All Tiny Creatures are back with their second album Dark Clock, released May 28, 2013 on Hometapes, the Portland-based label home to Matthew E. White, Bear In Heaven & Megafaun. “This is like pop music from an alternate universe,” says Thomas Wincek, the founder of the Wisconsin-based four-piece. Hearing the urgent, upbeat, breathy direction of the first single “Quickest Cut,” you’re transported to a land where every child was raised on a steady diet of Steve Reich, King Crimson, the Beach Boys, and Def Leppard.
