We’re excited to be working with Brooklyn-based indie pop band Jackpot, Tiger who will release their self-titled sophomore album on May 13th.
Dingus premiered the first track “Caught In Love” today and said:
“’Caught in Love’ is one of those really good pop songs… It’s got a chorus that makes you want to bust out your very best hand-clapping skills and you’ll probably go horse from singing it at the top of your lungs.”
Jackpot, Tiger follows the release of The Sweet & Savory EP (2010) and their debut full-length album Chemistry Night (2012). Unlike Chemistry Night, which was recorded over the span of three days, Jackpot, Tiger has been nearly two years in the making, recorded back and forth between Moon Lab Studios in Brooklyn, N.Y. and Frisbie Studios in New York, N.Y. This album marks an entirely different approach from the fast, spastic energy of the first record, resulting in a denser, layered sound andgreater synergistic force.
Jackpot, Tiger’s influences merge the classic songwriting traditions of artists such as Brian Wilson, Big Star, and Joni Mitchell with raucous 90’s power-pop (a la Pavement, Weezer). All four members – Claire McGinley, Eryck Tait, Kevin McGinley and Alex Kahn - switch instruments and roles constantly, even during their live shows, keeping the audience on their toes. Kahn, Claire McGinley, and Tait share songwriting responsibilities, creating lyrics and songs that shift through three unique perspectives while funneled through the same machine that is Jackpot, Tiger.
Join the band for the NYC CD release show on May 12 at Mercury Lounge, followed by the release of Jackpot, Tiger on May 13, 2014.
