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.”

Lee Terrace: Formed in 2007 in East Syracuse, NY, Lee Terrace strives to push the boundaries of modern rock and have a good time while doing it. Audiences can expect to dance, headbang, and groove to the electrifying guitar work of Kevin Metzger, expansive bass playing of Mike Sloan, thunderous drumming of Pj Sweeney, and keyboard wizardry of Ian Doherty. With two albums under their belt, Lee Terrace continues to explore new territory in their songwriting and playing, and they’d like you to join them on that journey.

Lee Terrace has had the privilege of playing with many national and regional acts, including Tim Reynolds, The Radiators, The Heavy Pets, Perpetual Groove, The Brew, U-Melt, Timbre Coup, Aqueous, Kung Fu, and more! They’re currently seeking to expand their audience beyond the greater central New York area, so if you’d like to book them for a show, shoot an email to leeterrace@gmail.com--and get ready to ROCK.
