Avner Stitch Solid hooks, unbearably catchy throughout, and a spectacular vocal dynamic. Honestly this entire album is a massive winner. Favorite track: Hands All Over Me.

Nick Burlett probably my new favorite album to listen to with headphones on; the textures are so deep and beautiful it makes my head happy :) Favorite track: Hands All Over Me.

steveinsocal "...Sure it's going to criminally overlooked by those who write about music for a job. Those of us who buy and write about music because it's a passion know otherwise... From the soothing clarity of the gentle guitar intro through intertwined synths and beats, "Last" explodes with the most piercing of high-pitched yet note-perfect refrains..."

Bret Miller A worthy addition to your collection if you're seeking music that brings the hairs on your neck up with moments of beauty and mystery. Tamaryn is joined by Jorge Elbrecht of Violens who brings atmosphere and angular new wave inspired sounds for Tamaryn to sing over. Invites repeated listens.

Jabod Tamaryn has gone for a radically different style in her third album. She has replaced heavy shoegaze guitars with a glossier synth-based dream-pop sound, reminiscent of Sisu or Frankie Rose (both of whom, I'm not surprised to discover, she performs with). Personally I love both styles.

Jorge Hernandez I got the limited edition white/grey haze vinyl. The whole art, booklet, vinyl and cover are amazing, super high quality for the price. Music is awesome. I'm new to Tamaryn, but she is just up my alley. A lot of sythpop, gothy, industrial-ish and dreampop influences which I love. Softcore has an amazing "ebm-ish" dance part that I love. Favorite track: Softcore.

about

With Cranekiss, Tamaryn emerges from her past in a way that’s inviting, warm-blooded, and shockingly direct. She’s made a big record, loaded with samples, synth triggers and processing that was missing from her previous efforts, the result of long nights grinding it out at the Brooklyn studio Gary’s Electric, where the record was born. The Waves and Tender New Signs focused on the sounds Tamaryn and her group could coax out of guitars, but with Cranekiss her sonic palette has exploded with maniacal abandon, pressed into service of a post-adolescent love letter to all the music that she and her collaborators hold dear, drawing influences from the feelings that fell out of her. Anyone familiar enough with those times should be able to draw their own comparisons, recognizing the modes of musical respect and adoration flashing past as the record spins. From there, though, Tamaryn has modeled these elements into simulacra, where despite the nods and glances to the past, play as a totally new sound.

Lyrically, this is Tamaryn’s most personal collection of songs to date, and Elbrecht has placed her voice front and center across the entire record, elevating her presence like never before. Cranekiss explores dark rock, dance pop, and glistening melancholy with a uniformly commanding presence across it all, in stormy, unsettled brushstrokes that apply pressure behind Tamaryn’s words.

Cranekiss represents a long journey, and a new phase in Tamaryn’s music unfolding before you, a blood-red kaleidoscope of desire and late night abandon, a bold step forward.

LOVE WIND AROUND ME
PEEL YOU
A ROUND HEART
LOVE WIND AROUND ME
TOUNGE TIED

LOVERS AT THE WRONG KISS
AND ON THE WRONG TONGUE
I’M ALWAYS AT THE WRONG PACE
I’M AT THE WRONG TIME

I KNOW YOU FEEL ME BURN UP
JUST LIKE THE HEAT OF THE SUN
I KNOW YOU FEEL ME BURN UP
AND CHARMED TO KISS YOU LONG

I KNOW IT FADED ALL ALONG

YOU’VE SEEMED TO MOVE ON NOW
FORGET WHAT YOU WANTED

FORGET WHAT THEY WANTED
I TAKE WHO I WANT
DO WHAT THEY WANT

I'M FALL, FALLING

Track Name: Last
DREAMS OF YOUR NEW LIFE
NO TEARS OR TROUBLES
TAKING ME OVER
DANCING TO THE TUNE I LIKE
IT TURNS ME AROUND
STUCK IN A LOCKED GROOVE

SAYING “IT’S OVER NOW”

IF YOU SAY THAT THIS WILL LAST
AND WE PLAY LIKE THIS WILL LAST
I’LL BE WAITING IN YOUR PAST
HANG UP BEFORE YOU LEAVE

CHASE ANOTHER LINE
WON’T SAVE MY TROUBLES
THEY’RE TAKING ME NOWHERE
LAUGHING ANY TIME YOU LIE
I SENSE YOU KNOW WHEN
TO FUCK WITH A MOMENT

SAYING “IT’S OVER NOW”

IF YOU SAY THAT THIS WILL LAST
AND WE PLAY LIKE THIS WILL LAST
I’LL BE WAITING IN YOUR PAST
HANG UP BEFORE YOU LEAVE

I’M NOT AN ANGEL
I FEEL MORE URGENT

HAVE TO GET ANOTHER MINUTE INSIDE
ALTHOUGH YOU’LL NEVER GIVE ME YOUR LOVE
TIME IS TICKING OVER

LITTLE ANGEL
MIRROR MY ANGLES
Track Name: Keep Calling
EVERY PART OF IT BEATS
WHILE TIME PROCEEDS TO RISE IN SALT
THEN SLOWLY RECEDES
DISSOLVE AND APPEAR
A PLACE THAT COMES ALONG
HEARING HER TIMBRE
IT TAKES YOU AWAY
AND YOU CALL OUT

YOU PUSH AND RECEIVE
YOU KNOW TO CALL OUT

EVERY MOMENT A SEED
A TINY PIT CAN RISE OR FALL
BUT NO ONE WILL RECEIVE
RESOLVE REAPPEAR
OH LAZY GIRL ALONE
HEATED IN TEMPER

IT TAKES YOU AWAY
AND YOU CALL OUT

YOU PUSH AND RECEIVE
YOU KNOW TO CALL OUT
Track Name: Softcore
SEE THEM FALL
RAINED DOWN NOW
SEE THEM CRY
"YOU KNOW YOU SHOULD TRUST ME"

CROSS THE LINE
RAIN FALL DOWN
CLOWN SAD TEARS
THEY ARE UP TO HERE

AND YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE


FEEL THEM BATHE
WITH RAINFALL DOWN
THE GUILT IN ME
IS SUNG IN NEED
Track Name: Fade Away Slow
ASSUME THE LIGHT
ISN’T TOO DARK
YOUR TEETH HAVE FALLEN OUT
AFTER THEY MADE THEIR MARK
YOU SEEMED TO LOOK
RIGHT THROUGH ME
I COULDN’T SHOW YOU HOW
TO QUIT YOUR TRUST OR LEAVE
NOW THAT I’M TURNING BACK
YOU START TO READ

[ASSISTANCE CAME TO LEND
A HAND BUT YOU’RE NO REALIST
YOU’RE TONGUE TIED]

HERE IS MY WORD
A CONTEST HAS BEGUN
HERE COMES THE SOOTHING PART OF ME
SENSE MY WORDS CONTEXTUALIZE LOVE
HERE COMES THE SOOTHING PART OF ME
THE CENTER DARK
CONSUMES THE LIGHT
HAS ANYBODY READ
THE SENTENCE THAT YOU HIDE
YOU SEEMED TO LOOK STRAIGHT THROUGH ME
I COULDN’T TURN AWAY
YOU PULLED FROM UNDERNEATH
NOW THAT YOU’RE TURNING IN
I START TO BREATHE

HERE IS MY WORD
A CONTEST HAS BEGUN
HERE COMES THE SOOTHING PART OF ME
SENSE MY WORDS CONTEXTUALIZE LOVE
HERE COMES THE SOOTHING PART OF ME

JUST ISN’T A PLACE FOR US
IT’S A COOL BREEZE

IS THAT WHAT THEY SAID?
PUSH ME DOWN
THERE’S NO WAY OUT

THE FLOWERS OF EMOTION NEVER FALL
THERE IS SOMETHING YOU NEED
THAT OTHERS LONG TO KNOW
BUT IT’S ONE THING I
DECIDED TO HOLD ON TO LONG AGO

SUGAR CAN
SUGAR CAN NOT

SOMETHING THERE
IS IN A BURST OF LIFE
LET’S WASTE IT NOW
AND WATCH IT DIE

FIRST TO SAY I MIND
WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO KNOW
WHEN WE’RE CRUEL TO BE KIND
THE FLOWERS OF EMOTION NEVER HIDE
IS THERE SOMEWHERE IN HERE
THAT I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW
WHERE IT’S PERFECT
I’LL DECIDE THAT I
PREFER TO NEVER GO

SUGAR CAN
SUGAR CAN NOT

SOMETHING THERE IS
IN A BURST OF LIGHT
LET’S WASTE IT NOW
AND WATCH IT DIE

I KNOW I SHOULD GO TO SLEEP
