Tiger Saw debuts the first new song from their seventh album “The Featherweight” (out March 15 on Burst & Bloom). Dylan Metrano explains the song is about his days in 1990’s post-punk band Hamlet Idiot:
Happy new year! On March 15, Tiger Saw will be releasing our seventh album, “The Featherweight”. Here’s the first single “Our Songs Were Skeleton Keys”.
This is a song about the 1990’s, and the culture of playing shows, supporting live music, making music with my friends, record collecting, and being inspired by all that was happening around us. It’s a song about being young and capable of anything, and the amazing community that I was in. For those who don’t know, Hamlet Idiot was a band I was in from 1992-1999, and many of the posters and records shown here are from that band.
I continue to be inspired today by the community around me, some of whom have been at it since back then. Keep on at it, friends. With love, Dylan / Tiger Saw
ps. We have an incredible lineup on “The Featherweight”. Here’s the players on this song:
Chris Klaxton – trumpet Eric Klaxton – tenor saxophone Jocelyn MacKenzie – vocals Marc McElroy – clavinet, Rhodes Dylan Metrano – vocals Jocelyn MacKenzie – vocals Jim Rioux – drums Erik Tans – bass
Once again, we present our end-of-the-year favorites from the Burst & Bloom family and friends. It is our hope that you might discover something that has made us happy in 2017, and that it will make you happy as well.
We’d like to welcome The Great Auk to the Burst & Bloom family! The Great Auk is the acoustic and sometimes semi-plugged-in duo of Carrie Bradley and Bernie Jungle. Their songs run from acoustic to electric, big harmonies to near whispers, and distortion to silence, as Bradley and Jungle deliver stories, vivid imagery from the mundane to the phantasmagoric, humor, a love of language, and a lot of conversation between the strings.
