Mister Tang from Portland, Oregon in the USA is the garage rock trio of Stone Laurila (Drums / Vocals), Jeff Schultz (Guitar / Vocals) and Cody Railey (Bass).
Cast aside formalities, Mister Tang create music that is straight from the hip. Not seeking to provide technicalities, the trio is able to provide the listener with an earthy realism that gives the sounds an immediate connection. During the couple of years of their existence they have naturally gained a confidence and more defined sound in which they excel, though haven’t lost the initial zest as distorted fuzz recoils around the room.
Mister Tang have honed their craft through live performance growing an expanding loyal fan-base and their music which transcends national boundaries deserves of even broader recognition. The tightness of the tracks gives the music a thumping concentration that buffers its way into the brain.
An early EP has been followed by two singles, the last back in April (all of which are available on bandcamp). I look forward to hearing more of Mister Tang and hope they are considering putting out a full-length for those of us not in the vicinity.
