Homespun: Tilts, Cassingle EP

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 3:45 PM

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Tilts' debut EP, Cassingle. He had this to say:

Fronted by ex-Riddle of Steel frontman Andrew Elstner and bolstered by a few ex-members of Shame Club, the band plays ballsy riff-rock that sounded as good now as when T. Rex did it. But instead of melting your face with high-necked guitar fireworks (a hallmark of the band's past groups), Tilts would rather rock your ass with a thrusting groove. That's not to say that the six strings have been locked away. Guitarists Elstner and Andy White square off for Thin Lizzy-like harmonics on the chugalug workout "Give Me Some of Your Loving," a song that gives the best impression of the band's style.

Read the rest here. The band's opening for Har Mar Superstar on Tuesday night at the Firebird. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and tickets are $13 to $15. Stream music from the band right here.
