From “North of Massachusetts” (Maine, to be more exact), Tiny Fires is a musical trip through a truly impressive range of influences. Featuring members of Tiger Saw, South China, Brown Bird, and a variety of other two-word-named bands, i pick up hints of The Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, and, for some reason, My Bloody Valentine. But by no means are they come off as derivative. Even when they cover a traditional song like Sinner Man (popularized both by Nina Simone and The Wailers), they completely make it their own.

Song List:

1. Wild at Heart 03:15 2. Certain Ghosts 05:02 3. Stronger Than Wedding Rings 03:40 4. Magpies 04:59 5. Sinner Man 03:36 6. Beacon 04:35 7. Dreaming Through Days 02:33
