The Republic Tigers

This debut album from Kansas City's meteoric rocket boys not only exceeded the hype but also curled hype's hair, smeared its lipstick, spanked it three times and pushed it into a bush. There's not a weak moment on the Republic Tigers' stunning Keep Color. From the illusory, acoustic-electric landscapes of "Buildings & Mountains" to the heart-drowning vocal ocean of "Cast On, Cast Off," this album has more moments of musical transcendence than can be digested in one or even 100 rotations. As Radiohead did with OK Computer 10 years ago, the Tigers offer a glimpse of music's next level.
