Tiger Village - "Cascades"

New MusicadminComment

With some synths that sound like they're on their dying breaths and some absolutely batshit rhythms, this new track from Tiger Village has me looking forward to this project's forthcoming tape via Hausu Mountain. The release date: October 21st. The title of this thing: V.

If you didn't already know, Tiger Village is spearheaded by producer, multi-instrumentalist, and lone wolf Tim Thornton, and I've got to know what else this dude's capable off after hearing this track. I love his use of distortion and a generally lo-fi aesthetic, but he manages to pack it with so much detail in this single track. And I'm not just talking about sonic detail, but compositional, too.

"Cascades" literally does what its title states as one strange musical passage psychedelically folds into another. The song's quirky, glitch-heavy beginnings are a surprising contrast from some of the epic and tense synth sequences that occur in the middle of this track. The ending is quite cacophonous, but still quite different when eating up the minor details beyond the flurry of synths and percussion. A dizzying track, for sure!
