The Tragic Tantrum

From a single toy xylophone to epic orchestral arrangements, The Tragic Tantrum’s debut album is a journey through the looking glass. From driving keys and operatic highs to the subtle whisper of a close friend, Mirror, Mirror is a roller coaster ride transporting the listener from climactic emotional fury to soft, intimate reflection. Humor, sarcasm and silliness also take their place along the ride, reminding the listener not to take things too seriously. Although packed with drama and personal revelations, the album also stays true to the quirky and theatrical side of the band.

With influences from The Dresden Dolls to Danny Elfman, The Tragic Tantrum have selected their top eleven recordings to be featured on this album. From their very first song ever written “Excuse Me Mr” to their very recent “When I was Good” the album chronicles the band’s own journey within the first four years of their career. From personal insights to sardonic little tales, Mirror, Mirror is sure to usher the listener into a realm where opera, punk, romanticism, goth and rock co-exist in harmony, creating a deliciously rich playground of passion, drama and dark delight.

Best wishes in all things,

Over the past decade, he's been behind the bar or turntables in many of San Diego's nightclubs, and venues. He's shared his musical selections with Southern & Baja California, and the Mayan Riviera. During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
