Carina Round Releases “Tigermending” on May 1

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2012 — Carina Round, the eclectic LA-by-way-of-England singer, whom the LA Weekly recently said of: “Just when you think you have her pegged as a smart, sensitive and tuneful singer-songwriter type, she’ll break into some freaky art-rock experimentation that raise goose bumps on your arms,” is set to release Tigermending, an 11-track album produced by Round and Dan Burns on May 1 via Dehisce Records (distributed through The Orchard).

“Making my home in the creative circus of Los Angeles has allowed me the profound opportunity to develop a loving and supportive community of brilliant musicians, artists, photographers, videographers and other collaborators. I’ve been fortunate to work with and learn from some of my favorite artists old and new, which has opened me up to new roads of expression,” explains Round. Collaborators on Tigermending include Dave Stewart and Brian Eno (“The Secret of Drowning”) and Billy Corgan (“Got To Go – The L.A Song- 2000 years BC mix”).

Written and recorded in 2011, Round describes the period working on Tigermending as one of “time and freedom to experiment and explore,” which gave each song a unique personality, ranging from “guitar ragers, acoustic beauties, electronic epics, a little prog moment and all the good stuff in between with a strong backbone running through the whole record.”

As Puscifer’s opener on recent North American treks Round re-introduced herself to fans and critics with an incredibly strong reaction from both. The Orange County Register described her as “an adventurous English rocker who marshals her demons in much the same howling, dynamic manner as Patti Smith…,” The Dallas Observer said of her set: “…she wowed the gathering audience… the Brit’s material showed shades of Nick Cave, all while maintaining an original and unique feel,” and Verbicide Magazine said “her gorgeous voice reverberated through the theater.”
