Holy shit, this album is unreal. There are times when you hear a new band and just know they are going to be huge.  Athens-based, Twin Tigers is one of them. Their debut LP, Gray Waves, out today on Old Flame Records is an epic assault of psychedelic, shoegaze rock.  Jaw dropping good. The kinda stuff that’ll make you swoon. The kinda band that “could dismantle The Silversun Pickups from their perch.” The kinda sound that will keep you coming back for more. Get into this band is all I have left to say.

Need help?  Okay. I have a handful of albums to giveaway to the first readers to email and claim them.  Then head on out to The Rumble SF this Wednesday to hear them live…for free!  RSVP here. And if that doesn’t work, then I’m sorry. You’re a lost cause and need to seek help elsewhere.
