“But don’t get too attached to the living, even every single memory is fleeting.”
At two records in and with a number of national tours under their belt, I can hardly sit here and rhapsodize about how As Tall As Lions is some big secret that needs unleashing. I wouldn’t hesitate to put forth, however, that a good number of you are still in the dark when it comes to Long Island’s newest indie-rock success story. Passionate, slow crawling melodies escalate into near epic choruses made possible by frontman Dan Nigro’s tremendous vocal capacity. Doesn’t sound like something to be ignored, does it? The two cuts below come from the band’s eponymous sophomore album from East West/Triple Crown Records. Their debut album, which is as equally commendable, is entitled Lafcadio and is also available in stores.
