It seems like just about everywhere I turn right now I'm hearing about Phoenix's own Miniature Tigers. Okay, sure, they may have relocated to Brooklyn but personally this doesn't really bother me. Why? Because, to be quite honest, if I had a chance to move to Brooklyn I would take it in a heartbeat. Don't get me wrong: I love Phoenix, but being a native of Arizona for the past 29 years I have to say that I could use a change of scenery. But, alas, I'm married with kids and the likelyhood of me moving out of state are slim to none.
But enough about me.
So yeah, I've been seeing the Mini T's pop up all over the place. They were recently featured on All Songs Considered, Fader, Stereogum, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, and just about every other music blog I read. And of course they're all talking about the Tiger's latest album Fortress. And for good reason, too: the album is really, really good.
But don't take my word for it. You can stream the album in full over at Spinner.com.
Also, you can catch the Miniature Tigers along with Kinch, The Spinto Band, and ROAR when they get together for an album release party this Tuesday(07/27) at the Rhythm Room. I fully expect that to be a killer show.
