Tauk’s 2013 full-length debut, Homunculus, showed off a young band skilled at maneuvering contrasting time signatures and creating exciting sonic atmospheres. The album opens with “Dead Signal,” which alternates between savvy groove and anthemic phrasings. All the 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. A.C. Carter’s work on keys complements Jalbern excellently (“Hello Narwhal,” “Dirty Mouth”). In sum, Tauk lends listeners a fine dichotomy of upbeat, danceable music and chilled, electronic-leaning soundscapes. Very ambient stuff, at times. The band’s next album is due out this summer, so you can probably expect some new material to work its way into tonight’s set. (Sandy)
