Comment: it makes no surprise altogether Tarred Brigade comes out from Baltimore, Maryland, USA because of representing either a second or a third wave of the New Weird America movement. For instance, all of us used to recognise the fact Animal Collective came initially out from this city though musically Tarred Brigade is a bit different, a bit more countryfied case. It is recorded on a 4-track recorder being rustic and majestic at the same time, being abrasive and hypnotic at the same time, being bucolic and solemn simultaneously. Its droning earnest halation being frequently mixed up with psychedelic templates may remind more of such combos as Espers, Six Organs Of Admittance, and Children Of The Drone (the last one is an improvisational combo from Exeter, UK). For sure, additionally to the aforementioned folk element there are also up certain indie facets and the downright Americana tradition. On the other side, at I Fear An Eclipse the listener can figure out a combo to be influenced by a British act called Penguin Cafe Orchestra. The only (format-based) problem is about the amount of the tracks represented over there. In my folder there are up 6 tracks in comparison to the amount of 4-tracks at Free Music Heroes (it is devoid of such compositions as Haunting the Majesties!, and My Jewish Blues). It might be these are the hidden ones while one is downloading the release. Outstanding issue in any cases.
