SKU: PEL067DL Categories: , , Tag:


Tiny Fingers, hailing from Tel Aviv, Israel, combine post- rock, live electronics, psychedelic, dub step and math rock into one super-intense and truly unique musical melange. With broken beats, creative use of guitar effects and fat analogue and synthesized bass assaults, they manage to reconcile the rough intensity of rock with the clean ecstasy of electronic music. Despite the players’ quite obvious technical proficiency, their songs always stay refreshingly catchy and musical.

Tiny Fingers are one of the leading forces in the Israeli alternative music scene, and considered the pioneers of the uprising new local psychedelic rock scene. The band has already released 5 albums, and has toured intensively throughout Asia, the US ad Europe in recent years. Now, in April 2016, they are coming back to Europe alongside LONG DISTANCE CALLING. An emerging festival favorite both in their home country and abroad, their live act is a mind blowing experience of futuristic sounds and visuals, which has led them to be handpicked to open for The Mars Volta, Damian Marley, Dub Trio, All Them Witches and many more.

„Megafauna“ is Tiny Fingers’ third album. Recorded live in the studio in 2012, „Megafauna“ is an explosive session which captures the relentless energy of the band’s live shows, but with a clean studio production. Before the recording session, the band spent 3 weeks together in the studio, going through an artistic and technical journey. All the sound layers were produced and recorded live, with no overdubs or additional editing and processing applied. The concept was to have everybody at the same space for long hours, working together to create a thick, mesmerizing haze of sound.

„Megafauna“ reflects the intense state of mind that the band members were in during that time, dealing with many changes in their lives, both personally and professionally.

The recording session of „Megafauna“ was filmed and later released as a documentary live movie. The film captures the session very closely and intimately, and comes with different video art pieces that correspond with the album theme.
