    As I listened to Blind Tigers' new music for the first time, I was really struggling to figure out how to think of them. The guitars are distorted and aggressive, making me think it's for the hard rock crowd and yet their progression make me think hooks all day. Then singer Dia Thompson's sweet but sinister voice over top of it all make me wonder even more where to fit this band.

    When I actually looked at the tracklist for the first time while listening to track 5 of the 6 song EP, I realized they did all the work for me. The song's title, "Violent Pop," is an extremely accurate description for them. Blind Tigers is hard enough for you to gnarl along with their passion but also keep the beat along with their occasional synchronized clapping and ooohs and ahhhhs. 

    The EP entitled Mosquito wraps up in about 19 minutes but they make the most of it. There is hardly a dull moment in this release and you can expect more of the same at the release show this Saturday at Modern Cult Records. The all ages show starts at 8 p.m. with openers Satellite Twin and Opposable Thumbs. A $5 donation is requested but no one will be turned away because of lack of funds. BYOB. Mosquito comes in cassette form with a digital download. 

    Here is a preview of the EP by way of their song "Do Or Die"
