fear of tigers.


one of the worst things i have done to this blog (besides leaving it inactive for weeks every now and then) is that i hardly ever featured fear of tigers who is definitely one of the most skilled producers in this kind of music we are dealing with. born in japan, benjamin berry now resides in london and decided to release his debut album 'cossus snufsigalonica' as a free download. for those who are in a rush, hesitate no longer and get the full thing right now. glad i was around when he sent it over, so this looks like a worthy comeback post after a long period of quietness. enjoy another discodust premiere!

fear of tigers - cossus snufsigalonica (on mediafire)
fear of tigers - cossus snufsigalonica (on megaupload)
fear of tigers - cossus snufsigalonica (on zshare)
fear of tigers - cossus snufsigalonica (on rapidshare)

listening to the album, it turned out really difficult to pick the right tracks as they are all just so good. this longplayer is filled with so many good ideas, catchy melodies and stunning synthesizer work that it is hard to narrow it down to just a couple of tracks.

fear of tigers definitely goes all-in with this, leaving the uninspired boredom of all the average valerie copycats out there behind and giving established producers a run for their money by going straight for italo disco on steroids, melodic pop in the most likeable way and bringing the synth supernova! seriously, this guy has always been on my list of 'awesome producers' and if any labels out there are looking for a good remixer or a producer for the next kylie right now, get at it!

so i picked three tracks to give you an impression on what this mastermind is all about but absolutely recommend that you download the whole album, give it a good listen and spread the word.

fear of tigers - please don't leave
fear of tigers - sirkka
fear of tigers - study hard drugs school

become a fear of tigers fan on facebook, show him some love on myspace and check the hype machine for more goodness! (and of course, come back here soon for more updates! fingers crossed!)

Nice one dude, really like what I've heard of Fear of Tigers, "Love Like Semetx" being a fave", but I was hoping you could up that album to maybe Mediafire? The Rapidshare site says you HAVE to be a Premium member. They've started doing that recently to files over 80mb. I ALWAYS use Mediafire these days...

Thanks again!

aleks said...

more mirrors up now! and i'll add a mediafire one just for you now!

GSB said...

IN FOUR MINUTES!!!!! You rule son!

Bastille said...

Megaupload says file unavailable for me, and the zshare download stops after about 8 mb. Any ideas?

Thank you Fear Of Tigers! And Aleks for posting this. Total synth wizardry in this opus. "Study Hard Drugs School" still stands true as a personal anthem. An epic one at that.
