Tangiers - Hot New Spirits
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Tangiers - Hot New SpiritsToronto’s answer to The Strokes. Guitarist Yuri Didrichsons and bassist James Sayce paid their dues with local garage gods The Deadly Snakes, while drummer Marco Moniz did time with soul-punkers The Killer Elite. Together with guitarist Josh Reichmann, the band concocts a feisty sound that blends London’s 1960s’ mod style with New York’s ’70s punk attitude. Unafraid of harmonica solos or feedback, Tangiers really rock out on the frenetic “Here Come the Pieces” and the yelping “Keep the Living Bodies Warm.”
