Tiger Saw - Blessed are the Trials We Will Find

Tiger Saw - Blessed are the Trials We Will Find (front cover)

Full-length CD
Mar 2002

Tiger Saw play songs of innocence and experience. Tempestuous bedroom songs are their metier. Blessed are the Trials We Will Find is fraught with emotion, a recording both tense and intense--like a first kiss. Sometimes lush and majestic, at other times austere and introspective, Blessed's sound brings to mind some sort of dream lullaby or timeless prayer. But these are not cradlesongs, unless mixes of guitar, cello, viola, bass, drums, melodica, organ, and trumpet are standard accompaniment to a mother's coo. And they are not entreaties to some divine being.unless, of course, that divine being is you.

The antecedents for Tiger Saw's beguiling music: mid-to-late era Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500, Leonard Cohen. Present day practitioners in a similar tradition: Low, Red House Painters, Ida, Cowboy Junkies.

Blessed are the Trials We Will Find was recorded throughout 2001 at The Longhouse with members of Boston bands Clairvoyants and Skating Club producing and engineering.
