Kudos (Fire Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Sand & Lines (One Percent Press). Review by Matthew Moyer.
What happens when a lost classic gets found? In the hands of Black Tambourine, the musical world becomes a better place, turns out. Matthew Moyer corrals the members of the once-forgotten noisepop band to get the whole sordid take on their expanded Black Tambourine reissue.
