Twin Tigers - "Automatic" (MP3)

by Tyler Gould

3 November 2009


So the chorus in “Automatic” shares its melody with “Lump” by the Presidents of the United States of America, but they get a pass due to music being a bit of an infinite monkeys, infinite typewriters situation these days. The rest of the song is saturated with noise and sounds exhausting. Whether it’s an beautiful, religious exhaustion or an “if I listen to this for one more second I’m going to vomit my organs” exhaustion depends on your mood, I suppose.

Twin Tigers are currently on tour with the Antlers and Minus the Bear (dates after the jump). Their debut LP, Gray Waves comes out next year on Old Flame.
