The Prids
So The Prids didn't form their band last year when they met in college, or 6 months ago when they met at a show, and this isn't their debut release. It's extremely fair to say The Prids have been around the block a few times.

To keep it short and sweet : David Frederickson (guitars, vocals) and Mistina La Fave (bass, vocals) started their band together over a decade ago in rural Missouri. They released a slew of 7"s,eps, and full lengths. They relocated to several cities before landing in beautiful Portland, OR where they now reside. Also of not is the fact that the two fell in love, were married, were divorced, and yet the band continued on. Maile Arruda (keys) and Lee Zeman (drums) round out The Prids sound.

'Chronosynclastic' is the culmination of the Prids life experiences, song writing, playing, and recording. The result is a stunning collection of down right lovable, off kilter, pop songs. Melancholy in feeling, but moving fast enough to appear happy on the surface. The soaring melodies, and the dual boy / girl vocals is the band's foundation. Then you add in David's perfect guitar hooks (remiiniscent of some of Joey Santiago's famous early Pixies guitar lines), heartfelt lyrics, and the pulsing rhythm section and you come out with songs that you want to hear over and over again. David explains the theme of the record to be "About the passing of time, the perception of time, and the marks that are left on our lives".

They site such bands as The Smiths, Unrest, Jesus and Mary Chain, Built to Spill (by the way Doug Marstch of Built to Spill is a fan of the band too, and plays some of his guitar magic on Chronosynclastic), Wire,and Sonic Youth as being influences. While some of their influences can be heard, mostly they just sound like The Prids !

We hope you enjoy the new record as much as we do, and by all means go see them at a show and say hi. (they are really nice ! )

Willamette Week likened Moon Tiger to "Sleater-Kinney singing noise-pop sea shanties…. Driving, distorted guitars buzz against primal drumming and the melodic hum of accordion, while the vocals shift from harmoniously dreamy to soulfully bluesy depending on who’s delivering them…” Moon Tiger is a five piece rock band from Portland, Oregon featuring Meagan Schreiber (Vocals, Guitar), Alicia J. Rose (Vocals, Accordion), Alison Cohn (Vocals, Guitar), Taylor Hill (Bass, Guitar) and Shawna Gore (Drums).
