It has certainly been an action packed journey for siblings Ivan and Ada (ages 15 and 13 respectively), aka Tiny Masters Of Today. Almost overnight, the band went from a few homemade recordings on MySpace to collaborating with Karen O and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kimya Dawson, Fred Schneider (The B-52's) and Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), being remixed by CSS and Liars, and touring the world. David Bowie even lauded their first homemade single as "Genius". Not bad for a band that double as full-time students in the New York Public School System.
With Skeletons, the Tiny Masters went it totally alone, producing and writing the entire album themselves. The tracks were largely recorded at their home in Brooklyn, using the computer program Garageband. They brought the songs to Seaside Lounge studio with engineer Patrick McCarthy for additional recording and the final product was mixed by Matt Stein at U.W.M.S.C. in New York.
Ivan和Ada,两个纽约小孩,一个94年出生,一个96年出生.2005年他们只有11岁和9岁的时候就在Myspace发一些家庭录制的一些自己搞的小玩意儿.不久他们就被Blues Explosion的鼓手Russell Simins发掘,2007年在他们13岁和11岁的时候就发行了第一张专辑《Bang Bang Boom Cake》,Kimya Dawson和Yeah Yeah Yeahs的主唱Karen O这样的大牌都参与了专辑的制作,并且专辑得到了包括Russell Simins (Blues Explosion), Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), Fred Schneider (The B-52's) 的协助(这么多我喜欢的牛逼乐队协助 能不牛逼吗),我只能说,这个乐队能得到布鲁斯大爆炸的鼓手和b-52s的主唱的支持绝对会融入更多东西,少不了一种美国地下,噪音摇滚和一些玩闹气息的.
Fans of Tiny Masters' familiar shouting, sloganeering, and general anti-establishment nose thumbing won't be disappointed, but the sonic palette has broadened somewhat. While their rag-tag sound is clearly informed by classic-era punk rock, they think nothing of incorporating hip-hop, electronica, dub, and even disco into a messy and uproarious concoction. The end result is frantic and funny, equally poignant and pugnacious. Politically charged and strikingly original, a curious pastiche of styles and subjects all channeled through their own, unique filter.
