Miniature Tigers' Brandon Lee on New Album, Brooklyn, and Man-Bags

It's been two years since Brandon Lee, longtime bassist for Phoenix-bred trip-hop/alternative band Chronic Future and founding member of indie record label Modern Art Records, moved to Brooklyn, New York.
 
Since then, big things have indeed been happening for B-Lee in BK (along with the rest of the Modern Art Records' crew), including Lee's recent role as newest member in Modern Art's rising indie-poppers, Miniature Tigers.

The band recently wrapped up a brief two-week tour along the west coast, opening for Tennis. We caught up with Lee to discuss Tigers' upcoming album, Mia Pharaoh, their new (hilarious) video for song, "Female Doctor," which premiered last week at Spin, and life as a Phoenix music scene OG turned Big Apple hustler.

Miniature Tigers are scheduled to perform Thursday, March 8, at Crescent Ballroom.
