“Tiger Bites” makes visible the heights of warmth and generosity that are possible using the electric guitar. The use of repetition is at the heart of this tape’s brilliance, an understanding of how an instrumental piece can teach its listeners a language. Subtle dynamics, the way sounds thin away and vanish or drift into consciousness is perhaps the most satisfying aspect of this tape. There are occasional moments of disruption, thoughtfully placed to avoid sleepiness or complete disappearance. I’ve seen a number of artists yearn towards the place that Sorrow Family Band seem to find effortlessly, and it is a great joy to listen to this set of songs.
