I’ve got to continue with my push towards Friday by feeding you all with some upbeat tunes to close out your week. I’m thinking this new single from Black Taxi is definitely going to do the trick. While it starts off subtle, the knifing guitar lines encourage dance floor stomping and flailing arms. I won’t go so far as to say that it’s the most special thing out there, but it’s definitely deserving of a dance-friendly personal mix. You can pick up the group’s Chiaroscuro EP next week courtesy of No Shame. Dance dance dance!
This song is a real throwback to those early 2000s when we could all just join up in a club and dance for fun. Black Taxi are a Brooklyn foursome, currently working towards the release of their record in January 2012. On this number you’ll find that steady guitar jangle stomp often heard in the likes of Franz Ferdinand or The Strokes. I can already tell that this is one of those numbers that will have you and your friends dancing about late at night after the bars. And if you like what you hear, the band will be playing the Zombie Ball at ACL Live this Saturday in Austin.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/01-Tightrope.mp3]
