How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be see… More »

Indie Rockers Respond To NY Legalizing Gay Marriage

New York just became the 6th largest state to approve same-sex marriage. Yes! The Senate bill passed 33-to-29, Governor Cuomo signed the measure shortly after, and the law goes into effect in 30 days. A historic night to be sure, one probably best not spent in front of a laptop. Too late. But in case… More »

Miniature Tigers – “Bullfighter Jacket” Video

This is clever/cute: Miniature Tigers's "Bullfighter Jacket" video is a moving Where's Waldo book, with wizards, painters, and perverts among its dozens of characters. Director Morgan Krantz (who also did the band's "Gold Skull" video), films everyone against a green lawn from above. Stitched together, it looks like a giant, detailed collage. (It also reminded… More »

Miniature Tigers – “Bullfighter Jacket”

"Bullfighter Jacket" comes as the second listen from Miniature Tigers' forthcoming Fortress, following up on the Alan Palomo-produced high-pitched keyboard dreaminess of "Gold Skull." (That one also has a video.) This track, like the rest of the LP, is produced by the morning benders' Chris Chu, giving the Mini Tigers a lock on unexpected productio… More »

Miniature Tigers – “Gold Skull” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

When we posted Miniature Tigers's Neon Indian-produced "Gold Skull," I talked up the dreaminess of the song's soft layers and high-pitched keyboards. The video's closer to a nightmare though. In it, a girl who appears to be in some sort of late night Cinemax skin flick (called Ms. Peacock Rides Again), comes out of the… More »

Miniature Tigers – “Gold Skull” (Stereogum Premiere)

Miniature Tigers haven't been discussed around here much, but it seems inevitable that they would pop up: The Brooklyn-via-Phoenix band has been around since 2006, picking up spots on many festival to-watch lists along the way to recording their upcoming album Fortress. And morning bender Chris Chu produced Fortress, communing with the band for a… More »
