The few lucky enough to have copped Atmosphere's limited Sad Clown Bad Dub 3 have already been introduced to Minnesota's finest hip-hop band, Heiruspecs. A Tiger Dancing allows them to step away from their backing duties, putting MCs Felix and Muad'Dib front and center. Their musicianship is predictably tight, with pleasing jazzy overtones and sparse organic beats, but Heiruspecs ain't the next Roots. A Tiger Dancing positions the group as a good live act-especially for the college crowd-but the album lacks the zest necessary to take it to the next level.
