Bio

tiñsel tildé formed out of the burgeoning alternative rock scene in NYC in early 2002 and soon began playing out in clubs and bars to amassing interest. The duo at the core of tiñsel tildé, Robert Lucente and Lenny Tafro, had begun their collaboration in a previous Bay-Area based quasi-jam-band, Twenty Twelve, while both were living in San Francisco in the late 90s. The pair felt limited by the jam-band genre's focus on expansive instrumental excursions without attention to songcraft and lyric, and soon headed back to New York City, where a new indie rock scene was exploding - mashing up the 70's and 80's most interesting and seminal left-of-center bands with a current look towards experimentalism, genre-blending, and appreciative yet aloof tribute.

The two realized that their penchant for songcraft with deft hooks and meaningful content could be an asset instead of a liability, and forged ahead to record a sweeping demo EP, "Day of Reckoning". tiñsel tildé threw all of their musical tastes into the mix, from the East-Asian sounds and instrumentation of their neo-hippie roots to the dark electronic density of new–rave culture and the rootsy, Americana rock that naturally flows from their pens and strings without pretense or effort.


These guys are now on a mission, to spread a message of unity and progressive world consciousness or maybe just a new sound to some old ears who haven't heard everything… yet.
