Fond of Tigers - Continent & Western

The 2010 release from Fond of Tigers.

Continent & Western–simultaneously more experimental and more accessible than previous Fond of Tigers releases–shows the band honing its unique blend of avant-garde textures and post-rock structures while expanding its range to include vocals and additional members. Toronto's SandroPerri (Constellation Records) lends vocals and lyrics to "Vitamin Meathawk", while Swedish experimenter Mats Gustafsson brings his intense saxophone and electronics push to "Grandad".

"The moments of serenity and tradition spliced into collages of chaos and urgency are as captivating as they are conflicting and certainly better heard than read. " - Read the full review at Herohill.com

"Fond of Tigers almost possesses the power to make "jazz/rock" not such a heinous and unsavory genre..." - Montreal Mirror
