Track A Tiger – We Moved Like Ghosts
Label: Deep Elm
Release Date: May 22, 2006
One of the first Deep Elm discs to be released in a limited run of only 1000 copies. Track A Tiger aren’t consistent with the more popular “Hearts Bleed Blue” emo acts the Delaware label is famous for, but not too shockingly the boys at Deep Elm’s ear for good twee-pop laced with alt-country influences is just as good.
How is it?:
I could use a lot of superlative and say things like We Moved Like Ghosts is flush with blankets of near-melancholy and enveloping soundscapes reminiscent of the best acts on such stalwart labels as Matador and Polyvinyl. Actually, umm…yea.
Need more proof that this disc is hip? Amelie is perhaps the most annoying/cliché film to make scenester film lists outside of Donnie Darko and the French accent that pops up on the euphoric guitar swagger that is “Light” would make the track a near perfect soundtrack for the little French pixie’s faux trip to SXSW.
Dream a little twang: “I Speak To You With A Single Heart”, “Light”
How many bands want to beat your ass: Yo La Tengo, Headlights, Iron & Wine
