TAUK
On their third studio album Sir Nebula, TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Revealing both their refined musicality and unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece (guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist/organist Alric "A.C." Carter, and drummer Isaac Teel) push into new sonic terrain and build entire worlds within each richly textured soundscape.

From the hazy atmospherics of "Time's Up" and soaring riffs of "Program Select" to the urgent rhythms of "Shenanigans" and sprawling melodies of "Where You Are," Sir Nebula finds TAUK introducing a cosmically inspired element to their music. "The album ended up taking on a more ambient kind of vibe than anything we've done before—there's a spaciness in the songs that lets you get lost in the sound," says Dolan. And while the album is endlessly hypnotic, TAUK also deliver the dynamic tension-and-release jams that have helped earn them a devoted following while drawing critical acclaim (the Washington Post, for one, praised TAUK for "creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that—thanks to a penchant for improv—offers limitless possibilities").

As with their past four releases, TAUK created Sir Nebula in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal). But in a departure from their previous work, the band made the album in one concentrated period rather than spacing the recording sessions out in between tours. Holing up at the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles, often pulling 12-hour workdays, TAUK ultimately found the revamped recording process hugely beneficial. "Everything just happened so naturally this time around," says Jalbert. "I can't think of one moment where it felt like anything was forced. We were all just completely focused and in the same mindset, which made it this incredibly fun and smooth experience."
Linear Symmetry
Chris Story (Keyboards) and Andy Alback (Drums) combined forces in 2013 to form the live-electronica group Linear Symmetry. The duo from Omaha has been on a direct path since their inception and continue to progress to new heights with every performance. They have quickly become known for their tight, energetic live shows which feature moving audible dynamics in the form of organic dance music. Pair this with their brilliant visual package and it's no surprise they have become festival favorites and late night staples.
After just one experience with this duo, it is clear there is no lack of symmetry between Chris and Ando. The two work together on stage and in studio with a common goal to send the listener on a sonic journey through their ever expanding catalogue of original dance music. Due to their unrestricted sound and raucous live show, they have the unique capability to perform for both rock and electronic audiences. Linear Symmetry has performed alongside EOTO, Shpongle and Twiddle; while also packing dance floors at major festivals such as Dancefestopia and BloomTown. Their linear path to new heights is not slowing, so be on the ready to get down when Linear Symmetry arrives in your area in 2015 and beyond. #LSduo #YearofLinear
