Thanks to our friends at CincyMusic.com for the kind words they had to say about us.
Even Tiles are taking over the Cincinnati Music Scene in the next few weeks. The band has shows at Coda, Northside Tavern and The Southgate House Revival! And rightly so, this band is amazing. Their EP, The Lower Tangent is one of my favorite’s in a long while. I can’t seem to turn it off.
In the summer of 2012, Justin began rehearsing with four musicians to form the lineup that would eventually become Even Tiles. New songs quickly began to take shape, and their first show was played in September of 2012 alongside My Empty Phantom (Austin). After serving as the opening act for Night Beds’ (Nashville) Midpoint Music Festival performance in Cincinnati, and continuing on to perform with national acts such as The Appleseed Cast (Kansas), The Old Ceremony (Chapel Hill), The Kopecky Family Band (Nashville), and The Features (Nashville), recording began on their first release. Completed late 2013, the six song EP, The Lower Tangent has drawn favorable comparisons to Broken Social Scene and Deerhunter, and is the result of what each member brings to the writing process.
I grabbed Kent Mulcahy for some background on this band that needs to be in your ears. …

The Lower TangentEven Tiles
The Lower Tangent is the debut EP from Cincinnati band Even Tiles. With any new band, listeners can catch themselves trying to trace the musical family tree. In The Lower Tangent, the intro to the first single “I Tried” seems to rain down from the Montserrat monastery. But wait, this sounds like maybe something from the early 60’s British pop invasion. But who? Wait; is that a little Sonic Youth? Maybe Echo & the Bunnymen? Once the acoustical sound starts in track 3, listeners realize there’s no musical family tree with Even Tiles, there’s a musical forest. And it works. They blend it flawlessly, like the band members themselves. Outside a symphony orchestra it’s rare to hear both a beautiful ensemble and at the same time be able to appreciate the sounds of each instrument. “Money Changers” begs to be, needs to be on the soundtrack of a major motion picture. And that’s the thing with Even Tiles – the words and music conjure imagery that eludes the work of most other bands. The band will perform at the Chameleon in Northside on February 22.
