Now living in Brooklyn, Tigercity combines guitar-driven rock and electronic pop with hints of Roxy Music, Talking Heads, The Police, and Prince. Successful nights at The Annex, Club Midway, The Knitting Factory, The Middle East, Lit Lounge, and North Six have the band making waves from Jersey to Manhattan, Boston and Brooklyn. Shows with Jamie Lidell, M.I.A, Serena Maneesh, Jimmy Edgar, Mobius Band, DieDieDie, and Oxford Collapse have their fan base growing rapidly since their Western Massachusetts transplant.
since seeing this band for the first time in March at a Deer Tick show without ever hearing about them before I have been enthralled with their EP, Pretend Not To Love. It's a deliciously fresh slice of modern electro-pop-rock that never gets stale and will keep you bobbing your head & tapping your toes throughout its 30 minute-length...they are currently in the process of releasing a full-length but details on it seem to still be abit scarce...anywho..
check out the ridiculously catchy "Are You Sensation?" & "Other Girls" here
post your thoughts if you check it out....i love these guys and hope you do too.
going to attempt a daily feature for my AP Blog highlighting up and coming bands, lesser known bands, and bands in general that have shaped my personal music taste...first up is:
Western Giants is a 5-piece Folk/Rock band from Denton, TX. Started in the fall of 2008 as a solo project, Western Giants have now exploded onto the north Texas music circuit, putting their unique blend of blues, folk, and southern charm into the ears of everyone around. With their newly released EP, and early internet buzz, the future is bright for this quintet.
