Tacocat announces exclusive NL show promoting 3rd studio album11-01-2016
One of the weirdest things humans do is to classify half of all humans as niche. As though women’s shit isn’t real shit—as though menses and horses and being internet-harassed aren’t as interesting as beer-farts and monster trucks and doing the harassing. That’s why Tacocat is radical: not because a female-driven band is some baffling novelty, but because they’re a group making art about experiences in which gender is both foregrounded and neutralized. This isn’t lady stuff, it’s people stuff. It’s normal. It’s nothing and everything. It’s life.
Tacocat’s third studio album, Lost Time (an X-Files reference, doy), is their first with producer Erik Blood. “ I would describe him generally as a beautiful wizard,” Nokes said, “ who, in our opinion, took the album to the next level. Wizard level.” Blood’s sounds are wide and expansive, bringing a fullness to the band’s familiar sparkling snarl. The Tacocat of Lost Time are triumphantly youthful but also plainspoken and wise, as catchy as they are substantive. “ Men Explain Things to Me” eviscerates male condescension with sarcastic surf guitar. On “ The Internet,” they swat away trolls with an imperiousness so satisfying you want to transmogrify it into a sheetcake and devour it: “ Your place is so low/Human mosquito.”
Happy to announce an exclusive Dutch show:
