We’ve not been doing anything on here for a while now but are starting work on a new site. Until that site is up and running we are doing some updates on our new Facebook page. Like us and follow it for some regular Underwater Tiger news.


We’ve been gone, but we’re coming back!

I started to accidentally forget how much I like Deerhunter. Luckily this video reminded me and made me think I’m going to be enjoying their new album Halcyon Digest too. It’s out on 4AD on September 28th.

Seeing Chromeo live in Brighton a while back, after Fancy Footwork came out, was such a fun night. So I highly recommend it and now you have your chance as they’re on tour (and with Neon Indian too!). A couple of new tracks can be heard on their myspace where you can also see a list of tour dates. The new songs are Don’t Turn The Light On and a Green Label Sound single release Night By Night with a video below. (Take notes for some good moves)

Loving this song. And loving the video just as much. Made with over 2000 water colour paintings. WOW!

I’m loving Delorean’s album Subiza especially with this good weather. Check out the video for Stay Close.

You can also hear a live studio performance by Delorean on BBC Radio 6 Music here – (about 1hr40 in to it)

This is a bit delayed but whatever….

We went to see Washed Out and Small Black play in Brighton about a month ago. Apart from the power getting cut in to Ernest’s second song it was a great gig. I thought Small Black sounded really good live and they played a new song which I’m eager to hear when that gets recorded. Then not too long after I saw Washed Out (helped out by the guys from Small Black) play live in Paris. It was outside, next to the canal, great weather and free! As it was their last performance playing together they finished their set with Wased Out’s remix of Dispicable Dogs (by Small Black) which was out on their split 7.

Below check out Washed Out’s most recent song.

Washout Out – You And I

Cool video for Guys Eyes by Animal Collective. Been a while since I listened to anything off of MPP actually. Glad I saw this to have a good re-listen.

Yawning Gulf is Jack Ryder from Hove, UK. His self titled debut album Yawning Gulf‘ is a 15 track instrumental album recorded and mixed from a home studio, it is a 100 copy release, each CD case hand-finished.

The music is refreshingly different to a lot of what is swirling into the music abyss at the moment. While an ocean of chillwave influenced scenesters are doing their best to live up to what the likes of Toro y Moi and co. have created Yawning Gulf has been working away creating a very unique musical journey of his own.

From simple guitar melodies that carry the stylings of a positive Elliott Smith through Japanese Forests to layer rich beach music that is a carried by a Pet Sounds influence. I really dig the subtle motifs that you hear left behind as the sounds fade out. A totally diverse album that feels as though it is almost autobiographical.

”A beautiful album of home-made instrumental ditties put together by Brighton producer/musician Jack Ryder. Using found sounds alongside ‘real’ instruments including piano & guitar, these are all relatively short pieces that bring to mind the heart-warming work of artists such as Tape or early Mum along with the playfulness of Hauschka. Much like the photo of a sun-kissed ranch in the middle of rolling hills & trees on the inside sleeve (taken by Ryder himself incidentally), these songs transport you somewhere well away from the hustle & bustle of the city to somewhere altogether more lovely. If you enjoy the sound experiments of any of the aforementioned, this is most definitely for you. Very highly recommended. Local” – Resident Records, Brighton.
