Bimini (7" Release Party!)
Bimini is a project by Sander Travisano, bassist of the Florida instrumental quartet The Mercury Program. Since relocating to Brooklyn in 2004, Travisano has branched out, starting a number of new projects, including Bimini and the Brooklyn based band Pagan Girls. Bimini's current line up includes long time collaborator Dave LeBleu and brother Whitney Travisano, as well as fellow Pagan Girl bandmate Peter Bartsocas.
While many songs borrow their sound from the grit and dirt of garage rock, they also take their cues from the thick bass lines of old soul- it would be easy to imagine them scoring found footage from an old super 8. Anchored in driving rhythms, there is a sense of immediacy to their songs, balanced by the occasional ethereal shimmer of a Fender Rhodes. Travisano's vocals welcome the new found grit--raw and weathered like drift wood, with songs producing a sense of the longing for simpler times and the woes of the working stiff. This is music for all those who would rather be barefooted at the grocery on the way home from the beach than shuffling oxfords on the platform waiting for the express train home.
Tiger Dare makes atmospheric dream pop in Brooklyn. Formed when Mike Zorrilla and Henry Freedland discovered a shared affinity for music with in-headphone intimacy and spacey, shimmering guitars, the band has grown to include the talents of bassist Michael Kirby and drummer Pete Hilton. Debut record Wires Over, Wired In translates slowcore, shoegaze, psych and indie pop influences to offer up hushed vocals and intricate arrangements, unburdened by gravity or friction; a dream-machine in motion. These are subtle anthems for the open-hearted, peering into the lost and found of looking-glass time and endeavoring to find some simple, off-screen truths in a weird and wired world.
