Tiger High puts Memphis garage rock back on the map with ‘Myth Is This’ debut

Memphis-based garage rock quartet Tiger High distributed their debut studio record, “Myth Is This,” in 2012. Read all about the album’s Phil Spector, Wall of Sound-inspired aesthetic — reverb and tons of delayed echo — albeit with a psychedelic, punk rock edge.

Tiger High’s Myth Is This is an unbelievably strong debut album for an up and coming indie garage rock band. Featuring passionate vocals and tight instrumentation, the record proves that there is an alternative to the auto-tuned, unimaginatively programmed beats permeating much of modern radio.
