WHILE an album remains elusive, London live IDM band Three Trapped Tigers have a third EP, EP3, out on Monday - and it's well worth raiding the kitty for.
A post-rock band whose goal is to reproduce the electronica of acts like Autechre and Aphex Twin on standard guitar, keyboards, bass and drums instrumentation, and three releases in, following EP and EP2, the sound is close to being honed.
The group build songs they way the people of Babel built towers, with rising and falling drumbeats and percussion, irregular guitar, synth drones and vocal moans creating an engaging experimental cacophony.
I for one can't wait for Three Trapped Tigers to let loose with a full album.
