Miniature Tigers F O R T R E S S

Bullfighter Jacket
Mansion of Misery
Gold Skull

Miniature Tigers are an  band which formed in Phoenix, Arizona, United States in 2006, whom now call Brooklyn home (shocking isn’t it?) The band consists of Charlie Brand (vocals, guitar), Algernon Quashie (guitar, keyboards), Alex Gerber (bass, vocals) and Rick Schaier (drums).  Their sound could be equated to Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, and at times even some of the Morning Benders comes out in them.  They recently released a new album entitled FORTRESS.

The Alan Palomo(Neon Indian) infused track  Gold Skull was released to much fanfare, and for good reason.  Its a perfect smooth summery jam, complete with the lo-fi vocal hooks and harmonies; and some electronic noodling that flesh out the chilled out vibe.

Bullfighter Jacket, seems to have producer Chris Chu, of the Morning Benders, all over it.  A pounding piano sound, and what seems to be their most ambitious track on the album the whispy vocals are a nice contrast to the almost rapid fired harmonies.  This will be the track they are remembered for, on this album.

An interesting sophomore album that shows major promise.
