TAUK releases album "Homunculus" + tours East Coast

TAUK releases album "Homunculus" + tours East Coast

Releasing their full-length album “Homunculus” under the guidance of Grammy-winning producer Robert Carrranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) earlier this year, New York City’s TAUK prepares for a series of showcases in the coming days. The band produces sophisticated instrumental music without apparent effort - it could be described as post rock with heavier jam and funk influences.

Opening track “Dead Signal” (streaming below) evolves from mellotron wind whooshes to dominant guitar riffing over a rock solid bass and drums backbeat. Guitar phrasing and chord progressions echo the great fusion and jamband artists like Allan Holdsworth and The Allman Brothers Band. While keyboard textures throughout the album bring to mind the classic work of Brian Auger with his Oblivion Express. Returning to their home city after an extensive tour through the midwest and southern states (after earlier select opening dates supporting Robert Randolph and the Family Band this summer), the band will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 28th with Dopapod and Chromatropic. - Dave Cromwell
