Tauk/Jahman Brahman 

When: Wed., June 24, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $10 ADV, $13 DOS
Tauk followed up their 2013 full-length debut, Homunculus, with the expansive Collisions, an album built to show off the band members’ individual and collective strengths. As ever, this young band is incredibly skilled at maneuvering contrasting time signatures and creating exciting sonic atmospheres. Album opener “Friction” puts A.C. Carter’s keys work on prominent display, shining a spotlight on some very interesting sounds. All of the band’s music is instrumental, but there’s never a sense that anything is missing. Guitarist Matt Jalbern, in particular, is capable of forming narratives through his strings. Throughout, Carter’s work on keys complements Jalbern excellently (“Hello Narwhal,” “Dirty Mouth” from the band’s previous album). In sum, Tauk lends listeners a fine dichotomy of upbeat, danceable music and chilled, electronic-leaning soundscapes. Very ambient stuff, at times. (Eric Sandy)
