Album Notes
Tiger Saw formed at the turn of the century in a hotel in Los Angeles, where Dylan Metrano wrote much of their self-produced winter 1999 album How To Be Timeless Tonight. He brought his creations back to his hometown of Newburyport, a seaside town 40 miles to the north of Boston. There the slow, quiet and decidedly non-rock sound of his band tended to frustrate its players, who came and went in the tradition of the loose-knit jazz combos of a generation or two ago. By 2000, a line-up had finally solidified.

Tiger Saw play songs of innocence and experience. Tempestuous bedroom songs are their metier. Blessed are the Trials We Will Find is fraught with emotion, a recording both tense and intense--like a first kiss. Sometimes lush and majestic, at other times austere and introspective, Blessed's sound brings to mind some sort of dream lullaby or timeless prayer. But these are not cradlesongs, unless mixes of guitar, cello, viola, bass, drums, melodica, organ, and trumpet are standard accompaniment to a mother's coo. And they are not entreaties to some divine being.unless, of course, that divine being is you.

The antecedents for Tiger Saw's beguiling music: mid-to-late era Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500, Leonard Cohen. Present day practitioners in a similar tradition: Low, Red House Painters, Ida, Cowboy Junkies.

Blessed are the Trials We Will Find was recorded throughout 2001 at The Longhouse with members of Boston bands Clairvoyants and Skating Club producing and engineering.
