Dylan Metrano’s book All My Friends Are Right Here With Me: A Decade in the Indie Rock Underground has been published.
Over a year in the making, All My Friends Are Right Here With Me is the story of the first decade of the indie-folk collective Tiger Saw. Based on a decade of tour diaries and dozens of interviews, it tells of a community of bands in this DIY, post-Nirvana era. It features first-person accounts of tours with Kimya Dawson, Castanets, Jason Anderson, Viking Moses, The Hotel Alexis, and more.
Part travelogue, part studio diary, and part oral history, All My Friends tells of an exciting time of collaboration, mutual inspiration, and perseverance in the ever-changing world of indie rock. It features detailed remembrances by members of Dirty Projectors, White Hinterland, Little Wings, Songs: Ohia, Tarentel, and many others.
The book also comes with an exclusive CD of Tiger Saw covers performed by their friends: Jason Anderson, Cake on Cake, Guy Capecelatro III, Moons of Jupiter, Annie Palmer, Picastro, Gregg Porter, Quiet Bears, South China, Strand of Oaks, Anna Vogelzang, The Wailing Wall, and White Hinterland.
The book is available to order exclusively through Burst & Bloom Press:
Tiger Saw will be touring in support of the book in October, with their friends South China, who are supporting their new album Washingtons, and The Wailing Wall. In addition to an evening of music, select shows will feature dramatic readings from the book, performed by a collection of home-made puppets. Dates are here.
