"It may have taken her five years to release a new album but Carina Round has been far from idle. Collaborations (Puscifer, The Twilight Singers), side projects (Early Winters), several tours and a ten-year anniversary reissue of her stark, unflinching debut The First Blood Mystery have all fed into the creative process and gestation of her fourth LP. Named after a painting by New York artist Amy Cutler, Tigermending covers a lot of musical ground – “guitar ragers, acoustic beauties, electronic epics, a little prog moment and all the good stuff in between” – and captures the imagination with some wonderful production touches and gripping vocal arrangements. Brian Eno, Dave Stewart and Billy Corgan all make contributions, but this record is Carina through and through. Alan Pedder spoke to her over the phone a few months ago about some of what she’s been up to since the release of her 2009 EP, Things You Should Know."
