Americana might be having a moment, but the heady garage rock of the 60s suits Tennessee s Tiger High just fine. In their latest cut Be the Indian the Memphis band hits a soundstage to jam out amid several projector screens, letting the harsh fluorescent lights and TV snow drift over their bodies. It s a trippy happening, but it remains visceral, even if they re paying homage to all the Velvet Underground s parties. And this 60s iteration feels more current and taut, though Be the Indian keeps its guitar lines just a little blurry and buzzy. Drummer Greg Roberson reportedly worked with Arthur Lee on forming a new Love lineup until Lee passed away in 2006, but Lee is here in spirit.Tiger High s Catacombs After Party is out now on Trashy Creatures.
