The band's newest album, "Tongues & Teeth", follows in the footsteps of the horn and string accentuated "All these Slippery Things", and now expands the sonic palate to incorporate both electronic and experimental sounds plus fierce edges within simple song formats.
IL GATO has been on the bill with The Mountain Goats, David Bazan, American Music Club, Sam Amidon and other quality acts. IL GATO songs have been played on radio (NPR, WEVL, KALX, Pandora, etc.), featured in notable online and print publications (San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Bay Guardian, CMJ, mySpoonful, Consequence of Sound) and enjoyed by many. In addition, a number of IL GATO songs appear in the critically acclaimed documentary film, "Crime after Crime", which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
