Tigers that Talked

I’ve fallen for another band. This time the sound of Tigers that Talked have moved me to write another post. I discovered them circuitously through Topspin. ¬†Then I found out Richard Jones is managing them and got even more excited about their future.

Their tunes have taken me for some nice rides in all kind of settings. There’s a soft intensity about their grooves and a dramatic feel in their rises. They have a crisp and soothing blend of rock and folk with songs suited for an arena of 50,000 or a neighborhood coffeeshop.

I guess my vague descriptions of their sound aren’t really convincing you. No matter, check out their Artificial Clouds video for a small idea on what they’re about.

Here are the rest of the tracks from their debut album, The Merchant,

in full length streams.

They have a great deal on Merchant for ¬£3 or $4.50 until November 29th. I’m looking forward to seeing them live soon. Check them out and let me know what you think. Here’s another video of 23 Fears. Fresh indeed.

Antony Micallef

Last Tuesday we went to the opening event of viagra tabs Antony Micallef’s “Impure Idols” art exhibit in Hollywood with our good friends Leena and Ameet. Thanks to Simone who got the special invites from Claire Joseph. I was quite moved, and the strong impressions I have of his art are still lingering in my mind.

I appreciate the way he weaves in images of pop culture, random artillery, and children with his messages on the ills of consumerism. Leena has an interesting post with more on Antony’s art and the impact it has had on her own personal creativity. Definitely a very special night as we left with a renewed sense of expression and a committed intention to experience more of the contemporary art emerging out of the UK.
