Both musically and personnel-wise, the Brooklyn-based electronic dance/pop group Restless Folks are effectively a conflation of two acts: the defunct eclectic dance-punk outfit Teacher Murder (three of whose four associates — Jesse Cohen, Mike Bell-Smith, and Tony Plunkett, aka Tony Blankets — are with this music group aswell) and Tanlines, the production duo turned live-band project of Cohen and ex-Don Caballero/Surprise & Tension bassist (and Teacher Murder producer) Eric Emm. Specifically, the well-timed treble-focused electro-tropical vibe that Emm and Cohen concocted as Tanlines bears over unmistakably within their use Restless People:? the group’s self-titled debut recording, which found its way to September 2010 just half a year after Tanlines’ Configurations EP, continues quite definitely in the sonic vein of this release (oddly enough, Restless People was billed as an LP although it’s just three minutes much longer). Commensurate with their stature like a full-fledged music group, nevertheless, Restless People slim a lot more toward conventionally vocal-based tunes than digital dance songs, with Emm’s enthusiastically scrappy performing helping to set up an immediate, punkish positivity. Ahead of their established/physical debut on Iamsound Information, a few of Restless People’s songs made an appearance via the band’s site/Internet label Family members Release, whose “produces” likewise incorporate EPs from connected functions Newborn Huskies and Bulldozier, gag TwitPics, and re-soundtracked YouTube video clips.
