Tigers Jaw makes the kind of music that does strange things to people. In the few years they’ve been together, the group and its ever morphing lineup (with Adam McIlwee and Ben Walsh as the two constant members) has established itself as one of the most creative in the Scranton scene (creative bands in Scranton being few and far between these days notwithstanding). We fell in love with them from the start. Beginning with the excellent Belongs To The Dead on Summersteps Records, they have astounded us with a series of releases—including mysterious side projects like Buona Pizza and Jewish War Veterans—containing one incredible song after another. That these songs came to us buried in tape hiss and murk only added to their mystique.
Pianos Become the Teeth
Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Brimming with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, Old Pride breathes new life into a once decaying scene
Derrick Sherman is active touring guitarist in the indie rock band Brand New. Francesco Montesanto is active in his role as drummer for long island upstarts, Wee Hounds. Sainthood Reps was formed in february ’09 while Brand New was home recording.
Their sound has been described as “delicately atmospheric and progressive yet rather heady indie rock”
