on his own. So anyway, together they are Du Tonc and they make fantastic music to move to. I think “Darkness” is my favorite so far… but it is hard to say.

MATT VAN SCHIE can be enjoyed on a SATURDAY, or really any day or NIGHT

we had to go, no you should go, make your life alone

♫ Matt van Schie – Saturday Night

After hearing the Memory Tapes remix of Matt’s other track I was inspired to do some digging and came up with this groovy jam. Guitar noodling, bleep blooping, and breathy vocals add up to toe tapping goodness that would perfectly soundtrack some Memorial Day lounging. Those of us not in The States can just use it to ease into this week with a bit of aural lubrication. Matt’s first solo effort separate from Van She is the Balmy Nights EP and is out now.
