Courtesy Tier releases "Little Rock EP" at Rough Trade on 11.03

Courtesy Tier releases "Little Rock EP" at Rough Trade on 11.03

While instrumental mediocrity is tolerated in many DIY inspired genres like Punk, Garage and Slacker Rock, you do not want to sound sloppy when you play in a Blues Rock band. Brooklyn's Courtesy Tier know that, and produce music that's as tight as it is explosive - both on record and live. What's worth noticing though, is that they also, refreshingly, challenge a genre format that to many (us included) sounds at time stale. A song like "Cold" (from 2013, when they were still a duo), goes beyond the blues rock confinements, delivering something that's truly unique. In this track, Omer Leibovitz's relentless guitar recycles sonic references spanning from King Crimson's early prog rock to the instrumental technique of old timey banjo players, while Layton Weedeman's drums accentuate the song's loud/quite/loud contrasting dynamics. Now a trio featuring Alex Picca on bass, the band announced the release of their new EP "Little Rock," with a release party scheduled at Rough Trade on November 3rd.
