Fond of Tigers- "SOHEB" ‡ STREAM


As last night's blogTV, no band impressed me more than this one. They're Fond of Tigers, a Canadian outfit who had my eyes rolling into the back of my head. And as my eyeballs were staring directly into my brain, I saw nothing but images of King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Fridge, Envy, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Gentle Giant. From that band list, you can tell it was a lot to take in at once.

I had never heard of them before, but it turns out they've been kicking for a while. They have a new album out this year, too: Continent & Western. You can stream the first track I heard below, and click here for another. This album is out now via Drip Audio.
