Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Real Live Tigers

I was searching Erin Day's myspace site and saw that she is finally making her way East side and one of her stops happens to be Fountain, NC on June 11th. Well I have never heard of Fountain, but there it is, just East of Wilson. Anyway she's playing the R.A. Fountain General Store with Real Live Tigers and Dustin the Furniture. I decided to check these other guys out since their playing with Erin and by now my enjoyment of her music has grown into an infatuation.

Real Live Tigers is, has been, and will always be Tony Presley. His songs are "often about wonder, about dreams, secrets, and moments." Lately they are sparse and quiet with only a nylon-string guitar and his voice. Staying busy through 2005, playing over 140 shows and releasing two albums, one proper and one of demos, Sadness is a Gentleman and There is a Storm that Sleeps Inside Us (demos), this Austin based troubadour has just released the Hospital Songs EP and will be touring the US this Spring and Europe this Summer.

If you are into minimal folk, old country, and/or the work of guitar legends such as Robert Johnson and Django Reinhart, then I would definitely recommend checking out Real Live Tigers. I'm hoping to get a copy of his latest release for a full review, but until then, enjoy a few tracks from his website from various releases.

.: No Regrets (from Hospital Songs EP )

.: Already Scarecrows (from There is a Storm that Sleeps Inside Us demos)
.: Sober as a Songbird (from There is a Storm that Sleeps Inside Us demos)
.: Two Goldfish (from There is a Storm that Sleeps Inside Us demos)

.: Weight in Nails (from Sadness is a Gentleman)
.: She Was a Friend of Mine (from Sadness is a Gentleman)
