Tamaryn celebrated the release of her third album, Cranekiss, with a show at Le Poisson Rouge on Friday night. This was a completely different lineup of the band that I saw her with at Levitation Fest in May, and I was maybe not surprised but a little disappointed that Shaun Durkan, who cowrote and played on Cranekiss (and did the artwork), wasn’t a part of the band on Friday. (He’s a busy guy with his own group, Weekend.) Her band did a good job with the songs from the new album, though it will surely get tighter once they’re on tour. Sound was a little bass-heavy near the stage but when I moved back, everything jelled a little more. Her 45-minute-or-so set was comprised entirely of Cranekiss songs (it was the record release show) and I thought “Last,” the Chameleons-eque “Softcore” and the album’s title track sounded especially good.

Opening the show was former Friends singer Samantha Urbani who has dropped a couple very catchy songs on her soundcloud recently. Her band included a guy who played a wind synthesizer which I had never seen played before.

Tamaryn has a few East Coast dates this week, including shows in Boston, DC and Philadelphia. All dates are listed, along with more pictures of her and Urbani at LPR, below…
