'All My Friends Are Right Here With Me' is a CD compilation of artists covering songs by the indie-folk collective Tiger Saw. It was originally released with a book of the same name; the story of the first decade of Tiger Saw. Based on a decade of tour diaries and dozens of interviews, it tells of a community of bands in the DIY, post-Nirvana era. It features first-person accounts of tours with Kimya Dawson, Castanets, Jason Anderson, Viking Moses, The Hotel Alexis, and more.
Part travelogue, part studio diary, and part oral history, 'All My Friends' tells of an exciting time of collaboration, mutual inspiration, and perseverance in the ever-changing world of indie rock. It features detailed remembrances by members of Dirty Projectors, White Hinterland, Little Wings, Songs: Ohia, Tarentel, and many others. The book features concert fliers, tour photos, as well as comics and illustrations by Pat Corrigan, Tom Eaton, and Alan Bull.
