Great mellow pop from Chicago...

This band is overall pretty chill, which great arrangements and harmonies.

Critical Praise for We Moved Like Ghosts

"Track a Tiger lures you in with its Low-like vocals, then lulls you with an Iron & Wine-y twang." - Magnet "We Moved Like Ghosts takes the best elements of Yo La Tengo and pre-Mellon Collie Smashing Pumpkins boy / girl vocals and washed out hazy guitars and leaves behind the chaff. This album won't rock your socks off - nor does it aim to - but in a world of self-imitation and tedious pretension, Track a Tiger have made an album of highly polished melodic pop gems that truly outshines their contemporaries." - Verbicide "Track a Tiger is a Chicago band picking up comparisons to mega stars in the indie-rock world such as Yo La Tengo, Low and Iron and Wine. This is because there is a genuine experimental quality to this lo-fi, highly creative band on We Moved Like Ghosts. This outfit's mix of quiet music and unique instrumental arrangement is immediately apparent with the brief, but beautiful opening track Saint About To Fall and continues throughout the album. The songs are atmospheric, fresh, fuzzy, warm and all around delightful. I would describe Track a Tiger as an unpretentious electro- folk rock band with a really nice marriage of male and female vocals. A fantastic new release!" - The Big Takeover "The best quality of Track a Tiger is its ability to conjure thoughts of Low, Yo La Tengo and Iron & Wine and then so convincingly, so smoothly, make the sound its own. On We Moved Like Ghosts, the band's newest on Deep Elm Records, the first song is a brooding, Low-like warning called Saint About to Fall, and it's immediately followed by a more upbeat, indie-rock gem called Don't Make a Weapon; the boy-girl harmonies on both are crushing. Light follows, an atmospheric beauty, and then the more traditional, but just as pleasing, pop song All These Accidents, and afterwards it's unbelievable that you're only four songs in." - New City Chicago "Track a Tiger aren't resting on the laurels of their debut one bit. We Moved Like Ghosts has more dreamy indie-pop for you and yours. The influences haven't changed much (the fuzzed-out bliss of Yo La Tengo and Wilco is a huge wellspring), but the band has gained in confidence and ability to wield its predilections on even stronger material. The bleed from the standout Light into another standout All These Accidents is masterful. The former opens with spoken-word French and is peppered liberally throughout with sparkling keyboard effects, and the odd bedfellow of a banjo's gentle clucking. From the pedal steel, strings and horns on Sometimes Love Runs Out to the sunny, seductive groove of With Stars Down, Track a Tiger appears close to felling the elusive prey of wider acclaim." - Pop Matters "Track a Tiger masterfully achieves subdued but impacting compositions sweetened with many instrumental accruals that don't lose site of the fundamentals of a good song. Even better, We Moved Like Ghosts alternates between contemplation and buoyancy with nary a hint of awkwardness. So the jaunty, road-ready Don't Make a Weapon, with its bewitchingly blemished melodies, segues naturally into the floor-sweeping acoustic guitars on Light that are coupled with a wall of twinkling electronic sound. The fact Track a Tiger is able to wring such mirthful noise from lo-fi conceptions is a noteworthy achievement. Bless the few, the proud, who offer hope in unlikely packages." - Nuvo Weekly

We Moved Like Ghosts

This is one of the few albums I can listen to bell to bell and still find something interesting to keep me going back. After years of consuming Track a Tiger's music, I'm surprised they have not "broken out" and become one of the most popular indie bands in Chicago. They stack up with any pop/indie/lowfi/hazy artists not only in Chicago, but the country. My only suspicion and possibly compliant is that they seem to change line-ups relatively often and their live shows are less than extraordinary. I've seen them twice and found both performances less than spirited. If Track a Tiger could translate their recorded music in to an energetic live experience, they'd fill up every club they play. Word travels fast in the Chicago/Midwest indie rock circuit and if the live show momentum gets going, Track A Tiger will be well known and loved by a lot of music fans. All the above said, the music is fantastic and I hope more and more people get turned on to it!
