Arriving like the tragically fatal punch inflicted upon Apollo Creed by Ivan Drago in that harrowing Rocky IV scene, Tigers Jaw’s eponymous LP, released last year, was a shock to the system. But unlike the death of ‘The Dancing Destroyer,’ the shock that defined the Tigers Jaw LP was positive (a symptom of birth, not death) -- an album of astounding quality, flawless from start to finish. Yet while that shock has since worn off, it has now been replaced in equal measure by expectation and a yearning for more -- a yearning that has at least partially been quelled by the band’s latest release, the four-track Spirit Desire EP.
