Song of the Day – Friday 9/3/2010 Tamaryn September 3, 2010

Recently named as one of Sterogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2010, San Francisco’s very own shoegazing duo, Tamaryn are comprised of Tamaryn on vocals and guitarist/producer Rex John Shelverton.   Tamaryn (the singer) describes their sound as “atmospheric, emotional and deliberate.  It has a big range.  But if you’re talking more genre-specific, I think that’s a little harder because there are a lot of different things involved.  A lot of people say shoegaze, a lot of people say death rock with gothic overtones.  I also hear dreampop. I think it’s a mix of a lot of things.  It’s taking a lot of things I love and fusing it through my own interpretation.”

Tamaryn (the band) are releasing their debut album on the Mexican Summer label, The Waves on 9/7/2010 digitally and 9/14/2010 on vinyl and CD.  Rex describes the devlopment of The Waves sound as an “idea of a ‘minimalist wall of sound’ and using the most sparse arrangement possible, all the while creating a semi-translucent, mysterious dreamscape [which] keeps the dynamics of the playing subtle enough so the listener never wakes from the dream or is jarred from the story.”

You can sway back and forth and gaze at your shoes when Tamaryn plays the Elbo Room for their record release party on 9/15/2010…
