Editorial Review

Reedy '80s synths, falsetto vocal harmonies, staccato guitars: New York's Tigercity (listen) makes music that could slot into an episode of Yacht Rock. The foursome's throwback is equal parts blue-eyed soul, post-disco thump and new-wave rock, complete with unironic handclaps. (We think.) It's fantastic party music, so prepare to dance at DC9. Kindred spirits Mother/Father, whose taut, reverb-heavy sound recalls Echo and the Bunnymen, opens.
