Tiger Chain: Man, this is going to an interesting week. Completely different than anything I've reviewed, which I guess is a good thing seeing as part of my mission is listening to music I'm unfamiliar with. I don't really know how to describe the songs. The first tune is essentially just a lot of noise (including a lot of feedback, which isn't all that pleasant for the ears) before it settles down into any kind of feel. And I don't even know how to describe the feel. Can't really understand what the chick is saying. Even in all it's craziness, I do dig something in all this.
Polly Bee: I'm glad that this song has more of an identifiable feel to it than the previous - gives your mind a nice lil break. Blues/rock - I can get down with it. The instruments are so tough sounding on this, and her voice is so soft - it's a cool contrast, but I do wish she were more present. It'll take me a couple listens to get used to, but I think I could maybe get used to it.
Sophie: Ok, this song kind of scares me. Very similar to the opening half of "Tiger Chain" in that I have no idea what the fuck is going on. Honestly, I'm a little scared. Lots of stuff... lots of stuff.
A-Town Test Site: Some seriously intense drums start out this thing. Talk about an attention grabber. I'm glad they settle down though, all of that would have started to get a little more intense than I probably would have been able to handle. The riff going on is catchy, but I wish everything didn't sound so harsh. And why so much intentional feedback? Hurts the head a little bit. Again, I'll have to give it a couple listens before I can really settle into it.
