Tiger Waves - Fireworks

This duo - Reid Comstock and James Marshall - emailed me about their long-distance collaboration project that has birthed what they deem “cosmic surf-rock.”  They add that they’re “sort of a bizarre combination of Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys and anything from the Elephant 6 collective” which, duh, are as irresistable as influences to me as honey to a fly. I love the segue into “Ghost” on this set of new demos, so if you listen there let it ride.

Also worth a listen, “Down, Down, Down“ a pop tune I was particularly infatuated with from their earlier(?) set of tunes call Only Good Bands Have Animal NamesGet ‘em all free on Sndcld.

Also taking the stage Saturday will be national touring acts TV on the Radio, Handsome Furs, Les Savy Fav and Best Coast as well as Seattle favorites Beat Connection, Seapony and The Young Evils.
