Tiger Saw - Sing!

Front Cover

Full-length CD
Oct 2005

Last winter, singer/guitarist Dylan Metrano gathered fifteen friends from the up-and-coming Newburyport, MA music scene and assembled them into a misfit orchestra and a makeshift choir to produce the most ambitious Tiger Saw album to date.

Sing!'s tunes were developed while Tiger Saw were on tour behind their previous and second disc, Gimme Danger/Gimme Sweetness. The tour, which crossed the United States and Great Britain, found the band performing at a myriad of unorthodox venues, from suburban basements and theaters to beaches, forests, and bonfires. These intimate settings led to impromptu singalongs with the audience, and night after night of unforgettable communal experiences.

The ten Tiger Saw songs on Sing! were inspired by these sing-alongs, written to incorporate a large choir, and arranged for the album by Clairvoyants' Brian Dunn. They are linked by themes of friendship, community, nature, and romance, and compose a song cycle performed by the group of friends whose shared history and deep connections are revealed in Metrano's direct and honest lyrics. This album sees core members Metrano, cellist/vocalist Juliet Nelson (Unbunny, Cul de Sac) and guitarist John Ryan Gallagher (The Divorced) joined by pianist Casey Dienel, upright bassist Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), and drummer Gregg Porter (Unbunny, Little Wings, Hotel Alexis). As on Gimme Danger, substantial contributions are made by slide guitarist and banjo player blindbanjodjim (Milkweed) and Jason Anderson (Wolf Colonel, The Microphones). And also featured are the voices of Nikole Beckwith, Alan Bull, Lindsay Clark, Kryce Clayton, Brian Dunn, and Mary Fahey.

Sing! reveals Tiger Saw evolving from the melancholy, slowcore roots of their earlier years toward a celebratory and joyous, yet still tender sound.
