THE TALL SHIPS
'On tariffs and discovery'

The Tall Ships second international release stands as their most cohesive effort to date. Not having the constraint of strict time tables, they took time to capture the feel of each song, exploring numerous spaces for sounds with breadth. Coming together in the US from three different parts of the US and three very different musical backgrounds, The Tall Ships trio find common ground that somehow works. This unique blend of differences gives the sense they grew up listening to very different music but for very similar reasons. And this mash-up of perspectives gives the Tall Ships a sound that’s fresh, different and yet still familiar.
The mixing of the album has been put in trust with Bryan Cook at Juice Monster Studio in Eagle Rock, CA whose artistry has already been employed by such stalwarts as Beck, Fleet Foxes, The Kills and Mercury Rev.
The Tall Ships features ex members of Cole, Glendale.
The Tall Ships have toured Western and Central Europe and played numerous shows in San Diego sharing the stage with Fin Fang Foom, Sleeping People, Rob Crowe, An Albatross, Milemarker, Rah Bras and Transfer.
