Led by vocalist Buffi Aguero, this Atlanta, Georgia, quintet delivers 15 jaded, jagged slivers of rock ‘n’ roll that fly by faster than suburbs on the freeway. There are touches of ‘80s outfits such as Love Tractor, the Cramps, and even Joe Jackson. There’s also a dash of angst that’s of today but not much that holds the attention twixt the moment the opening chords come in and Aguero starts singing the first verse. Only two tracks clock in at over the three-minute mark, but it’s just as well—being mercifully short we can find the end of the record much faster that way. Tiger! Tiger! isn’t a band that can’t write or play, it’s just a band that hasn’t found a convincing voice. Not yet, at least.
