Tigercity releases new album, video, mp3

by oz on November 7, 2009

One of the best surprises for me at our SxSW party last year was seeing Tigercity perform. They took the stage about 8 hours into the party after a series of alt-country acts like Joe Pug, Justin Townes Earle, The Deep Dark Woods and others. Their set was the turning point in the party. People ordered fewer beers and more red bull + vodka cocktails and things got a little weirder.

I haven’t had a chance to spin the album, but the 80’s inspired “Fake Gold” is here as an mp3 and the video features the bald, bearded lead singer scoring a hot chick. The album is out now and the band is touring.

First, the video is pretty funny video. Good lyrics. I’m getting a little sick of the ironic 80’s styling – but this song is well done, and the lyrics work really well with the style. Maybe because 80’s aesthetic kind of strikes me as the sonic equivalent of wearing fake gold – gaudy but totally cheap.

I also think that its funny and awesome that the lead signer sounds a lot like Trent Reznor during a few spots. That totally works.

Just a little correction. Tigercity is out of Brooklyn. But they definitely rocked Chicago on friday night.

I like to make things up.
