Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Haunted Tiger – I’m A Mummy

November 16, 2010

Haunted Tiger – I’m a Mummy.\

47. Haunted Tiger – I’m a Mummy.mp3

A sterling example of how to rewrite rock in your own image. Haunted Tiger grab ahold of garage rock with both hands, coating it with black swathes of reverb, diving headfirst into a post-Goth whirlpool that takes the “always night – all the time” aesthetic of Bauhaus (specifically Bela Lugosi’s Dead) and converts it into a half-surfer, half-zombie juggernaut.

Thus duly reanimated, the undead victim is abused under the guise of their self-proclaimed “death rock” (or Death Roxx, as their label states it). It may not be easy being undead but Haunted Tiger make it sound way, way cooler than being alive.
