Coyote Tango sounds like getting drunk by yourself in a semi-crowded bar: you’re lonely but comfortable. You’re confused, but it makes sense to be confused. You’re angry, but you’re feeling more and more hopeful as the night goes on. If you’ve heard rock and roll before, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what Coyote Tango sounds like. All three members of the band (Brian Champ, Matthew Klassen, and Anthony Neal) have wildly different influences. Brian got here from post-hardcore via melodic folk. He’s a freak about Iron Maiden and all things punk rock. Matthew made his bones playing Southern-tinged, sad blues pop, but now he just listens to goth music and new wave from the 1980s. Anthony has played every kind of rock and roll from angular and proggy to jammy and loose. He really likes Led Zeppelin. You put it all together and you get something kind of like if Josh Homme joined Kasabian but every song had to have an anthemic bridge part to close it out.
