Psapp's TIGER, MY FRIEND starts off with some field recordings before shifting into an island-influenced "Rear Moth," a touch of joyousness, while "Leaving In Coffins" gets twitchy with its instrumentation. Through it all, Durant's sweet vocals float on top. Is it all twee? Sure it is, but that's not a knock against it. "Calm Down" starts with music box twinkles before morphing into a more melancholy tone, while "About Fun" takes you to the ballroom for a dance. "Curuncula" goes for a more folksy vein, and "The Counter" follows in a simpler, stripped-down fashion. But the final, title track, layers on the voices in a lo-fi setting, and despite the lyrics of "You're always the same," Psapp shows that they're something quite different.
