Three Trapped Tigers: Silent Earthling (Gatefold black 2LP+CD)

Three Trapped Tigers are the forerunners of UK’s underground instrumental noise scene, renowned as a formidable live act that defies simple categorization. TTT’s brutal but beautiful brand of synth-laden experimental rock has earned them fans around the world including Deftones and Brian Eno, whose ‘Oblique Strategies’ system they employed during the writing stage of the album. Formed in 2007 and initially inspired to replicate the high octane programming and ecstatic melodies of Warp luminaries Squarepusher and Aphex Twin (filtered though the sensibilities of noise duo Lightning Bolt) as a live band, TTT have made a habit of leaving audiences stunned with their incendiary energy and jaw-dropping musicianship, with an expansive sound that belies their trio format. Previously described as clash between Fugazi and Aphex Twin, praised as “the sound of imagination itself” NME (UK) or “nothing you’ve ever heard” (Rock Sound), "Silent Earthling" is a prime example of daring, cutting-edge music, and a great addition to Superball acts like 65daysofstatic or Maybeshewill. The vinyl edition comes as 180 gram double LP incl. etching on side D, and CD as bonus.
