Review: Tiger Suit by KT Tunstall
Several years ago, after hearing a few songs by KT Tunstall on the radio, I picked up her album, Eye to the Telescope, and was blown away. Though I'm a lover of female rockers, there hasn't been many new faces in mainstream music that I thought were worth listening to these last few years.
Her voice is beautiful and distinctive, her musical style was pretty unique at the time, and her interviews read as quirky and smart.
I recently had to opportunity to review her new album, Tiger Suit, which is available in stores, and on Amazon now.
Musically, KT went in a whole different direction with this album, in a style she's describing as "nature-techno." Instead of being sort of folky acoustic stuff like Eye to the Telescope, this is dance music. In all honesty, while I still think she has a gorgeous voice, and admire her willingness to go out on a limb and do something different, I preferred the first album. Maybe I'm too much of a rock purist. :)
I'll be anxious to see what she does next, though. She's one to watch.
