Scoring points

In that time, Tiger Saw have begun work on a new album that should be ready for release this fall. Tentatively titled Painted Birdz, it was tracked back in November with Djim Walsh at the Estate in Leominster. “It’s actually this old estate in Leominster that he’s the caretaker of,” Barrett explains. “It was built by some plastics magnate, and Djim set up this recording studio where he did the first Christians and Lions album, and Jason Anderson has also recorded there.”

Barrett hints that there may be a few surprises on the new disc. “You wouldn’t necessarily know it from other Tiger Saw recordings, but Dylan [Metrano] is a big fan of Prince and Fela Kuti. So he’s sort of trying to incorporate more of those interests. But we’re doing it in a Tiger Saw way because it would be kind of hard to jump from indie rock to a 30-minute funk jam.”

TIGER SAW + THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED | Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | May 8 at 8 + 10 pm; May 10 at midnight | $10 | 617.734.2501
