Brooklyn duo Tanlines features guitarist/vocalist Eric Emm (formerly of Storm and Stress and Don Caballero, along with Battles' Ian Williams), but Tanlines sound nothing like those hurly-burly math-rock groups. Rather, they're a streamlined, dreamy, dance-pop outfit who should appeal to more than dudes with serious demeanors and pocket protectors. On their 2012 debut full-length, Mixed Emotions, Tanlines' affinity for interesting percussive textures and oddly alluring melodies make them one of the more respectable acts coming out of Brooklyn's over-hyped scene. DFA Records artist Rewards (AKA Aaron Pfenning, formerly of Chairlift) deals in slicker, more escapist new-wave/new-romantic dance maneuvers. Check "Equal Dreams," a swanky collab with vocalist Solange Knowles, for proof. DAVE SEGAL
