In the past I have sang the praises of the Canadian label Drip Audio, home of No More Shapes, Inhabitants, Fond of Tigers, and lots more wonderfully weird music that when description of it is attempted, gives the hyphen key on your keyboard a workout. Lots of jazz elements bouncing around, colliding with the rock edge that graces the post-everything world nowadays. If you are tired of trying to read my efforts to summarize the most on Drip Audio, you can go to their website and download ten songs.
In other news, the indie-racket group Fond of Tigers has tapped into the talents of Snadro Perri and Mats Gustafsson for their upcoming third album Country & Western. A few vocal numbers are kicked around in the dirt, but the instrumental barrage of “Soheb” and “Grandad” are not to be missed.
