PRESS RELEASE: NOW AVAILABLE: Tigue's sophomore album "Strange Paradise"
"impressive layers of tumult"
— New York Times
"an entrancing and glittering cluster of drum circle-like thuds and thwacks, meditative splatter, and weird candied poptones"
— The Brooklyn Rail
"simultaneously lighthearted and cerebral, casual and austere...asks the listener to engage with sounds just at the edge of their comfort zone."
New Amsterdam Records is excited to announce the release of Strange Paradise, the sophomore album from Brooklyn-based composer-performer percussion trio Tigue. Out now on NewAm (CD + digital) and NNA Tapes (vinyl), the album follows the group’s widely-celebrated debut album, Peaks (2015).
