Album Review

The six songs on Call & Response's Tiger Teeth EP were cut as demos for Emperor Norton in 2002. The group never got a response from the label and when their contract with them ran out, the band owned the masters.

The songs are more mature and organic sounding than the group's first album but they retain much of the bounce that had disappeared by the time of Winds.

Only the introspective "Curves in a Straight Line" shows any indication of the direction the band would be taking. Although the songs sound slightly unfinished at times, Tiger Teeth is an important and enjoyable release from one of the most enjoyable indie pop bands around.
