"Tygerstrype have crafted something special here, a collection that's filled with enough psychedelic dance and electronic effects, using looped vocals, synthesizers, and various effects pedals to transport you to other realms, ones where colours that you never thought existed litter the horizon. 'Open Notes' has a Animal Collective bent before the more mechanical drum beats come in, whilst songs such as 'Malevolence' offer darker terrain. This is a solid release." - Sonic Masala

"Tygerstrype - Lackadaisical Daisy"

A slowly unfolding psychedelic pop journey from Philadelphia's Gabriel Guerrero (vocals, production) and Alden Towler (guitar). "Swells of ethereal ambience and upbeat sequencers set to economically, yet effectively used beats and Guerrero's crystal clear, powerful vocals and Towler's funky guitar licks. For fans of Merriweather Post Pavilion-era Animal Collective." - Weed Temple

"Lackadaisical Daisy"

"...the tracks push the boundaries of conventional pop through copious utilization of various electronic manipulations with synths, samples, effects pedals, and looped vocals. Spawned from these tools are celestial soundscapes, infectious melodies, and capricious song progressions reminiscent of a particular psychedelic freak-pop movement characterized by electronics and particular methods of lyrical phrasings. " - Hearing Gold


Lackadaisical Daisy LP - October 2011
If We Only Had Faces EP - July 2010



Influenced by the likes of Caribou, Why, James Blake, Animal Collective and LCD Soundsystem, tygerstrype's compositions are very beat driven. Gabe fiercely blends hypnotic vinyl samples with heavy synth & bass production beneath his vocals. Alden, whose sound scopes Omar Rodrequez Lopez, Forest Swords and Ratatat, compliments with experimentally orchestrated soundscapes and melodies ranging from surfy kitsch to deepend psych. 

 Tygerstrype Career Highlights Include:
FMLY Fest 2012 (LA & Philly), Eagle Rock Music Festival (2011),
Playing with The Octopus Project, Braids, The Ya Mos Def, Banned Books at Johnny Brenda's and other major venues in Philly, NY, and LA. Release of 1st full length record Lackadaisical Daisy with Magic Death Sounds 

Enveloped in celestial soundscapes and ethereal vocals, the two electronic pop experimentalists Gabriel Guerrero and Alden Towler have conjured infectious melodies coupled with capricious sonic movements. Originally conceived by Gabriel, Tygerstrype interrogates the boundaries of pop music within an electronic context of samples, synthesizers, copious effects pedals, and looped vocal harmonies. Alden joined Tygerstrype during the recording of the first full-length entitled Lackadaisical Daisy, providing dimension breaking guitar textures. Lackadaisical Daisy presents a series of microphone meditations spawning from the nebulous realities of dreams. A collection of songs that integrate the aspects of dreaming into an aural experience of the unmitigated soul. Beginning in Los Angeles, Tygerstrype has recently relocated to Philadelphia where they continue to develop innovative approaches toward a contemporary pop art form.
